Beautiful, as ever. I like the way the shape of the dark cloud echoes the curve of the shoreline. I think it would be even better without just a bit of the foreground. The grasses are different in texture from the rest of the shot and, I think, don't add anything to it.

I like it as well - love the movement of the grasses in the foreground. Lovely work.

Timo,
I like it better than Wind I. The blurred grass conveys a better sense of wind than in your first photo. The rest is just beautiful, great tonalities, contrast and mood.

Timo, Another winner. Almost makes me want to go find another view camera -- but then I'd need to set up a darkroom again. Guess not.

Another beautiful shot Timo, but I agree with Jeremy.  IMHO, the grass doesn't add anything and was a bit of a distraction to my eyes from the rest of the scene.  But still a great image.

I am not sure if I like it better, but I sure do like it! You must have worked fast to retain the movement in the clouds in both photos.

Well, given the title, I like the movement of the grasses.  It does make the image busy, but I can live with that.  The rocks to the left of the grass I could do without, but you can't crop out the left side without losing too much.
