A little bit stormy
I got a text from a friend in the morning saying that the sea is going pretty crazy in our harbor. Not thinking for too long I got dressed up, had quick breakfast and headed there. I checked on the internet about the tides and it showed that the best should be just happening in next hour. Oh man I have never seen anything like it before. The both piers had been getting drown under the water.
The wind was blowing exactly in my direction and shots was absolutely impossible to take as the breeze was splashing my lens every time I was aiming at the sea. I was so glad to bring my all waterproof clothing, otherwise I would get wet within minutes.
After some time I decided to relocate and drove to Dun Laoghaire port where I took another series of shots. And this time was not easier at all. The breeze was really pulling on my nerves, but I fought till the last minute.
Hopefully my gear did not get effected too much by the salty sea water as it got splashed on number of times 🙂
Now please tell me, which one you prefer Colour or B&W

wow! te zdjęcia są fantastyczne!!!
I prefer black and white, because it gives a more dramatic effect ! Very nice photo,s thanks for sharing!
This is fantastic
Great shots. For most of them I vote black and white though its a close thing as both versions are great. For the last one I vote colour – I like the red roofs and blue building and think it probably helps pull the eye through the picture.
1 – color, with work on development if you have the raw
2 – b&w
3 – color, the matching color from the brown grass with the rest of image is nice not to mention the green patches, great sky and clouds, the wave splash too of course. my favourite. Stunning on a large print.
4 – b&w, although it worth a try in color development to see what can come out from the houses and clouds
5 – b&w
Nice risky shots.
quite difficult to tell wish I like most, both colour and B&W are awesome. But I like the 4th and the 9th most.
“Which” instead of “wish” 😀
yet again, beautiful photos,
and thanks for visiting me at my blog…
B&W adds more drama methinks 🙂
Third shot is my favourite, I prefer the drama of the b+w versions, but have to say they are all great shots.
Thank you all for the visit and leaving comments. Personally I can never choose which I prefer most, it’s always a dilemma…
Wonder now what the weather brings next… 🙂
I liked the last one
I like both the color black and white photos. Each bring out detail in the photo. Love the water action against the stationary objects.
Thank you 🙂
Thanks for your comment and visiting my blog
Wow – these shots are magnificent!
It’s not the shots it’s the nature 🙂
powerful images! I love them
I am glad to hear (read) that 🙂
amazing, i think i have to say i like the b&w best for the most part, i love to see the water shooting up over the rocks
Wow – these are wonderful. I love the B&W versions. They have such impact and contrast. How much fiddling did you have to do in the b&w versions? Did you use photoshop or something else?
Thanks for dropping by to ‘Gday Canucks’. I would not have found your blog if you hadn’t visited.
Thank you very much for leaving your comment here. Well, I use photoshop + a couple of plugs to that like viveza, color efex pro + silver efex pro, For the landscape or sea scape I try only to play with contrast and a little bit with colors. Don’t know whether is much fiddling or not ;/
Black and white for the drama, personally. Excellent photos!
good news Pawel – my brother wants to order a print of one of the sea shots! I will call you to arrange 🙂
Really nice shots. I prefer the b&w as it brings out the details and texture of the water/spray and clouds; I also think it adds a darker mood that nicely complements the subject matter.
Love them! The black and whites add an extra element of drama 🙂
That text came right on time.
Beautiful, it is lovely light, but I agree with most others, the B&W just has that extra impact on the whole. Amazing.
(and thanks for looking at my blog)
Thank you. You have amazing captures as well, it was a pleasure to see your work 🙂
Thank you so much – it is a lovely way to discover other people’s work!
Awesome shots – there’s little that’s more dramatic than a stormy sea.
Great shots, the penultimate one especially is outstanding.
