The stunning color, composition, silhouette and reflection all come together in such a beautiful piece of artwork. Congratulations on your Top 10!!!

Thanks, yeah, that makes sense. 4 different people commented about the dust/bird issue.

Thomas, I think that, blown up to large format and hanging on a gallery wall, the birds would be a delightful surprise as you walked closer.

But at this small image size, they're just distracting spots. And Bear, I was hardly the one to note that. :P

Anyway, it really is a beautiful shot, so congrats!

Levy, I'm pretty sure those are BIRDS. I magnified the image, and a lot of the "spots are birds for sure :-)

Thomas, fine shot, "damned beach"!

Great pic, but is that sensor dust or seagulls or what? I find those black specks distracting and I thought it was dirt on my monitor at first.

I do like the pic and with a frame/border and some cleaning it could be great.

Ok there. . . 10

At this moment, while browsing and voting, Strauss' Blue Danube is playing and Odyssey 2001 is in my mind, and then, this photo pops up. Good. You get a point plus for the luck.

Gorgeous picture, but it looks like you've got a bad case of sensor dust that needs to be cleaned. Or, are those all birds?

All is great except for the dust specks. Incredible light.

This is a really nice shot. You're caption, however, sounds like a 70's "Billy Squire" song. <G>
