Mick,

All really great shots. That #2 is cool! My favorite is #1. My only suggestion would be in #1 try a crop that takes out about 1/3 or so of the sky. I think this might bring out what is best in the shot, the land and water.

BP - these are all just fantastic! Difficult to choose a favorite. #1, 3 and 4 are simply gorgeous. I also love the flowing water shot and your son (I assume he was playing with a flashlight?). Really nicely done.

I also agree with jj about #1, if you crop the top and make it a 16:9 ratio, the jetty will look more dramatic.

Mick,

really great shots and the fungus is very strange, do know the name of the species?

Very good job.

Cheers,

Stefan

Thanks for the comments.

saly, I drew the outline around my son with my bright LED bicycle light during a 60 second exposure.

Stefan, I have no idea the fungus name I'm afraid, but it did look quite unusual.

Oh, and I re-cropped the first shot - it's updated in the original post above.

Great shots, Mick, very nice. My family used to spend Christmas holidays at Brunswick Heads. You just brought back a whole lot of memories.
