Happy with a top ten in a free study. The first version I did of this had an overlay which made it look even more like a painting. I had to de-tune it for DPC ;)

Love the painting feel of the top half, but the bottom doesn't have the same interest for me. I'd crop this and make it more of a panorama feel.

excellent rendering - the richness of the tones really makes the shot - and i just love the gulls around the light

Great image, good focus and perspective. I could be wrong, but the horizon seems ever so slightly slanted to the right.

Good luck in the challenge.

This looks like a Bear image.

I'm loving the foreground.

I find the lack of depth to this somewhat disconcerting. Although you have used a small aperture and there is clearly a very deep depth of field, your choice of processing has flattened the image to a point that my brain struggles to accept is a photo rather than a painting. That said, I don't dislike it, but I feel I would prefer just a lighter touch on the tone-mapping to retain a little more of a photographic feel. All entirely subjective, and others may love it just as is.

Penmon Point, remember that place well. Vignetting works, but overall processing seems a bit harsh

Another muddy tonemapped image? Either my monitor broke tonight, or this is becoming a worrying trend.

Your whites are all too dark, grab that levels tool and bring those whites out!
