wow, thanks so much Don. I didn't expect that. i need to spend more time at the beach with my iPhone.

thanks for all of the generous comments.
there was no sepia conversion or sharpening in camera (or out, of course). I used the native iPhone camera app with no adjustments. the image is strongly back lit so the color is burned out. I like Henry's suggestion to try this in black and white.

Beautifully fantastic. Not enough superlatives for this.

we don't know what to say. the darkness and colour in the figure and the dynamics of her posture contrasts so well with the subtle shades of the background, even the casual scattering of walking birds... a wine with subtlety and unexpected character.

Had I voted it would be a 12. And now that I see it is an iphone I want to cry.

Perfect exposure, the blacks give this a Minimalistic minimal feel. Congratulations on the two blues, that will be hard to beat!

Far and away the best in show. Glad to see I wasn't the only one who thought so!

Great "decisive moment" shot and beautiful tonality especially for an unedited shot.

I love the leading line of the stick through her body and on to the birds! Might have worked even better if you'd flipped this horizontally so the eye flows more easily Left to Right as we are inclined to view images... and their lines.

Great choice to do this in BW.

I really enjoy this image.

Good tones and composition, but the sepia conversion (presumably in-camera?) has left some splotchy artefacts in the hills and seems to have lost detail around the water. You also have some undesirabe sharpening halos, especially noticeable around the outline of the stick.

Beautiful! Makes me wonder if those birds flew off in a few seconds, would love to see that (but not at the expense of the motion of the girl running, her pose is perfect). Great photo!

It definitely tells a story. Ribbon contender

Gorgeous.

Lovely composition and moment. The subtle color doesn't detract but I'd prefer b&w. Very nice!

This is a really lovely shot. That kid is just about to whack those birds isn't he? I hope not. My top pick.

This is a wonderful shot for minimal, here again this one depicts emotion, beautifully composed and the desat is perfect. For this I give you a 10.
