Fighting erosion from the ocean, this rock stands tall in its way at a place named "Sunset Cliffs" that,as you can see, lives up to its name as much as any I have ever seen.

What a wild sky! I would have cropped some of the image to he left of the rock and shown more of what is to the right of it.

Excellent composition and detail but the rock in the middle maybe should be further left after cropping?

Odd colour split fiery orange to the right and cool blue to the left of the outcrop. Unusual and refreshing seascape.

I wonder what a little contrast would do to this. Not bad but as if a little dull? Great scene though 6

Lovely sky! A little soft and I can see some sensor dust.

Beautiful sky colors and what a lovely location. Needs a little more sharpening and cropping it from the left would have made this photograph really strong in composition!

This is beautiful, the composition is great! I love the foreground elements
that lead you throughout the frame. I like the transitioning of the sky from the sunset/sunrise color to the normal subtile blues on the left it is so dramatic. I also realy like the transition of the color reflecting in the water on the one side of the monolith to not on the other side. It really gives a feeling of peacefulness.

The detail on the monolith is nice. Is this HDR perhaps as I believe there is moredetail within the shadows for the positioning of the sun. Either way. Wonderful job.

I expect to see this in the Top 10 at the end of the challenge.
