Because he'd pulled an all-nighter, I chauffeured my sweetie to a meeting he had in San Diego, taking advantage of the trip to call my buddy, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' LevT. He recommended a couple of places for me to go shooting while sweetie had his meeting, and agreed to meet up for dinner in the evening. Thank you, Lev!!!!

I decided on Sunset Cliffs which turned out to be truly spectacular, but most decidedly not what comes to mind when you hear "beach". I had originally entered something much less "beachy" but chickened out for this image, which is still not quite "beach", but more so than the other. I love the moodiness here (emphasizes a bit with pp'g). This was at the end of the day, heading back to my car. The owner was nowhere in sight.

I spent the last week at a lake cottage with no internet access, so I did not get a chance to look through these. I love this shot -- such nice, rich warm tones (pp enhanced or not). Congrats on the top ten and a lovely image. Now I am curious to see your first choice that you chickened out on.

I like the use of vignette to add a little drama to the photo. Looks like a great place to go bike riding.

It's good you found one with a slightly lower POV to get the separation. And the shadow's fabulous. Commenting only.
