This is an oil platform off of Huntington Beach with Catalina Island in the background. I wish that I could have cloned out that annoying orange spot on the second wave!

Orange dot in the middle of the water detracts from an otherwise stunning Photo that has incredible texture and tones.

appears to be oversharpened.

Very nice backlighting yet softer would have made it better. Impressive enough for a bump.

Are those ripples from waves or crusted over lava? Great effect! Only thing is the platform is nothing more than a silhouette. Too bad.

Nice capture of the light almost gone. You did well to show the coming darkness without losing the highlights on the water. The border fits the shot well.

This is an incredible photo. Sure the oil platform is silhouetted... but, I feel like the waves are the subject anyway, and those are what really draw me into this photo.

Darn that one glare spot - a little advanced editing and it's gone. Very nice shot. I especially like how the water almost looks like oil.

"The subject must not become a silhouette because of the backlighting."

Lovely colours, but I think you missed the challenge description:

"the subject must not become a silhouette because of the backlighting".

not sure if this is true to the challenge although it's a niceshot

Sorry to be picky but if the oil platform is the object that is backlit, it looks like a silhouette which I didnt think was allowed

Looks a little to USM to me. Just my 2 cents

Nice image except for the flare, and it looks grossly overprocessed. I think you over did it majorly with the sharpening. Luckily you can correct that if you decide to pring the image or display it elsewhere.

feels way oversharpened, but I know how tough it is to get that water looking right.

Great capture. The layers and colors in this shot make it very appealing

This feels a bit oversharpened to me, but the composition and content are great.
