At first I thought this was a wave in the sea... but upon closer inspection, I guess it's the sky. Interesting how the two can sometimes look so similar.

(Critique Club!)

Posthumous, I've been away for over a year and you haven't changed - still knocking out images which are visually striking and yet don't seem to attract the scores. I guess the voters haven't changed either...

All my usual comments on technical stuff are irrelevant - I think I can see where you wanted to go with this and you have nailed it. Artistically? The contrast, the balance of light and dark in the composition, the positioning of the 'eye' area is all spot on. Criticism? "I got nuthin'" - sorry. Love it.

I'd print this A1 sized and hang it on my wall.

Rather precarious light, being swallowed up effortlessly.

I gave you a 7. because of the darkness. or maybe the light.
