Face Rock Beach
As often the case when trying to find an image for a particular project I come across everything but. However, this brings back happy memories and a lovely evening on Face Rock Beach, Bandon, Oegon back in September 2011. I've posted the same image before (here) but I've re-edited to crop out the house on the cliff and I've cloned out the bait digger, too. I really could have done with the photographer chappy to the left of centre and I did try to "move" him but it was more trouble then it was worth.

The trouble with seeing this at 2000px wide is that the head movement of the guy in the red jacket is more obvious and now he looks faceless

I loved the first image Alan, and your re edit has made it even better, I never thought of the house as a distraction but it is better gone.
The colours and reflections are glorious.

OK faceless guy accepted it is a better edit, or so it seems as the original was only 900 pixels wide.
But looking again at the original, leave the house in, bury the bait digger and crop from the bottom to just under the rock reflection for a wide panorama type shot.
Still love it so thanks for re-posting.
Peter just beat me to it

Can only agree with the comments above, and comparing the first edit I think this is the better of the two, smashing colours and reflections

Interesting to see what back to the drawing board can achieve, but George has even more thoughts for it, and a crop to make it panoramic could be good.
If your worried about the photogs face why not clone a copy of your head onto the body ??
But two nice shots none the less, well done.

A super re edit Alan. Had no problems with the first edit, but this one the colours and the reflections are really outstanding , and agree the digger had to go. Well done.

I think I would be tempted to shift the horizon down whilst maintaining the reflections in the water. I think it would provide a better balance and be more in line with RoT.
I don't mind the TOG but maybe if he were looking at or into the picture rather than out of your screen he would be more acceptable.
