That is, if you use your imagination (you're looking at the top of the giant's head, looking down the body. the nose is gone, but his mouth is still visible, and his right hand laid on his chest). While this looks sort-of like a sea scape with a rocky shore, it is a macro close-up of a rock wall at my place of work, looking up at the ceiling. The rock is petrified wood, which gives it its interesting coloration. I region selected the ceiling and darkened it a bit. What looks like the surf line is actually the trim. I also cloned some color and texture onto the face of a rock that was blown out.

Needs to be cropped to get rid of the out of focus foreground.

Great texture on this. Looks like you caught the magic light. Cropping seems a little too centered, otherwise I like it.

Lovely shot! Very "serene" in its harshness. It's a wonderful interpretation! I like the non-literal interpretations and did one myself in this challenge, though it's not doing well. 7 from me
