Thank you for your words and for the distinction of picking my picture - It means a lot for me. And yes, it was a difficult shoot, because, as well as the waves, and a couple of tourists, a dog wanted to take the shell.

La caracola by the99

Powerful complementary colors writ large. Terrific execution here with intense colors leading the way in this handsome image. Then the degree of difficulty in getting this image cannot be ignored. Living at an ocean's edge myself, I know how perilous getting a photograph like this can be. At any moment, one of those crashing waves can inundate the photographer, equipment and everything else in its path. Still, this artist managed to capture the beauty and power of this natural setting and then processed it perfectly. The orange conch shell in the foreground, with its deep orange shadow, captured with the last bright rays of the day, is the perfect foil for the strong blue of the water and wave action.
I hope the photographer emerged unscathed from the acquisition of this wonderful exposure. It's an image that could hang in any gallery.

The idea of taking this shell is great, the point of view is ok, just wish the shell was better positioned (rule of thirds). My eyes don't find a place to rest in this picture. A 6 from me
