I will try and post this again. The first picture I like. But the second two seems like the sky is washed out. If that could be darkened then I would like them all.

But that is just my opinion.

Ha, yes. I am very comfortable with photoshop and post processing, so a lot of times the battle for me is actually trying to preserve the actual image. So far, I have tried to keep from doing composites unless very necessary. So it is interesting, I acknowledge that the 2nd picture could possibly look better if it had the same mood, but my internal policing stops me from adding elements to it. I am not sure if i am being unreasonable.

Unfortunately, the most interesting part of this picture is the sea.
What sea?

Um, what I meant was, I am not sure if I was being reasonable. Its a philosophical question : If I have the time and skill to manipulate an image completely, should I?
At this point, I feel as if it would be cheating. Some would argue that I already am cheating with the amount of post work put into my images. Its all a matter of perspective, I guess....but I digress.

@p38arover : haha

No problem at all. Like I said it was just my opinion.

@jbrowning : Thanks
@Sandy: Saw those comment on flickr, thanks for the input! I agree about the highlights..i struggled whether to remove them in post...but i argued myself against it. Hahaha...i am my own worst enemy.
@Kenafein: Thanks! I think I was more lucky I wish I consistently come up with results like that first shot, but i havent managed that quite yet.
