Morris,
The first image does not do much for me, but the other two are really nice. On the third image, I like how the ray draws the eye to the breaking wave. It might be worth increasing the midtone contrast on that third image just a bit.

it doesnt look like you are that close to the "subject", does a flash really add that much in a scene such as this? especially at these longer focal lengths?

I really like #3. I agree with Keith's suggestion. Give it a try.

Thank you Keith,

I already added all the mid-tone contrast I could to the third without it getting wacky. A friend suggested B&W:







What do you think?

The better beamer gets the flash out there, it's quite amazing. You can see the difference on the spray in this image:







It is not huge yet it helps

Thank you Harsha,

I do too though I already pushed the mid-tone contrast as far as I could without strange effects. Take a look at the B&W I put up.

I really like #3. The waves moving against the wind and opposite the rays of light shows nature being less than harmonious. After some thought I realized that I also like the high key presentation of the image. Thanks.

I like the black and white version of number 3, but I think I prefer the color of number 3. I understand what you mean about things getting wacky when you increase mid-tone contrast too much. Oh by the way, I like your last image (the fifth one) the best - very nice composition and colors, and very dynamic to me.
