At sunrise I took these 3 photos at a place called Mahon Pool, Maroubra, Sydney, Australia

Very nice! the second and third are my favorites. The second because the foreground just leads the eye toward the sunset and the third just kind of jogs the eye left then right toward the bright cloud.

Shane, thanks for sharing these. Beautiful photos.

Have you tried cropping the first photo? I would like to see the shot with the rock or cliff on the left side cropped out, and a small portion of the large rock on the right cropped also ( not the entire rock, just the right edge). I think that this would focus the photo on the crashing wave to a much greater degree.

Glad you like the photos Geoff :)

I liked your thoughts on cropping the photo where you said to do it. I will give it a go and see how it looks. Its always great to get someone elses opinion of what they see in the photos and how it might better it :)

Truly appreciate your input 👍

Is this the type of crop you meant Geoff? I think you are spot on with your idea once I cropped in and just focused on the wave and the sunrise 👍

Thanks to both you & Trevor for your input. Much appreciated 👍

Yup! This is the crop that makes the photo stand out!
