Beautiful shot bringing several elements together well. Can understand peoples concerns during the challenge but it really is beautiful and think you can be proud of it regardless.

I really like the shot, but I don't know if it's a intentional portrait or just people who happened to be there.

Beautiful landscape and it would score with high marks with me if it were in a landscape themed challenge. I really want to vote this high but I'm just not seeing the connection to group portrait... sorry.

First let me say that this is a stunning photo, I love the composition and the b& w is great. I do feel however that this does not fit the challenge discription, but that is just my opinion.

I like the shot - I don't think the group is really the focal point though.

You should of saved this for the freestudy.. a great shot that just doesnt meet the challenge in any way, shape nor form.. gonne mark you down which is a shame on such a nice image.

if you get a chance, read up on the definition of portrait. 3

amazing, beautiful shot but the people in it are just blips and the real interest is the landscape

Great mood. Sharp foreground, hazy back is a nice counterpoint.

I am missing the portrait in this shot. Nice photo and the B&W work well.

Very nice composition, great sense of depth and scale!

Umm....I don't see portrait, but it is a lovely seascape.

Delightful shot, lovely tones and good title.

Absolutely breathtaking composition. Great use of b/w. Love this! 8

For me, the entries in "Group Portrait" should be the main focus. With your image, they play very little part. As a landscape, I like your photo, just not for this particular challenge.

very nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A very nice landscape, but it is not a portrait.

Looks like Morro Rock at San Luis Obispo? Really enjoy the Black & White of this with the birds.

This would have been a great picture for the fauna challenge this week or even for a free study. In this challenge it is misplaced imo (5)

beautifull shot, but doesnt fit in this category

I really enjoy this one - it has emotion - wonderful comp - truly well done -1 0
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/04/2007 10:17:52 PM
I may be wrong, but this looks like a California scene I've seen before. Not Morro Rock, but something mid-coast. Not a portrait, but still a nice picture.

out of theme.

I am going to call this one right now.....this one will be the winner. I love it love it love it!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/04/2007 12:55:39 PM
Very lovely shot, but not at all what I would call a portrait. In a free study I would have rated this an 8 or 9.

shoehorn

10/04/2007 10:32:07 AM
Don't know that I'd call this a "portrait", but it's very good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/04/2007 06:58:39 AM
not a potrait
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/04/2007 06:46:00 AM
This isn't what I'd call a group portrait but it's such a great shot that I gave it an 8 any way
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/04/2007 12:17:01 AM
beautiful picture, but it's not a portrait.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 10:54:28 PM
Portrait?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 10:44:10 PM
I am truly looking forward to seeing just how well this fares in the challenge.The most prominent items in this image are the rocks and the birds and the people play only a minor role in the image.

This is indeed a beautiful photo, but I fear that you will suffer the wrath of those that earnestly believe that this DNMC, and in this instance I would fall in that category.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 10:42:31 PM
I assume you accidentally entered this in the wrong challenge?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 06:47:16 PM
I do not consider this a group portrait, sorry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 04:05:10 PM
I really like this photo. I am scoring a bit low since I think that people should be the focal point in a portrait
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 02:18:21 PM
While there are more than 3 people in the photo, I'd hardly call it a portrait. I'm quite tired of photos of this beach being shoehorned willy-nilly into challenges.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 12:02:08 PM
Nice picture - but it doesn't qualify as a portrait in my book.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 11:53:45 AM
Great great photo but it doesn't really fit into the challenge category.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 11:46:00 AM
Love Cannon beach, but not really a potrait.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 11:20:53 AM
This is a very nice shot, but I cannot relate it to a portrait at all.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 10:39:21 AM
This is beautiful but to be a portrait, the humans (or pets, etc) need to be the focus. The softness movement, etc is lovely but this is a landscape. If it were in FS I'd give it a 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 09:20:51 AM
Very pretty!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 09:01:53 AM
An awesome shot, but I'd hardly classify it as a "group portrait" in any form. As a landscape shot, I'd give this an 8. Much lower for this challenge, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 08:35:14 AM
A nice picture, but not really a "portrait"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 08:11:01 AM
It's an exceptionally good b&w nature photo, but not what I could call a 'group portrait'.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 07:43:13 AM
I LOVE IT!!! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 03:31:35 AM
if it was silhouette: 9
but it is "group portrait" , so 4 and really sorry. It's a beautiful pic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2007 03:31:27 AM
i wonder if this is in line with the spirit of a "portrait" though technically it matches the challenge description.
I love the shot independently, but cannot score it high because it is entered in this challenge "portrait"
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh just WOW!
