Oooh... good one! It looks like a giant wave crashing onto the shore.

This is incredible. I hate landscapes but I would sell my mother for this. Why this is so good is completely mysterious to me, and I like it that way.

Wow. Very impressive, love the light and the drama. The tones are excellent though I wish I could see just a little more detail and separation in the darker hills. 9.

Lovely textures both in the sky and on the ground. I think the B&W was a great choice, but I'd love to see the colour, just out of curiosity.

Wow. Simply breathtaking image. I love the contrast and texture here. You can just see the ripples in the sand. The shadows are not so black that you lose detail, and the highlights are not blown out. Very dramatic sky. A classic black and white image, and I say that as a very high compliment. 10

It´s a very nice shot, but I can´t help but wonder if it would have been awesome in colour, with a rich blue colour to the sky and a light brown tone to the sand.

I've never seen anything like that. It's so striking and beautiful!

Holy Crap! That looked like a giant wave. It took my eyes a minute to adjust to realize it was clouds. Could be the booze, I dont know. :P

Simply awesome. This scene lends itself perfectly to black and white. The balance of light and dark is perfect. Wonderful image.

Very impressive landscape which really suits the b/w format.
This would look amazing up on the wall in a large frame.

Otherworldly! I love the contrast of textures--the rough sky with the smooth sands. Dramatic lighting creates an intense mood. Though the black and white has its own beauty, I feel like I want to see the color in the sky. Still, well done.

Wow. A tremendous shot! Need a little more from the gray scale, but wonderfully done. 8

Terrific figure/ground ambiguity gives an air of mystery to this fine B/W image.

Those clouds are nuts. I wish I could see the color version... I think it might have helped to see the sky in color.

Stunning tones. Great landscape and the sky certainly cooperated. 10.
