I had many options for this challenge from a trip to this site. Its a birdnesting paradise as millions of birds nest there every year. Unfortunetly they havnt been able to for the last couple of years due to lack of food supply from the ocean. The fish they feed on has disappeared. Some say because of the warming oceans the fish has gone. Lets hope it comes back or otherwise these birds are in serious trouble.

What a fine treasure of an image with that distant lighthouse as a lookout. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

This is beautiful. I love the blues of the water, and the layers of clouds in the sky. The rocks look great too. I can't decide if I like the light house or not (not that you really had a choice on that).

Great feeling of depth in the picture. Good sharpness. Orange and yellow lighthouse (post-processing?) really stands out indicating the fire, right next to the sunlight coming through the clouds. I love this picture. One of my first 10 votes.

Nice capture - Nice and moody but the light house looks a little too PP'd

I was going to enter an image similar to this. I ran out of time. Well done.

Beautiful greys and aqua tones in this scene, and they really make that lighthouse standout. Wonderful composition as well. Great job!

when I first saw this I didn't have time to stop and comment, I decided I would come back and do that...

This is spectacular in every way. The colours, the touch of red, the perspective, the sky, the editing...I love everything about it, and I hope you are doing well with it so far. All the very best for the challenge...I cannot fault this 10
