Not too confident about this one.
I really wanted to shoot for this challenge. But for most of the week the weather was awful or I frustratingly had to watch a decent sunset from my office window where I had to stay working.
So on this evening I rushed home from work, grabbed my gear, and ran to stand on a hilltop getting soaked in wind and freezing rain- hoping for some drama. It started to snow, and by the time I shot this I could no longer feel my hands.
So even though this isn't all I hoped for, I'm posting it after all the suffering I went through to get it :P

The timing with the vessel in the suns reflection was perfect Brent. Beautiful shot, I also thought it would have ended much higher, but awesome work nonetheless.

Nice wide shot. Like the clouds and the appearance of rain. Well done.

This is great without looking like it's trying too hard. It's a nice perspective. There's something about the foreground cloudy haze that warms the image up. I feel that if those weren't there it could be just a ho-hum picture. Well, if that and the great lighting weren't there...

Love the overall feel of this. Very moody. The sky atmosphere really works with the oceanscape.

That barge adds an unexpected place for us to rest our eyes. Very nice.

This is my pick for the blue ribbon. It's a great scene with the rain shafts filtering the sun. And, the ship and harbor are great elements of interest. Great tonal range and superb composition. 10
