interesting skies made for an interesting shoot

-edit-

Yes, I concede that I'm slightly retarded for spelling "beckoning" as "beconing".

Simply gorgeous! This is one of the finest images I've seen on this site.
Excellent lighting, brooding skies and pristine water ... incredible.

great moment and I love the light just peaking though the skies in the background. Congrats on 12th.

Thanks for all the great comments! Yes, beckoning is the word I meant. Who's the retard? *raises hand*

Incredibly nice landscape in portrait mode. Lovely muted color, great light, and yes, an awesome sky.

Congrats to your top20 finish - nevertheless I'd say your ribbon was stolen!

Nice drama in sea and sky there and the detail on the fissured rocks in the foreground adds a sense of nature's power of erosion. 9.

I think "Beconing" is really spelled "Beckoning". But a very nice shot, great detail in the rocks and water, and the capture of the light rays in the background adds interest there too and deepens the image. Very well done. 8

I'm assuming you mean 'beckoning skies' - but semantics aside this is a terrific landscape. 8.

Good work; the sky feels desaturated, rather than simply actually grey - there's usually some hints of colour in a scene like this, of blues and yellows, and in a world of toned greys the pure grey seems out of place: but that's a feeling, rather than a criticism. has a feel also of HDR work, but its well controlled.
