On my very first view of your first beach photo, I thought that the person and dog near the water's edge really made the photo, the human element as counterpoint to and emphasizing the windswept bleakness of the rest of the scene. I thought it a great photo.

In comparison, the second photo seems rather bland.

I've no opinion what I'd think of the second if I hadn't already seen the first.

Thanks Tolusina & Nat_WA. Very interested to hear both your thoughts. I agree and the second image has now magically disappeared as it's not one I would normally put into the public domain  ;)

Another shot from Holkham with 5DS + 40mm Pancake. f/6.3, 1/640. ISO 400. I used the horrendous field curvature of my particular 40 mil at infinity to have the focus area where I want it. I'm not sure if all 40 mil pancakes have the same extent of field curvature as mine has.

Here's a shot from earlier today, it's a clump of trees that I saw a few days back but the background was too fussy to shoot. Today, the mist rolled in and I thought I'd go and take a look.

Nice picture GMC, it really lends itself for B&W - and although it's a clump of trees it becomes one organic shape in your picture. Thumbs up  :)

More of a seascape than landscape ;)

Just my luck, a weekend at the coast and it is freezing and strong winds...  :( Sea is calm as the wind comes over the dunes behind me
