I think I may be in the minority here. While the photo is lovely, technically well done, and I do think that it gives a sense of even, I'm not particularily drawn into the photo. There really isn't anything drawing me in and holding me there.
Focus and clarity appear really great. Nice details in both the sky and the ground.
The little bush adds something to the shot that makes this a little more than just another seascape shot.
I like the contrast. Nice whites, and nice darks.
The one suggestion I could make would be to straighten up the horizon line which appears to have a slight lean to the right.
Otherwise, you did a very good job with this photo, congrats on your placing.

Snow with a subdued sky to add a contrasting element of wonder. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

Absolutely gorgeous shot! The slightly tilted horizon is the only distracting aspect for me. Outstanding job.

Great shot. The right down the center horizon works very well in his photo. I like ominous sky.

love this pic i think it should be #1 in this contest!

Fab. I like it very much, nice sharp contrast. I suggest that you capitalize all three words of your title. Also, I think the picture would be better with no frame. SEVEN

I like this, but not for this challenge! But will still rate it fairly high because of the idea, and the photography.

Beautiful B&W, and I love the concept!

Love the dark, forlorn, empty feel of this. Just enough light reflection to give it the feel that there is hope. Very nicely done. Hope to see it in the top three. "9"

Striking contrast of spaces. Perhaps also suitable for "odd", since we normally see the ground as the darker field.

Wonderful landscape... I really like the monochromatic feel.

Good one. The placement of the horizon on the center of the photo definitely creates a sense of balance and "evenness".

This is a wonderful image..the sky and sea are evenly divided and equally interesting..well composed and beautifully executed.

very attractive

You know, it takes a great photographer to see the beauty in such a very un-remarkable scene. I hope not too many people pass this by without looking at this.

One of my top 20 this week.

Wow very cool shot!
11/23/2005 09:43:37 AM
Very nice. Great texture, depth and mood. Only nitpick is the horizon possibly dips to the right. doesn;t change my socre though. Well done.

WOW. This is fabulous. The texture in the foreground against the smooth sky I love the contrast of the black and white. LOVELY
