YES! You Rock! The warm sun in the foreground with the cooler distance really creates an emotional depth as well. THis looks similar to the other perspective but this is somewhere else right?
Mentor Headlands?

Beautiful shot. I love the textures in the sand and smoothness of the water. The building offers an excellent focal point with some color. However, I feel like the clouds are a bit over processed but I like the stormy look just maybe a bit less.

Oooooooh.......aaaaaah!!! Beautiful!! What a great sky, great light, great subject matter.

Excellent deep DOF. Super lighting... even and pleasant throughout. Great lighting on the far structure. Good sharpness and detail. I hate the frame, because it reduces the viewable portion of the image. I have no idea why you would add a frame. This image could win the challenge, except for the big distraction of the frame. 9
