|*Greetings from the Critique Club*
I didn't get a chance to vote in this challenge, so the image was new to me. I spent several minutes looking at and thinking about the image before starting to comment. Then I had a work meeting. And then I started looking again and noticed your comment about the image being made from sand. Awesome. I think pure genius. I was enjoying the view, and seeing a fish, and then a woman, and I was looking for more. I did observe that the image appeared a tiny bit 'gritty', but I was so lost in the wonder of the 'clouds' that I had no idea I was not looking at the sky. Well done, well done.
Photographically, I like the colors and the wispy areas that allow one's imagination to wander. But the image does not have strong shapes, and does not have a lot of depth or contrasts. It appears many voters in this challenge idealized a more traditional and shiny image with a skyline from some city with the wildly vivid sky. To me your image is almost a storytelling image, there could be great meaning to the person who took it, but without the viewer understanding that story, this image perhaps seems a bit incomplete. There were however, a few voters who enjoyed your interpretation of skyscape.
(And even after spending nearly 15 minutes with this image, I still see the sky.)
