Simply beautiful!

A little too pretty for me normally but I kept coming back and it finally ended up as one of my top choices. The smoothness of the water, the pink tones, the extreme simplicity of the subject and composition all appeal. Voted earlier.

There are many shots of objects appearing to stare into the oceanic middle distance. This one is quite nice. It would definitely make a nice print.

The best of the crop imo. Just the simplicity and challenge fit make this stand out. VWD. Top5 at least and hopefully a ribbon.
