I love the top one! The bottom one has a bit too much of the long exposure misty look for me. Also, the clouds and sky colours in the top one are more interesting.
But when seascapes come up this bland, you can see why people bang big blockers on and go for misty water.
Adjustments like this I do in Pixlr and save directly to my Picasa gallery.
My own originals I upload to Photobucket at the size they appear on the forum.
Posting on here is then just a matter of copying the IMG code in Photobucket and pasting the code straight into the post. with Picas I Right click>Properties on the Picasa image and copy the image address thenpaste that into the post using the insert picture option in the toolbar...

OK cheers, seems if I let flickr do the resizing its where I run into bother, if I 'save for web' in PS first then upload I dont seem to get the strange blocked up shadows and wierd colours.... anyway, took your suggestion on the crop
both images are the same, one in flickr, one photobucket, strange how you still get a slight difference between the two.

I'm never going to heap great praise on a 16/17 level shot, because it is so easy to just stop there and never crack the next level.
If I am being honest, compositionally I prefer the second one, maybe slightly lower down and 10 minutes earlier for the better light/sky would have looked nicer, but anyway ticked Skinningrove off my list now, next weekend its 4 miles down the coast to Staithes, see what Mr Cornish seems to like so much about it.
ohh, and heres one I purposely took as a 'rule breaker'.

Keep plugging away, cracking the art of landscape photography is a lot harder than you first expect...
Just a bit of decent light and your rule breaker would be the best.
