I appreciate the kind words, but personally I don't think this image is all that great. It lacks a little something, especially in the background. I'm, happy with where it placed, I expected at BEST a top 20 and realistically hoped for top 30, which is what I got. There were a LOT of really nice images in this challenge.

I agree - this should have done way better! A perfect shot imo!

oh my!!!
I can't believe this one scored 30th!! should be much higher! Exposure in beach stones and water is amazing, even more with that difficult lightning condition.

Edit: Slowly going up, one step at a time. You're up to 29th, it doesn't sound that bad now ;)

this image is really pleasing to me. I'd love to be able to consistently produce the landscapes you do. Everyone of them is soothing.

Beautiful shot Robert! Love the angles here--the lines from the sky meeting the lines from the surf.

Nice to see a really high quality landscape in a 'portrait' format. This is a very fine composition; lovely lines & proportions. Beautiful colours and light ... spectacular but not strident.

All things considered, it's an image that is so unpresumptuous at first glance that it might be easy to overlook just how effortless and harmonious it actually is. I hope it isn't overlooked in favour of more flashy models!


I guess it was :-) Though 6.4 and 30th ain't bad... I was definitely conscious of wanting to do a portrait orientationt his time, and I was definitely conscious that I'm getting typecast for technicolor, so I went more muted. I bet if I had brightened this up it would have scored better, but this is a pretty straight rendition of the scene, a relatively rare thing for me. I like to play with colors and saturation on these shots as a rule, it pleases me.

Thanks for all the kind comments people :-)

very nice I really like how the contours of the clouds in the sky follow the coast line. It adds a lot of depth.

Lovely leading lines and I like the 'in focus' stones in the foreground.
