Ocean images on a mirrorless trip - part 2

I have been experimenting with three different camera outfits on this two week trip -- a Fuji X-T1, Leica M (240), and the new Sony RX100 III. If you measure the winning system by amount of usage, then the Fuji X-T1 is winning, followed by the RX100, which I always have tucked into a pocket for grab shots. The Leica M delivers really excellent images, but the constant lens switching and a 135mm cap on my telephoto option has caused me to forsake it for the convenience of the Fuji X-T1.

I will be doing a complete write-up on the pros and cons of each system for travel after I return. For now, here are a few water images taken of the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.
