Please consider that the negative space can also indicate the s curve. follow the water from left to right then right to left and finally left to right into the sky.

Well at least I see I wasn't alone in not finding the 'S' curve in here.

Oh, and yes, it's a beautiful shot - really.

Hmmm...wonders out loud if that second sentence will be enough for a 'Helpful' comment check. :P

This is really lovely except your horizon is a little crooked.

Very pretty scene, and I imagine there's an 'S' in there somewhere, but I'm not seeing it. Looks like your horizon is tilted a bit to the right. :P Good luck in the challenge.

Beautiful picture !! I just don't see the leading S line. I don't think it meets the challenge, but the picture is so pretty that I will not hurt it by scoring low, I just won't score it. I think it may look even better with a bit more contrast to the water portion.

Lovely seascape even if it is hard to "see" the s. pretty goos composition, I wounder if an nd grad might have helped him.

This is a really nice sunset. That said, the concept of the s-curve is a device that leads the viewer's eye either through the image or to the subject. I'm not getting either in this (very nice) shot. Your subject, the intersection of the sunset and the rock's silhouette, is so strong as to take control of the image.

Please don't think I'm just ragging your shot. It really is a great shot. I'm just not getting the challenge from it.

I see no S-curve.

Beautiful shot, this is the reason I have so much trouble competing here -- not enough natural beauty close to home. I'm wondering if the S-curve is implied in the rocks or in the water, though...

I'm sure others will comment on the crooked horizon, but the colors and composition make up for it! 10 for me! :)

I am looking for, but not seeing, the S curves in this. The horizon is a little askew also. I do like the picture and the location. The lighting is very nice.

I dont really see the S???
