    Thought I'd share a few images from our recent holiday at the beach. Most of these were taken with the NX100, with a couple shot on my little old Canon P&S.

    Comments and crits welcome. :smile:

    Well composed although I'd like to see a bit more sky detail in some of them.

    These are nice, jealous that you get to see turtles up close.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. :smile:

    Yeah, I see what you mean Bill. These were all edited on my laptop (whilst sitting on the deck, enjoying the ocean breeze :biggrin:) so I'll probably find I need to re-edit them when I get back to my home (calibrated) monitor.

    Great series of images, although I agree with Bill's comment that pulling down the exposure of the highlight areas would add a lot of extra texture and detail to some of them. BTW, where was the holiday?

    I like this one very much, but I would play with curves in post proc, would love to see more detail in highlights

    Cheers guys.

    We were at a little beach town called Woodgate, just south of Bundaberg. A great place to go if you just want to switch off and relax.
