Pretty much the same spot as in Wellfleet I. Maybe 300 feet ahead and to the right.
My main questions are whether the crop works and whether there is enough here to sustain interest.

I like it - the repetition/rhythm of the grasses is most interesting visually.

I might consider experimenting with the sky ... it is competing, rather than complementing the grasses. Also, there seems to be a "tilt left" aspect/illusion to it ... might need some tweaking there.

I think this is caused by the receding marsh on the right - doesn't bother me - too much parallelism might diminish the impact.

I like this one better because of the wave-like grass.

Thanks to you all.
The wave-like grass is the subject, of course. Really neat to see.
I agree that the sky offers little. Happy to see what others do. I applied a couple levels of subtle neg exposure gradients to get something there but there isnt much.
Would I be better with an even narrow band of sky at the top?
BTW, single image, extensive vertical crop, a bit of crop from the left. Visualized in pano format and as a BW conversion; shot RAW as I always do.
Occ I follow the instructions given on the comp workshop I took in Savannah last fall. We shot only BW for the first few days and had cameras set to RAW+jpeg with or without toning, filters to provide preview/easier visualization of BW output. I probably should return to that practice routinely.
Handheld.

Perhaps a wee bit of burning and dodging?

I try to be sure and carry my "squint test" equipment with me wherever I go.

Thanks Karen. Better. But I still agree the sky is lacking
