congrats on the HM
Gritty rock in the foreground contrasts well with the soft pastels of the sea and sky.

What a great shot! I was truly inspired by this & when I went there yesterday I kept it in mind. The tide was very high when I went so I didn't have a chance to try this shot but I hope to go back. (I didn't vote on this)

Excellent seascape. Great processing and presentation. It might need one more element of interest. 8

Textures is a great name - there are all sorts of them...nice job.

Very soft light, these morning/evening seascapes. I suspect you didn't need HDR to really make this picture shine. Some moderate fill light or tonemapping would do the trick. Good job! 9

I will have to try the long exposure waterscape at some time. It always gives such a cool look to a pic.

These challenge entries are getting better and better! It's a bit grainy in the bottom left corner and the sky could have some better coloring. But you still got a fav from me as well as an 8/10 hope you win ribbon!
