I wanted people in this image, but blurry people and textured sand just would not happen for me when the folks were still milling about. Thanks for the comments and votes.

Congrats on the yellow ribbon. I really thought you had the blue one coming to you though. Very nice shot.

I bet you taped some flashes to those poles and triggered them remotely! And echoing what bassbone said, it's not blurry/ghostly enough. :-p congrats on 3rd!

Well done!

I like the rise and fall of the sand, an echo of the time-smoothed waves beyond.

I really like the deep texture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great texture and detail in the sand. Very strong foreground. Excellent close/middle/far layers. Awesome tones. Just all around great photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of my two fav of the whole group! VERY cool - I think the black and white makes the shot... were the colors skewed from it being a longer exposure?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2011 11:01:19 AM
really like the grainy foreground against the smoother background...excellent job

A stunning shot, but doesn't look like day to me, which is what I interpreted the challenge to be!

Great image. Sharp and definitely shows that it is night time.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2011 11:21:38 PM
I love the stillness of this shot... Great image and the fact that the sand is razor sharp only adds to it... Well done! 8

Nice photo. I would love to see this in color.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2011 07:39:41 AM
I like the inclusion of foreground material. This could have been just another standard pier shot, but the foreground helps liven it up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2011 06:06:26 AM
Lovely B&W, i like the contrast between the ruffed up sand & the smoothness of the ocean.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2011 01:28:14 AM
Superb b&w conversion. Magical light. The scene looks almost day-like. My top pick in this challenge, based on technical excellence and composition.
