Hi Raiderfan

Wow... all 3 photos are truly keepers! (I'm surprised no one has commented on your post yet).

The colours and exposure are very well done (I'm aware how challenging this can be).

Photo #1. I love the moodly 'curled' big dark cloud, contrasting against the lighter sky, and the 'lead in lines' & interest of the jetty / pier.

#2 - the ship sitting "on" the water here really makes the shot.

#3 - great orange-ness!

I do hope you were not looking at the sun in the sunset photos using a DSLR through the optical viewfinder (it can damage your eyes, even permanently burning your retina). Even on live view, it can be dangerous to your sensor if it's longer than just a 'brief photo'!

Thanks for sharing. I've travelled quite a lot, but not been to Jamaica, so I appreciate seeing photos from there.

G'day RF

As my Aussie mate PJ says ^ .... all keepers

cc- if I may
While all three images are spectacular in their individual ways, I find that image #2 has too much empty sky & water, taking my eyes away from the boat and that g-r-e-a-t sun. If it were my pic, I would pano it to a longer image shape, but to crop it keeping the 4 x 6" shape I would get the crop below

Does this crop work for you??
