    Skumar I have had a look at some of them (you have posted way too many to look at them all) and I was immediately hit with the lens distortion. I found that I was focussing on that rather than the subject matter.

    Thanks!!

    I have cut them back to 4. Some were taken at 16mm FF, hence the distortion. The distortion is rather strong on the edges of the frame.

    I like them.. I am no expert and I have heard the comment of the lens distortion being distracting before.. but it dosen't distract me although I did notice it.

    Nice composition in 1 2 &3 although 4 didn't do much for me.. my fav is #1

    Hi, are you Stephen? Thanks very much! I also like the colours, but wonder if I have gone too far with the processing.

    Warm regards.

    Thanks for the comment mate. 16mm FF does create significant distortion. I don't mind it too much though, it provides a variation from the normal perspective. I believe there is software that can correct this to some degree.

    The blue sky really pops out nicely and mixes with the boat.
    great job!
