Interesting shot. Nice work!

This is a fun abstract. I'm generally a fan of narrow DOF and I like the detail of the rocks in the focused range. In this case the impact may have been stronger to maximize the DOF and let everything really pop out. JMO of course. Good luck.

Now this is a cool shot!!! Excellent choice for the challenge.

An optical illusion abstract. Very nifty. When I focus on one rock some others appear to be floating. Technically very well done and creative. (no vote)
