Wonderful image. I might have scored outtake 3 even higher, if it had been 'shopped as finely as this one. Great series!

WHOA! Where ever you took this, well it must be a very important place (V.I.P). This is a great shot of the waves too. Congrats on your first place!

Superb! Well deserving of the (and your first) Blue Ribbon.
Congrats with this one.

Congrats on the blue. I like when photographers post their originals. It is more instructive than anything else and always proves that proper post processing turns an already good image into an award winner. Btw, I like the comet shots in your portfolio.

Wow factor is huge here. Nice capture and stop action. A 9.

I hope your cam didn't get wet :). I like the dynamic in this shot. The title fits well. The birds give some idea of perspective. I just wonder what this is :) 9.

Wow - great capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely shot - perfect title. Those birds are icing on a stormy cake. Great light and a superb perspective on the structure. My only criticism is a lack of breathing space at the top, so I'd have let more sky in - even if it wasn't very stormy looking.

Nice picture, although I think that three out of the four birds visible are distracting, the one in the upper left corner is perfectly placed (7)

Very odd breakwater. I don't think i've ever seen one remotely like it. Like a modern gothic fortress.
