4 - Aside from your title and perhaps the wave/water movement, there is little 'action' captured here in my opinion (and my interpretation of the Challenge). However, very nice shot - if the horizon were straight, a more refined crop (although the ropes(?) do give more context so who knows) and bigger (640 width in this case) make this much better. Looks almost like glass.

Great view - I like this take on the challenge.

I like the picture overall but I don't see "action" - no surf spray, no movement - it's quite peaceful. The reflection is good, the color is good - I'd like to see the image size a little larger, but not bad.

This is really a neat photo.

This is a stunningly beautiful photo...I just wish you had made it a bit larger so I could see the detail better. I'm scoring it an 8...if it was larger so I could see more I probably would have gone higher. Excellent composition and colors.

I plan on only voting for the "not your typical" shots this challenge. This is different and I like the reflection and all, just too bad you didn't use all of dpc's real estate. Good luck

Very nice reflection you've captured here! Why the small sizing on the image? Did you look at this with the top cropped off a bit to lose the boat structure in the upper left corner? Good luck, hope this does ok for you.

This scene is lovely but it has a feeling of calm and serenity.
