Another nice one, Pramote. Well-seen composition and a good arrangement of islands all of the same size, found and not cloned....

The sky is lovely. I think there's a bit too much of the rather featureless land at the bottom, though, and the image would be better if some of it sort of fell away (I'm avoiding the c-word!).

Nice pod of whales you have there!  But I'm with Jeremy about the bottom.

v2 does an even better job of letting the viewer discover the distant fogbanks.

Those are known as the Porcupine Islands. Nice picture, Pramote. Hope you're enjoying your visit to Maine.

i lose the sense of the floating world with such a strong anchor of the dark foreground. My  impression is this image is about the sky, the water reflection, and the sense of another world starting at the islands. i would frame it even tighter - capturing only a sliver of the foreground land.
