Hi Andy

Nice and dramatic :)

Perfect...I really don't know what I would change...perhaps making the photo larger by getting a bit more sky in. :)

Maybe a tad under-exposed. I'm not too crazy about the cyan water...maybe you could have fixed that in post-processing. Focus is very nice. :|

Very good eye. The sky compliments the roughness of the see and waves breaking agains the rocks. Nice job :)

A great shot, a dramatic shot. :)

Cheers and good luck in the future challenges.

Nice pink sky. Good color there. The angle and framing/cropping is nice. I like how the cliff comes in from the right and you have left space to the left. Looks like a good job leveling the photo too. Focus and clarity look good, although it's kind of hard to tell beint a silhouetted kind of photo. Great view. Good luck in the challenge.

Perfect timing on this for a beautiful colored sky. It's awesome. Great timeing for the wave also. Might be luck but I'm chosing to believe not. That you waited for the right time in the wave. Beautiful job. Deserves an 8 in my opinion.

Very nice painterly quality, and the panoramic format works well. The colors are nice. I'd like to see a little more detail in the land and sea...just bit. Very nice anyway. :-) Beautiful coloring in the sky.

This is really nice, the clouds are awesome. I wish it was just a bit brighter though.

I think the light is wrong for this shot. This has potential.

This is just a little underexposed. Not much sun for a sunset. The framing is good and I like the perspective - Inspzil

Wish this could have been lightened up a bit without ruining the sky. It also looks like it might have used a little rotation to the left. I love the lighting on the homes on the bluff, the waves and the sky. Maybe a little bit of gamma increase?? It's a very pretty photo, anyway.
