Powerful! This brings me right there - I can feel the vastness of the water and the movement of the waves. A beautiful shot!

i love the picture but i think this does not meet the challenge because it is not just black and white. lots of blues and a tinge of red...still, a great shot!

Awesome shot! I would have bet this was from Iceland, not Australia. Love the softness of the water and the sky created by the exposure, and the bit of orange/red on the horizon is perfect - makes the shot. Nice work!

Wow... I didn't notice that this one was yours. I'm thankful you didn't get nailed with the DNMC challenge votes too badly, as this was pretty clearly the most striking image in the challenge - where was it taken?

A fantastic effort - here's to team pentax!

This remains one of my favorites from the challenge. There is so much energy radiating from, the, er, Angler.

how did you get him to hold still through this time exposure? great job. -8-

This is a good quality photo technical wise. Your subject still has color blue jacket.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 07:32:52 PM
Looks over photoshopped.
07/26/2006 07:31:06 PM
WoW! What a shot! It might be my screen (or my eyes) but it looks more blue then b/w/gray to me, IMO this would ribbon in the color challenge. 10

Good luck in the challenge!

Very Beautiful! the border is a nice touch.

Very nice photo but I think it doesn't fits well in B&W in Color. The attention goes to the red horizon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 11:54:17 AM
If you had adjusted the blue down just a bit in post processing this would have looked more like a B&W (Not sure if that is legal for this challenge). I consider this a minor issue but I'm afraid it could hurt your score with the DNMC crowd. A minor issue with me and places in my top 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 11:46:49 AM
I think the bright line of sunlight distracts from the B&W challenge... great picture otherwise!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 10:10:23 AM
If this would not have any red in it I would have gave it a 6 or 7. Sorry for the 4. You did put some thinking into your shooting. I thank you for that.

Stunning concept baby, well done. :)

I like the feel of stillness and motion; of waiting at the end of the day; of water above and water below.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2006 12:53:44 AM
Moreso blue and black, but I love the long exposure effect on the waves.
