It was a beautiful evening at the beach. I feel so lucky to live just steps away. I fear I might get marked down because of the blur on the wave, but I thought I'd submit anyways and share this fabulous scene with voters. My favorite part about this is the reflection in the pools of water. :)

Incredible shot, I especially love:

- Water action
- Reflection of sky in puddle
- Hightlights

Not like:

- Darkness of right rock
- Noise / Grainyness (sp?)

Also depends what style you want to go for but I think smart dodge/burn would be helpful (whilst retaining the calmness of the image). Anyway, enough from me, fav'd it :)

I really like this shot. It seems to be more artistic than those set-up shots to me, but then again I am a landscape kind of guy. At any rate very nice shot, I think you did a magnificent job at capturing it.

Excellent! looks almost like a dream.

A little off-topic: I always thought the teeth breaking sentence was 'She sells sea shells by the seashore'.

This is kind or a magical shot to me, as I just love the colors, the waves, the sky, and everything about this one Shannon.
I gave you a nine, and felt this deserved to score much higher.

This is a beautiful shot. Love the reflections in the pools. Brings back fond memories of living in California about 5 minutes from the coast. Miss having that luxury. East coast beaches are just not the same. Dull in comparison, plus I prefer sunsets to sunrises.

Great work Shannon. It should have placed much higher than it did.

BTW, I love your name. My daughter has one just like it. :D

I gave this a 7, which is a very high score from me on a landscape, since landscapes usually bore me, even when they're pretty. This one's got some good energy from the crashing wave, the reflections and the crazy clouds.

Excellent. I love not only the clarity, but the ever-so-slightly warm tone. Great composition, as well

This is the first pic given to me for voting and a great one to begin with. Nice detail, great lighting and the colors are soft and sweet. Very nice capture and I expect this to do well. 8 for now.

Wow, this is great! I was thinking you'd need to enter a striking composition in the Pastel Challenge, since the colors would be muted, and you've definitely succeeded in that. 9.

Good composition and the reflecting sky really brings this picture to life.

Certainly my favorite and my only 10! I'm guessing this is sunrise? I love the colors and perfect on the splash and refection - awesome!!!

Absolutely stunning! Perfect exposure, perfect light and perfect timing. I so love this type of shot in light pastel over a highly saturated Sunset/sunrise. Very beautiful and one of my favorites of the challenge.

A beautiful rendering of the ocean, which is not usually considered pastel! I like the reflection of clouds in the puddle. Great picture matching the theme!!

Nice colours, great composition, my eyes keep looking up at the sky which is a good thing.

Absolutely amazing. Great color contrasts despite keeping to the pastel theme. 9

beautiful, but i would of preferred a slow shutter to blur out the sea spray.
