This is definitely the best image of the challenge, or one of them at least, never would think it was tone mapped, breathtaking image!

Not sure how this didn't win. This is far and away better than the blue ribbon winner IMHO.

Gorgeous image in every way, my favourite in the challenge. If it were mine, I'd have a huge print of it hanging on my wall. Many congrats on your HM, Randall.

I love those ripples in the sand that catch the light so well, and the bits of driftwood that invite exploration, and maybe some imagining of pirate ships and deserted beaches.

WOW! One of the coolest things I've seen on DPC. So otherworldly, and amazing processing. 10 and fav.

Very moody. Tremendous light/shadow/depth.

Nice, but a little too much of an HDR effect. Nice composition and colors. I'm sure it'll be in the top 10. 8

Very nice, great colours and textures. The whole thing has a slightly unearthly feel about it.

Like how the foot prints lead the viewer down the beach. Nice neutral tones on the beach, with the nice orange glow of the sun in the horizon.

Nice use of HDR, not overly done. Well done, very surreal.

Fascinating! I feel like I'm there. This is very well done in all areas. (not voting)

Great work on composition. There seems to be a lack of contrast overall. I dont know if it is just my monitor.
