I took this picture on a rainy, chilly, windy day on Blackpool beach.

The grainyness i the sky on the right hand side is actually a flock of birds.

wonderful in every way--tone, composition, light, mood. Sepia is controlled well, here--just right for the mood, but not too much so that the image still communicates the cold at the scene.

Thank you very much - that means a lot!

I'm just happy that a small amount of people found it as beautiful as I did.

I appreciate all of the comments - thank you!

A little grainy but a nice concept.

On my monitor this images is weirdly stretched out. I don't know if that was intentional, but the distortion really wrecks an otherwise great shot. Where is this?

a very intriguing image with a lot of appeal. I like the concept for the challenge and the sepia tones work well for this image which adds the nostalgic feel.

This is gorgeous. I love the sepia treatment, and I'm not always crazy for sepia. I'd suggest perhaps not putting the horizon in the center of the frame, but I'm not sure I'd like more or less of the sand in the foreground. Perfect for the challenge too.

Nice concept. I think if the couple had been sillouted ( is that how you spell it? ) against the white sky it would be far far better, as it stands your eye does not go straight to them.

A little soft and the sky looks a little grainy, but it's still pleasing.
