First I love the image, but I gotta razz you about getting the DPC staple ... a "flower" in the shot. Better than the "lighthouse" attempt.

I love the water caught in motion and the blues are rich and royal. The orange really attracts the eye and the angle of the feet in the photo is aesthetically pleasing. Good sharp focus on the toes. This is the one that has my vote!!! The title is a little odd - since it is both feet, but I like the photo a lot.
