Nice view; it might have been cool to square off the window frame; if it was a nice wood, you could have even framed it by providing a bit of inside light on it. But in any case, the bottom light lip (and the bit at the top) probably should have been cropped.

A pretty good view, out to a misty horizon. Why did this need to be validated. It seems meet the challenge?

Very interesting beach. I wonder what makes the waves come in like that. Were those . . . rushes put there to keep it at bay? Kind of cool effect.

Wonderful composition and subject. I like the slight angle of the window frame.

Spectacular scenery but I find the window frame lacking in appeal.

I like the repetition of the curves, but I find myself looking for a strong focal point every time I look a this, but I never quite find it. (5)

Wonderfully executed.

Nice scenic, subtle colors. Not a whole lot of impact.

Interesting seascape, nice colors and composition. However, I don't think the border really adds to the image, since it's too dark and out of focus. Tighter cropping maybe?

Excellent choice of what to show in your window -- would like to see the window crisper as it's a bit distracting as the natural frame. as presented one of my favorites this time 8

Very nice....good clarity, level water line & great color. ALMOST put something similar in myself, but not confined to 1 window. I prefer to see a bit more detail of the inside & have a larger view of outside. I had too many refections due to no polorizer for a new lens. After the challenge, I'd love to know what lighthouse it is & see other shots you took :) Good luck!

What an interesting pattern in the shore you found in this image. While I wish the window frame was in better focus, overall, it's a nice photograph.
