Underneath the Santa Monica Pier. I don't expect this to necessarily do very well, but hope it won't get punished for the silhouetted wood, slight messiness in the waves at the bottom-left corner, or blown out highlights.

** Greetings from the Critique Club **

An excellent use of natural light. The softness of the light works well with the soft focus applied here. It was a little hard to pick up on the water at first though.

Congrats on your top 10 finish.

WOW! I love this - sorry, that's all the feedback you're getting. Can't think of a thing I would change, maybe crop some more black off the top and bottom? I know, lame - you've done a great job. Just excellent

I almost used a pier for my entry.... After I saw this I'm glad I didn't What I had in mind wouldn't even come close to capturing the beauty of this image. I'm only afraid voters from non-coastal areas will have a difficult time make the wooden correlation. -10

Really neat use of light and shadow. Might have been neat to try it so that the sun could be seen and create a lens flare. Overall, great shot!

Beautiful...I made a shot close to this the other day ... in the woods. The sun's rays make this shot even better. I hope this one scores well.
