I'm happy your guess (and mine) were completely wrong. Congrats with the red!

I miss the Oregon coast. You've done a magnificent job of capturing one of her more mysterious moods - the mist just slightly obscuring the rocky coast. I especially like the parallelism between the main land and the right main rock. And the solitary couple just adds a presence to the image.

Congratulations on the red! Love this shot. (I used the same method to title my entry.)

One of my two favorites in the challenge. I already like it for the scene, the mist, the depth. But the two figures make it. Great sense of scale. I hate the sensor spot - bet you do, too, by now LOL - and the sky looks blocky but I suppose that's a compression issue. It's still one of my top images and I'm staying with a ten. I think it will score 6.8 and would score higher without that spot. Picky, aren't we?

I like the tiny peeps, the tiny birds. Your guess is my guess. 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 04:55:50 PM
Very nice. I say 6.5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 03:09:13 PM
I think you guessed too low. I'd say 6.5 or better. It's a wonderful scene. Love the silhouettes of the people and birds showing the grand scale. 6.5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 01:39:32 PM
Grand, 6 from me and a prediction of 6.32.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 12:55:38 PM
lovely 6.2
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 09:45:31 AM
Nice image and well composed

I think you are close in your guess. I guess 6.158
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 04:36:01 AM
This is among a relatively small number of images that I think will score well. 6.5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 11:58:50 PM
So unexpected when you spot them. So tiny. 6.4
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 04:57:20 PM
I gave it a eight. Guessing a 6.4.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 10:33:59 AM
Huge underestimate. This will be 7+

In fact - I'd better stick a guess in: 7.42
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 06:35:17 AM
Wonderful view. Nice with birds and people on the foreground. 6.4712
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2015 11:41:43 AM
I gave this an 8. I found this image very moving, especially with the scale of people versus rocks so clear. Plus the faded blues with a hint of fog, really nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2015 09:07:30 AM
Modesty! I would say this will do 6.5 minimum. Beautiful scattered silhouettes of man, beast, earth and sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2015 03:50:48 AM
I like this picture very much - stunning atmosphere and the people in the foreground give a hint of real size - 8 from me, predict 6.4
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 10:59:20 PM
Woah! I just saw the size of people to put it into perspective. This looks Oregon Coasty like.
great shot all around,the light , reflection, sense of scale, all very well done. I think this will end up over 6 and I will vote this at a nine. Good luck here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 09:39:59 PM
I think low-balling your prediction was not a bad idea - at least to appeal to voters. This image has the ingredients of a winner. Foreground, background and all the good stuff in between. The silhouetted characters and birds really give great context for letting the viewer know the scale. The slight cold tint doesn't hurt a bit - love the lines, shadows and tones throughout. prediction: 7.17
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 09:35:40 PM
The teeny little people and even tinier birds create a reference for those monumental rocks. Really good and probably a high 6.67. I'll help with an 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 08:00:40 PM
Beautiful and I believe it will finish higher. My prediction is 6.2.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 07:11:35 PM
A very pessimistic guess, I would think. This is one of my ribbon choices. I have given you ten, but I'll hazard a guess that your score will be 7.735
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 06:57:14 PM
Lovely place, pretty tones, and this kind of scene often does well. Think your score will be higher than your guess, especially since you have people and birds to set the size context, which I think is a bonus. 6.79
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 03:29:14 PM
Having the walkers in the frame makes ALL the difference. Beautiful image. You are way low. Should be 6.75
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 03:12:18 PM
This is truly beautiful. I think you underestimated this one. An 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 02:35:58 PM
nono,,,,ends in 6,1 ++ my guess,,,,but you knew it allso,,,,

I love the scale of this picture.
your guess on score is pretty close, I would say
this landscape looks familiar.
I predict this to be Robert's image, and I predict a 5.8963 score
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 10:55:16 AM
Incredible! You have underestimated this a lot! I estimate a final score of 7.4
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 08:34:49 AM
I really like the toned approach to this one... I'm bumping to a seven and predict 6.0
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 04:50:00 AM
good fore/mid/background split. predict 5.89
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 03:15:30 AM
A very nice image overall. Just a few minor issues, it's a little blown out, and you forgot to straighten the horizon, it's ok I use to do that :0)

I love the two tiny figures really shows a sense of scale, I'm wondering if it would you would of been better off just cropping a quarter of the top off, not sure, anyway I'm bumping this up to a 7. Originally gave you a 5 first off.

I'm guessing your score will be a little higher than your guess maybe 5.966.

02/04/2015 11:40:20 PM
Wow, perspective is great on this image with the people. Most don't realize how mammoth the offshore rock formations can be... 6.2
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 09:25:10 PM
I will match your vote at a 5.88 and voted a five
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 08:38:10 PM
this one feels like a 6.5 to me, simply because of the people and the birds. What a surprise on scale! The only thing that I wonder is: is the horizon tilted a bit?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 07:48:04 PM
Don't me modest... 5.8557? I don't think you can ribbon with 6- less score :p

Probably my fav, but I'm still voting, so for now I can say a 9 from me and 6.80 from DPC crowd.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 07:01:20 PM
6.621 (I gave it an eight)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 05:37:43 PM
I voted before looking at titles, now commenting.

I think you are selling yourself short with that prediction, especially with the people and birds rounding out the image. I gave you a 7.

My guess: 6.34
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 11:01:20 AM
Lovely scene. I predict 5.8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 07:32:32 PM
The tones in this are beautiful, with the darker elements drawing my eye nicely throughout the frame. Lovely. 6.36
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 07:29:44 PM
it was .(erased as per challenge rules) from me
love the similarity between men and birds

My guess 6.3
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 06:26:23 PM
The first time around I had this in as a 6 then I noticed the people and bumped it to a seven. I like the scale of this. It looks so massive.
Nice!!!
Back to post my guess. 6.22
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 05:35:23 PM
I think you are right on the button with this nice moody landscape every thing is together with it so I think6.357
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 05:13:17 PM
I like this more than you do.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 02:22:16 PM
Hello, I voted a few days ago, now returning for comments. I think that you really under estimated your score, this is my favorite in this Challenge and I gave you a ten. I predict that you will finish a full point above your prediction at 6.8557 and it should be a ribbon contender.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 01:24:52 PM
Very nice. My second fav. I would have liked to see it straightened with the horizon just to see what it looks like. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 12:44:27 PM
Amazing shot although it misses some power in the background. I guess the same as you 5.8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2015 10:34:32 PM
This is a very nice. My top 3. for me 8

Gorgeous scene. I hope this does better than you anticipated.

7.4 Serene land/seascape. The muted grays, blues and blacks (can black be muted?) beautifully contribute to this feeling. The composition and the procession of planes lending depth are well-handled. I especially like how the aforementioned procession goes from small in the foreground to huge in the background (not counting the sky) -- birds, people, smaller rocks, larger rocks, and jutting headland.
.1 subtracted for sensor dust relic in the sky.

Ridiculously humble or exceptionally bad at estimating how this would do. Cool tones, glimmering contrast, a story with two characters in the Pacific Northwest mist (I believe). Excellent stuff.
