    Just got back from visiting our son in Esperance on the south coast - a 1500 km round trip. Shot in RAW and processed in LR3.

    Oh man! I'm a sucker for WIDE glass, and these aren't helping. Looks like a great trip, Bill. Thanks for sharing them! :smile:

    Great. I love that first shot in particular. Do note that the horizon is slightly out (it slopes down to the left).

    The second one doesn't quite look as I would expect. The top of the sky is a little dark and the sand is somewhat duller than ideal. I think cropping top and bottom would help lift it.

    The colour of the water is wonderful in both.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the feedback - horizons are my downfall - UWA seems to make the problem worse. Here is a crop of Twilight Cove.

    I like this one. It's not easy to make a wide-angle shot work, and this one certainly does.

    I use the G1's guidelines feature to level my horizons (when called for)... wonderful feature.

    I love my 7-14!

    Beautiful shots!

    Just say the view is so wide it captured the curvature of the earth ;)

    I agree getting horizons are tough - I did see there are cameras starting to come out with digital levels built in.

    Nice! I may be in the minority, but I like the uncropped version more - I love what UWA lenses do with lots of clouds against a blue sky. The slight darkening of the sky doesn't bother me at all. But I like the cropped also!
