Durdle Door, Dorset

Another shot from the same evening as the previous two posts, this time the classic shot of Durdle Door. When shooting this iconic scene you have a couple of choices, do you use a shutter speed to catch a curling wave and use it as a lead in line or do you use a slightly longer shutter speed to catch the sea rushing back.

I’ve included the shot below to demonstrate what I mean. Personally, I used to prefer the longer shutter speed but more recently I am leaning more towards the curling wave.
