Well, I was at the beach when this challenge was posted so it wasnt taken to specifically meet it. If I were given a choice there was another one I would rather submit but its out of the time frame. I doubt this will do spectacularly but what the hell...

I can see the cloud ship, no problem. I agree with the previous comment that a bit more beach would have grounded it better for the challenge, but it's a fun shot and well done.

I wish I could see just a little more of the beach

Great job! One of the prettiest clouds that I've seen in this challenge, and you did great to capitalize on it. Colors are intense, and has no flat feel to this photo. Upping original score from a 4 to a 6.

8 great perspectivve

Don't know if it was possible or not, but I'd like to see a little more beach at the bottom of the photo. But then you may lose the top of the cloud. But still a beautiful image!

I love this, although fascinating - clouds don't always hold their own on DPC but I think you've captured a great story here with the help of your title. If cropping allowed, I'd like to see the sand line all the way across the bottom though.

Great sky. Wish there was a little more beach showing. Rule of thirds would have enhnaced this photo.

Wow, really looks like a ship! Nice photo!

Shame the horizon isn't straight, as this is a good image....
07/20/2006 12:24:01 AM
Whoa...that looks really weird...I like it!

9 :) wonderful.

I'd like to see more of the shore. Also, your horizon is slightly tilted, that's distracting to me.

Beatiful cloud and great colors though I would prefer to see more sand

I find myself wanting to see a little more of the beach on the bottom of the photo -- I feel like my eye drops off as a result of it missing.

I'm a cloud fan.
