This is an exceptional set to my eyes. #2 - I love the low angle and foreground interest with the white bubbles and sand formations. #3 through #6 - fabulous minimalist images with wonderful soft pastel colors; #3 my favorite with its perfect exposure length and the streaks going diagonally through the lower half of the image. Inspiring images which I will remember the next time I am at the coast.

Fred you hid the best on the Clouds thread LOLOL

The curved water on 4 and the Clouds one are striking because long water exposures are usually straight, but these meander in lazy curves.

Agree the low angle on 2 works, and you got the verticals vertical!

Also, I applaud the horizon in the middle, forget the rules LOL - too many samesame images with the Rule of Thirds nonsense

It always shows the skill of a photographer when you make a good series of images from a limited range of subjects and make them all different, a super set.

Super set, of which #2 and #7 stand out for me, but they're all so good...

I love these wide beaches which I know from some holiday visits to Schiermonnikoog. Your wonderful set of photos bring me to mind again the fantastics stays there. Especially I like ## 3 and 4.

Lucky you. We have ugly rainy days here. Far from the sea, mountains...
It is really hard to find something here worth to photograph. Even Christmas decorations look shabby with no snow around.
Nice set. I am also voting for numero dos (2).
TFS.

Thanks all for the kind comments! Much appreciated. Nice to see that there are different favourites, although there seems to be one 'winner' overall.

@Roger: Never thought I could inspire experienced and skilled photographers like you

@bigsi: That was my challenge indeed. I only walked a short distance,d looked around and played a bit with my variable ND filter too tp get some variation.

@Howard: You're welcome for a mini DM at the coast when you are around for a family visit

That's why I gave it a special place . It took a couple of tries to give these meandering curves.

This was just a lucky moment on my last day off. Most of the X-mas break was wet, grey and dull which made me struggle too. I wass hoping for a nice sunset, but when I left it had statred raining again, end completely clouded.
