I dunno, I kinda find that big white scrape in the foreground a bit too dominant and distracting...maybe try cropping in a row? Absolutely brilliant shot though. I want to be there...atleast the way you captured it. One of those wonderful photos that you can almost feel and hear.

wow - great shot - the composition couldn't be better IMO:) Love the natural coloring and the blue of the water - looks like you took this at the perfect time of day. Excellent job an definately meets challenge. very high score:)

Too symmetrical for my taste. The quality of the light doesn't seem to do much for the shot. 5

Very pleasing and strong perspective shot with wave and white-caps breaking up the static of the dominant structure. The two (flanking) effective arches in the foreground provide a nice counter balance to the rectangular theme.

I question the DOF chosen for this shot. While it works well to bring out the textures of the foremost columns, I regret not being able to enjoy the breakers in their full and crisp glory. A larger or more deliberately choice, IMO, could highlight the spray or help distinguish the sky from the horizon.

Despite this, it remains one of my favourite shots in this challenge.

beautiful shot. i like the contast of the blue ocean and brown pier. i wonder what some off-angle shots would have looked like.

I try to forget my bias for "beach photos" when I vote, but I think this is a great photo! Perfect framing, and I love the great diagonal shadowing and the action of the water at the end. May have tried to brighten this a bit, and saturated a touch, but overall I really like it. Congratulations!

Great shot. Cropping or framing it so that the first two pillars on the left and right weren't showing might have been effective as well.

This piece is very interesting. The columns in the pier leads your eyes straight back and you get a nice wave coming in. It's like a feast for the eyes. The blues in the sky also help . Some beautiful shadows and reflections on the pier columns.

Excellent picture.

Good repeating pattern. Might be better at a different time of day with maybe more interesting sky from sunrise/set ?

Nifty. The white lines steal the attention though, a faster shutter sped would have caught the waves better, and it's a little pixelated.

this is, for me, a lovely shot - I keep coming back to it and it could hang on my wall anytime. It's very satisfying.
