Nice sense of what the title proclaims!
Incidentally, have you noticed how the last two shots have almost identical sea colour? We used to get that light slate look on the west of Scotland sometimes.
The sweat, blood and tears I'm shedding at the moment doing my (probably last!) set of scans presents me with problems in the other direction. The seas seem to have too much red or magenta most of the time, and I have to do a hell of a lot of masking off to change the water colours only; doing a general alteration, whether dark, medium or highlight, simply effs everything else. That's a very good reason for preferring b/white!
Thing is, once these shots are up and running, I'm faced with the problem of actually doing something new. I sometimes wonder why one does all this; suppose it could be worse: football or something. Well, watching it is what I meant.
