Darn you Basic Editing! I want to clone out that rock SO BAD. I saw it in the shot, but did not want to get footprints in the pic. I didn't, however, see the knight in the shadows - should have pulled him up into sun - thank you 580EX Flash with Lightsphere II!

We got wet on this one folks, but if you like the shot, it was worth it! :-) I'm just hoping to get above a 6.

Messed around with levels, curves and saturation. Pumped up master sat, but then needed to desat reds, also pumped up yellow sat. Resize, USM, borders...the basics.

I thought this was such a great idea, surprised it didn't reach a 6!

Not quite the 6 you were looking for Mark but a great shot nonetheless. How far exactly did you have to carry this thing? Great setup my friend.

Almost looks fake. That sand is very smooth and looks untouched.
I wish there was a little more light on the front of the castle. The little man should be out of the shadow. 7

Nice idea, colorful. Looks like a real beach - good shot either way. Nice combinations of natural and man-made. Man figure would probably be better out of the shadow, but that's a nit. Love it, and hope that it does well.

That's got to be the smoothest, flattest sand I've ever seen. :)

Awesome! An impressive sensation of depth, good lighting, colourful. It's my favourite in this challenge.
