Wow - for once going with my gut actually worked out for me. With 500 other images to contend with, I never imagined I would ribbon with this one! Once the score dropped to around 7.2 I figured I would be lucky to hit top ten - there were so many great images in this challenge I am truly honored to find myself on the podium :~)

Here are just a few of my alternate choices this month (obviously it was a month of seascape studies):

Your decision for doing a black and white landscape was smart, and I'm glad that you were rewarded for it.

Let me add: (smart)... and daring.

Very interesting location. Almost too much going on in the picture. It seems a bit busy with all of the interesting parts kind of fighting for attention. Probably works well as a big print. 7
