I really like the pair of rocks at the right, and I actually prefer them emphasised, be it brighter or outlined or both. To my eye, they point at the drama out to sea like a pair of fingers. Their crisp, contrasty outline reminds me of the eerie light one sees when there's a really dark sky just before or after a heavy shower, and the illumination is coming like a searchlight through a hole. The sun might, I'm not sure, bein the wrong place for that to be literally true of the foreground lighting, but I get that same feelinganyway.

I'd love to see any of these versions somewhat bigger. The composition deserves it. Please could we see itif you make any more?
