Ahh..there's always the sky after a three day's heavy rain whichwas of course veryvital!

I'm glad that the sensor couldpick the slightest reflection of the heavenly glow on the pavement : ) ...and wouldoverjoy to hear your preference between the two!

Hello Bahadir! I would choose #1 as my favorite, the main reason is the reflection that you mentioned and I think the foreground compliments the overall feel of the photo for me. On the second shot I do like how the hills in the distance are just a bit lighter, very nice work on both my friend!

I like them both, but like #1 the best. Both are lovely, however.

In the first shot, the lines in the pattern on the pavement lead the eye into the picture, first to the distance and then upwards to the more promising weather heavenwards through the gap in the clouds. It therefore feels a richer composition.

Bahadir,

I found the first shot more satisfying. The inclusion of the pavement and the lonely post adds a touch of solitude not as readily apparent in the second shot.

Like yourself I too am drawn to the ocean especially at either dusk or dawn.

Cheers and aloha

In fact I was going to send the second one at first but later I felt the necessity of posting both due to the reasons you pointed out in yourkeen observation.

Thank you my friend!
