Wow. What a story. Or stories. Standing on the beach in stormy weather is an awesome experience (in the literal sense of "creates awe"), and you managed to combine that with the emotional oomph of time spent with a parent (or grandparent). I find the contrast in the first two comments amusing.

Good DoF control to give this a nice feeling. I like the exposure you choose. It is a near perfect image, there is something I think it needs, but I am not sure exactly. Still striking shot.

This one's a stunner. The vastness of the composition highlights the vulnerability and fragility of the child in an extraordinary way.

I like it, Don. Very nice.

Very nice shot Don. I'm surprised that you scored as high as you did with a shot that is so nice. Doesn't make sense does it?

To my eyes the dark processing suits the subject, and emphasises the scale and bleakness of the scene. The interaction between the adult and child sends out a spark of optimistic hope...

Very talented processing and a good photo, the darkness is the answer to the finish.

Great use of negative space, I like the b&w for this too.

Very nice. I wish there were note to the left of the photo, but it is still a spectacular shot!

Very stormy, moody shot. Nice monotone.

This is too "drab". Perhaps increasing the contrast would help.
