this is extremely well done--the exposure, the conversion, and the composition. I love it.

Come on, Mal. You know this would be well received elsewhere, but I like it just as much here.

Absolutely beautiful Mal
Gotta love that fog come sea.
Ahhhh! .... More primeval gloop ... you have allowed this to simmer delightfully Mal.

I love your photos. They astound me. Especially, in this, how water seems to be falling downwards at the bottom of the frame, with the curve of the wall.

I tried this for the first time at the weekend, pretty disappointing results due to the weather and my lack of understanding. I like this one and kudos to you for these successes. smile
These long exposure pictures of yours are spectacular Mal. Great shot!

So glad, I am, that this image returned with Shutterchance.

Love the gorgeous, heroic, sweep of the wall, and the BBQ grill marks on that large chunk of prime beef in the foreground, mal.
Very nice shot Mal!
I´m like your work!
Best regards,

Safe? It looks so smooth you can slip on it. And there are no slippery when wet signs.

Excellent picture though.
Swwwweeet Mal, how are you doing bro?

Again this special atmosphere of loneliness, isolation, desolation, rather apocalyptic- the title sounds ironical to me- because I don't see anybody who could help me or talk with me- sky and water are the only 'patners', but they don't look inspiring trust and confidence, the water could pull me down into the depth where some wrecks might be resting, and the rocks could hurt me while falling down- no world where I could and would like to live!
Mal, may I say a personal word, you might be obsessed by this atmosphere of world- and, sorry, I could be worried about yourself!
Your photos are just stunning. You have your own style as well, your not just copying someone. (Unless I've not seen their work yet). Great stuff as always.
