I literally submitted this with 2 seconds to spare. I'm tickled it ribboned, but I was wondering if it would even score 6.0. I think it may reflect people's enjoyment of "photorealistic" HDR.

I manually blended two exposures to come up with the final.

Nice, I would have preferred the figure to be a little larger though.

Mind blowing. I am biased

Excellent DOF that has a three dimensional quality. Lovely muted colors as well but lacks the wow factor to be up in contention.

Great title. Great picture. Sharp and clear, strong composition, great tones and colors.

Nice dramatic sky. Position of the person on the beach finishes this one nicely.

Nicely done. It doesn't have the typical HDR feel to it. This is quite striking. SO peaceful.

MARVELLOUS shot !! Wonderful use of HDR to create a unique shot which tells a "menacing" story especially with that dark ominous cloud. 8
