Greetings from the Critique Club:

I think this is both imaginative and effective - especially within a challenge that didn't make it easy to achieve either.

I like the ambiguity of the foreground chips and I really like the darkness of the whole piece - in fact I think that's the key to the whole shot, lose that and it would be much more ordinary.

I have to say though, your image didn't convey notions of space-borne chips but rather like a dim low sun rising above an ocean casting weak and early light onto the crests of waves - the foreground blurry chips forming a blurry foam of surf. That's a lot to convey with a few chips!

Good job.

Lighting could be a bit brighter. Great shallow dof.
