I think this is absolutely gorgeous. I finally figured out how to set up my favorite photographers so I can look at all of your photos.

I'm about 80 steps behind you in getting this artistic eye for photos, but I'm keepin' on keepin' on. I love it too much to stop. :)

i really like this. i live at the beach, so i can see this on the wall of any number of houses! :) great framing, the tree branch really enhances the shot. the sky is cool and i like the reflection on the water. nice work!

If the reflection wasn't overexposed, this would be a 9 or 10. I like the dark silhouettes, but should have exposed the water correctly. 7

Quite an interesting shot, though I would have loved to have seen it in color. My guess is that you did b&w because the color version was not quite spectacular though. I like the composition as well as the concept. Makes me think of one of those caves that eventually fills up with water at high tide.

This would have been a great shot for contrasts

This is one of my favorites from this challenge - utterly gorgeous, from the silhouette framing to the water itself. A lot of glare here, but it only takes out details at its brightest, and is itself a focus by the way the picture is set - very nice. Love being able to see the wavelets breaking near the bottom of the frame.

Not only you perfectly fit the theme but the picture is absolutely wonderful. I would like to see a color version.

Good job. My personal preference would have been that this one be in color, but I do like the photo.

Like the composition and the color choices. What method did you use to get these tones? Good use of textures between the soft clouds, the active ocean and the dead/inert limb and cave.
With this being grayscale or duotone I would like to see this a little less silver. - 7

I like the composition though the bright reflection on the water seems a bit too birght.

I love the silhouette, and the lighting on the clouds. The irregularity of the framing of the opening helps the bw establish tension, I think.

great view and the sunlight angle is very appealing as well

Great photo! You'll do well in this competition. I wish I lived where you live!

Great shot. Good job on the lighting and good choice going B&W. The clouds, the light shining on the water and the craggy branch hanging down give this lots of drama. 10

Excellent framing. the sky and sea seem blown ou. Did you try darkening the image? Good luck. Jacko. 8

I think a little less contrast with some detail in the dar areas would really make this a teriffic photo. nice shot!!

Nice choice to use B&W. Simply beautiful. 10

Very nice and interresting natural border and the photo looks very good in B&W.

this is washed out for me, and the foreground doesn't seem focused.

Beautiful picture!! I think this is the best picture I've seen in this challenge...second only to mine, of course! :) 10
