The mix of rough and smooth textures stopped me in my tracks.

Converted from raw.
SEP2 set to luminosity

@Marion: Yes, the white bits in the top left corner distress me as well. I gave the image a pretty heavy vignette to reduce them, but I've had very bad luck with cloning stuff out in the past :-)

Rather like this, like the cool feeling of grass or sand between the toes.

I love this image Johanna. It deserved a top 10... at least!

I didn't have time to bump to 8's, 9's and 10's but this got one of my few 7's. I do agree with 21_F.gif jomari and I would at least have colored them quite dark - as well as the small cluster of white stones against the frame right side just above the midpoint. Wonderful picture though and not just for the challenge

That's a really pleasing shot, marred just a little by the white bits intruding into the top left corner. I wonder if the rules would have allowed you to clone them out? 8

I love this image, the processing, colours etc, I just wish it was cropped a bit more
