Nice tones for the moment. Can't say how much light there was since the sky is so dark.

Good title. Horizon is perfect which quite often makes or breaks a good seascape and I love the sense of movement too. The whole composition demonstrates gray scale perfectly. Hope your scoring well

I have looked at this photo about five times. This is on the edge of being a superb photo, the shades and lighting are cool. I think it may have benefitted from a higher shutter speed to stop the motion of the water a bit better. In any case, nice photo.

Love those breaking waves. Look at them. One just completed and is silk smooth while the other is just breaking. I would love a better tonal balance, but all the same here is my 8 for the good catch.

There is something about the two different styles of wave crashes that really draw me to this picture. Great capture.

Awesome shot. I love how the right side is motion blurred, while the left is frozen still. Very dramatic shades of grey.

Soothing crashes indeed. Looks like a very good scene to go to and you captured it well, somehow I get the feeling that it would look good in colour but don´t get me wrong, I like the shot as it is.
