First outing with my A99.  I decided to treat myself when a bargain appeared the other day.

Congratulations on your new purchase.  It is a great camera but getting a tad heavy for an 'ole bloke so am using the A6300 more and more and "looking at the A7RIII.

The guys will tell you I am into pruning and in each of these I would take off half the sky and turn them into panos.

first one- all the action is in the glint on the water leading the eye to the groyne and the black hump in the water (wave or sandbank ? The black cloud halts the eye from moving out of the frame and I would crop it off to just above the central black tongue.  This gives a mu7ch stronger image in my view.

Similarly in the second one but not so pronounced.  All the action occurs below the horizon and anything above the horizon is not necessary....john

For me the principal reasons for the purchase of the a6000 were the size an weight with the added plus of the high pixel count. Like chap I am not interested in schlepping anything bigger or heavier. I already have a Canon 7Dll to fit that bill.

Lovely quiet scenes but I am not a B & W guy and honestly can't begin to appreciate them without their lost color.

 Of the 2 i like #2 best even though they are in rather contrasty harsh light, you have done a good job. If the sky had a bit more drama and texture it would be a really nice shot.
 I still miss my A99, it was a great camera to use. I'm now so use to my A7 series cameras i've gotten over wanting it back due to their amazing image quality. Not that the A99 is lacking in any way of course.

In my view, the crops both produce much stronger images.  Thank you for trying them...john
