I dug this photo bigtime. Nice work. Maybe top 3, but tough competition.

I really like this perspective, but I find myself looking for the missing horizon.

Amazing wide angle shot! This is one of my favorites by far. Excellent color of the water and rocks. What would make this picture even better still would be some sky and clouds ALL in focus to really give a feeling of depth. But as it is, I would not change a thing. 10

wonderful view - but oh for a more interesting moment of light! More shading on those rock faces would have added no end of drama to this shot - as it is, it's at best weakly illustrative. More light and shade would add spectacle, where this is really quite flat seeming.

In pure challenge terms, some foreground is needed to really emphasise dof, though of course in a sense of simple distance everything here is sharp. It's not bad work, but the light, the light ... 5

beautiful. I wonder how this would look with a hint of blue sky in the background?

Beautiful shot, a more prominent foreground element would have increased the depth even more. 8
