Very interesting lighting. I like the rays from the setting sun and the spot of brighness under the driftwood.

Hmmm...it looks like this was decent shot before you whent hyper on it. I realize this is intentional but personally I don't care for way over processed images. I sure it will score very well here though. Looks like you may have over-sharpened as well. There is a faint white line surrounding hills and the trunk.

Nice sunset, nice clear subject - tough competition due to the high number of sunset shots - 8 really like this one

I believe that this photography would do extremely well had there been some fill flash to light up some more of the beach itself.

Great comp, colours are a bit unnatural (especially the purple water) but overall a very good photo.

Natural colors...(on the water)?

IMO, the bit of light on the backside of the driftwood is what really makes this better than the average silhouette shot. Nice composition!

Nice touch to have the bit of light on stump.
