They look good to me too Richard, I have tried this before at the coast using rocks, beaches and buildings and wondered why everything looked so flat or something and I came to the conclusion that bright moonlight kills beach photo opps because the scene looks like daytime after an exposure and with the moonlit sky so bright only a small number of stars can be seen to indicate that it was a night shot. I tried this with Dunluce Castle with Conor last year and we were very unhappy with the result. So, in my opinion, from my own experience, it would be best to re-shoot the scene again with weak moonlight or else on a very dark night and push out the exposure and see what results you get. On a dark night you could try 'painting' the rock with a torch to bring it out. These images remind me of a place on the Co. Antrim coast which looks incredibly like your location, I was planning on going there soon but really wanted a semi-dark or full dark sky for it. Would love to see night time showers with moonbows over the rocks in your images...that would look awesome. Autumn is not far away now so those times will be upon is soon...best of luck with it Richard, and the images still looks great to me anyway, I like the first lot and could imagine that being a great location to image a bright comet!
