I actually think the version of this picture that you have on your website is much better. In that version with the looser crop, I get a much greater sense of depth and space. Bringing the bright rays of sun further down into the composition helps keep the visual interest well away from the edge, with is a problem with the one you entered for the challenge.

The one you entered here is cool, but the one on your website is amazing.

Hey apostle i don't know if you have access to photoshop cs 8.0 but if you do you should use the shadow highlight key function is balancing your image. put out more details in your highlights and your shadows.

This shot is masterful and should have ribboned.

Wow, that's beatiful. It almost looks surreal. You should sell print for this! :D

Wow. I love the close up of the 12 Apostles! This was one of my favorite photos in the challenge. I was looking forward to finding out where it was taken. Going in my favorites.

Thanks again for all voters :D
I actually got a lot more silhouette from this place but I wasn't so sure which one is the best. I've chosen this one and 5th place is good enough I reckon...

Thanks all!

Wow, I didn't get to vote on this shot, but if I did I would have given it a 10 for sure. Lovely image. I would hang this on my wall!

Great use of silhouettes and lighting to really play the unusual rock formations in the picture. The clouds add a lot of drama, making this very eye-catching. Beautiful shot. 9

too dark, I'm only seeing 4 of the 12 apostles.
04/25/2004 12:06:56 PM
This is one of the greatest pics ! You achieved to keep details even in the shadow... This is a 10 for me !

Great place, perfect time of day to take this shot, and you got a fair bit of cooperation from the sky. "Good on you"! -8

Very nice shot. Fits the challenge well. Great sky. Well composed, even though I normally don't like the horizon in the middle of a shot. My only criticism is that the colours seem a little dull and look like they need enhancing in Photoshop a little.

A tighter crop on the left and bottom would create a much more stunning image, in my opinion.

Good photo.

Best shot of the challenge in my opinion. Would like to have seen the sun lower in the sky perhaps, and may more hidden behind the clouds. The size and overexposed-ness of the sun is juuuuust a little distracting in my opinion.... despite that you have a great shot here..... I gave you a 9 initially but I think it is really worthy of a 10. good luck, Todd. 10.

Ah, one of our Australians checking in with a lovely image. Some one of these days, when I get back down your way, I"m going to try for this one too! Meanwhile, you've done an excellent job and I wish you well in the Challenge. 8

This is a gorgeous land/seascape. I think I have seen photos of this before but I can't be sure. I'm thinking it's somewhere in Australia maybe?

At any rate, the mood of the sky is phenomenal... great work :)

Very nicely captured. I like the wave line, the composition, the light and the silhouette of the rocks.

Waterline is very nice. Colors really pop. The title does nothing for me at all.
