Nice, I love the way you have captured the movement of the water.

Quite right!

So, I'll try a grumpy old man approach for a change (hypothetically speaking, of course):

"Why are you wasting my time and bandwidth showing me your trash bin candidates??? When nothing, absolutely nothing in a picture is sharp, yet it is not blurred enough to indicate a deliberate intent, the only thing that is left for it is trash!!!"

Better?

I bet you would ultimately prefer my smart-ass comment, no?

From another grumpy old man: I don't see anything in that photo that would benefit in the slightest from more sharpness. It's nice just the way it is.   Roll Eyes

I must be a member of the Olde Fashioned School, but I still think that some element of any picture should have sharpness - even a tiny detail. The lack of it here doesn't work for me. If you had a little sharpness in the bottom left, perhaps,  I think it would have anchored the image and would have worked much better.

Sorry Riaan, I agree with Seamus. I also agree with Slobodan but not in Slobodan's terms. Blur is for movement in the subject, not in the camera. Unless you're panning; then blur is for everything but the subject.

Golly! Outvoted by all the other Grumpy Old men.
I sit corrected (but unsharpened).  Wink

Seems like I keep scanning the water between the breaking waves trying to find something, anything -- the effect is mildly annoying.

I don't care if the image is in focus or not. I don't care if there's motion blur created by the subject or by camera shake. I only care about the image, and I like this one. I think the blur/shake/whatever works rather well in this context.

Too much null space for my tastes.  And I'll hazard a tomato by saying I see no benefit to the intentional softness.

Would it be fair to say it's like lots and lots of other images? The colour may be different, but, ......

You're absolutely right because your post is like lots and lots of other posts. The letters and spaces may be differently arranged, but, .....

I am certainly less senior than some of the GOM but I rather like this shot.  Maybe some of  the GOM need to loosen your anchors and drift a bit.  Smiley

It would seem that "grumpy" trumps "smartass".
