Sure, you can read my journal... my plein-air confessions. I for one, am not religious when it comes to plein-air. If I can envision a way to improve it; I have no qualms about adding swirls to my sky, or a tree to keep the horizon from flat-lining. (Detect editing in the top two versions?) I'm not crazy about this one, not persuaded that the composition works. Though the boat was interesting, here my intended focus was the sky- thus the vertical format. Still, I wonder if it's too bottom-heavy. May check the mirror for changes. When honest with ourselves, we know they're not all keepers.
Well, the experience was exciting anyway. The wildlife that day! ~ as I packed up my bag... AHH, I ~screamed~!! & ~carried on~!! Was it a huge tarantula in there...?? The new guy just looked amused as he carried his stuff on to his car. Then he casually came back to ask if I was OK, after I fought off the deadly enemy, which turned out to be a crab. Later, I realized... the provisions out there! I should drop a crab pot next time.
