My frist real attempt at long exposure of the ocean. No oceans around Denver. Glad you all liked it. I was riding a high wave all week. This was one of two sunsets we could actually see while on vacation in Maui. The rest of the sunsets could not be seen due to heavy clouds. Glad I was able to get this shot done.

Thanks for all the great comments and votes! This was another PB until about an hour ago. Then the score sunk like the sun. (:

Very well composed giving the water a sense of movement as the sun peeks in. Very well executed.

Lovely shot. Love everything. The clouds, the sky, the water, the rocks... it's gorgeous. Well done

Well done. Likely ribbon. Nice environment in which to shoot. There's a nice play on rocks vs. clouds for contrast.

An 8 from me.

THANK YOU for not over doing this.

It's so lovely.

One of my favorites. Will definitely be on the front page. Good texture, detail, composition, subject and gradation. My only gripe is the one bright spot in the foreground could have been toned down just one notch.

Love how the sky emulates the ground. One of my favorites... though it's unfair for you to have access to such a wonderful place!!

Love that horizon line placement choice. Easily the most accomplished image in this challenge. The sky is just right. The ocean is super interesting. I expect this to ribbon. Great job! 9
