When I left the house, I had this exact photo in mind. I had previously shot for Cityscape and had moved on. It was toward the end of the day, sun low in the sky. I doubt it will score well but not for not meeting the challenge.

I like the red left in, it made me think this was an alien monster, or perhaps a long lost sea creature walking around eating beach bums.. had to come back and find it, couldnít believe it was so far off the front page! I award it win many Katie Kudos!!!!!!

Neatly surreal. An abstract "It Came from Beneath the Sea". Normally don't like partial desat at all. But there's a clearly discernable esthetic reason for it here.

Nice image but I think it would have been really nice without the red.
