Thank you for all the good comments. Apologies about the sensor dust/eyesore. Here is an edited version:

Great job! I loved this. The clarity in the water, the perspective, the colors, the illusion of distance, the movement of the water, the grandeur of the sky, the rays of light. It all works together and makes this one of my top 3 in this challenge.

not sure what the orange thing actually is. don't get the title. the sand in the foreground is cool. would like to see the depth of field greater.

I love the composition and how the sea is out of focus.

Great perspective.

I'm a huge fan of the idea, the composition and the colours, but the noise in the upper half of the photo, in the water and sky really distract for me. It also looks as though you've a bit of dust on your lens or sensor.

Nice use of DOP...this rocks! Great composition! Love the sun beams!

Yes, you found just about everything in this image. Good one. (er, wish that shell was off to one side or the other...) 7

Spot on lense or bird? It's cool anyway...I like it!

Absolutely AWESOME shot!!! The DOF is perfect, the colors are rich and bright, the sky is great, and the crepuscular rays add even more to the shot. :D Well done!

VERY, very well done. The shallow depth of focus on just the shell is great, with the waves OOF. You have perfect lighting and contrast here, and the forboding clouds with sunbeams really pushes the emotive feeling of the whole image. 10

That shell almost looks like it is in the air :) Shame about the sensor dust, dont ya hate basic editing (mine has it too)

that's superb as far as colour, light and perspective is concerned...I cannot wait for the day when rules will allow us to clone out sensor dust, as I am sure you feel the same way...lovely, the rays at the back are great

There's something weird about the blurred background, but the foreground looks really good.

Nice perspective! (You should probably clean that sensor, though). I won't deduct points because of those smudges.

excellent. love the illuminating light on the shell and sand, as well as the light rays in the distant. good luck!
