Thuis was great- the contrast was fantastic- don't listen to anyone else- this is top notch. If there is any room to improve it would be in the area of composition. But thats a hell of a poster shot.

Very nice image, but I find that the contrast is a little too harsh. Beautiful sky.

Australian photos need to show the massive sky, well done.

Love the colors and composition. Astounding scene. Sky might be a tiny bit overworked for my taste.

great sky, great clouds, and nice use of a wide angle lens. I love the bit of reflection in the water. A serene, well balanced landscape. This one kept me looking for a good bit.

While I realize the horizon is level, this has a sense of being tilted clockwise just a little bit. This frequently happens with this sort of shot, and it's disconterting. It has also been oversharpened, to my eye, or if this is how it came from the camera it could use a tad of softening. A very nice image regardless.

Great composition and detail captured here. Good use of diagnonals in a shot. ((8))

Interesting contrast, especially in the sky.
I like it how the foreground shoreline leads to the cloud formations and that it has some bird at the end. Would work better in a larger size like 800 to 1024 wide I think. The light on the sand is also interesting with that small stripe of gold. The ripples in the water add some interest there. Good composition.

I really like this picture. Great color and contrast. I think it wins a ribbon.

Beautiful, I feel that I could reach out and touch the clouds, I love your use of a polarizer here, this would be beautiful in B&W also. Your colors, composition and details are perfect. 10

Really beautiful sky and overall colors!

This looks like the lighting might be a bit of dodging and burning via Photoshop. Nevertheless, I love it. Great job! Good luck in the challenge!

Look at that sky... I just love the colors and the contrast between the blue of the water and sky and the brown/tan of the land.

Awesome sky!

Absolutely georgous! The sky is incredible, and the "line out" of the sand bar is very well done

The sky is gorgeous but the clouds seem unreal...

Nicely composed photo. Very pretty.... but, to good to be true. (I think this might be a bit over-enhanced.... IMO.)

My opinion: too much unsharp mask in photoshop, but the combination is great.

A very beautiful photo. Lots of vibrant colors, clarity and contrast. well done. This would make an excellent poster or calender shot. <8>

Really? Sky looks like Iceland's (just kidding). Nice composition but I think the sky is just a bit overdone. 7.

overly processed. 2

Those clouds are awesome and I like the possitioning of the sand spit in the frame.

Nice landscape. A like the variety of blue in the sky and the clouds.

Awesome! Great composition. One of my favs.

For me, this is just a *little* over-burned.. or over-darkened.. It's got a presence, for sure, but not an appealing one.. kind of like a view of another planet in a way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2005 04:12:23 AM
Fantastic sky. One of the better sky's I've ever seen on a landscape shot actually. The land part is a little disappointing in comparison, but its still really nice.

Clouds are killer. They definitely make the shot. It's a bit static for my tastes, though... having a person walking along the shoreline would have helped a lot. a 7
