The Image: Taken at Lorne on a day when I walked and talked with God about my future and what He wants me to do. It was a glorious day and I know as I walked along the beach on the glorious day He gave me, He reaffirmed His love for me and His will for my life.

Excellent result Enzo, and once again, I just love your images, when in the duotones in the blue shades, as they always stand out, and so well photographed.

I also LOVE the clarity of the image and the awesome tones.....

Thank you also for sharing your thoughts of that day, as it brings more 'emotive' feeling to this awesome image

This is a lovely image. I love the blue-grey tones. One of my favorite in the challenge. I hope it wins a ribbon. Very diverse tonal range and a strong compostion. 10

Not sure I like the border treatment, but the composition works.

Safety, for sure. I like the image very much. I think, with the challenging lighting, that the blue tint BW was a great choice.

I am the walrus....nice to meet you.

The big white border does nothing for me. Interesting perspective.

Great shot - love the duotone effect.

The crop is unusual to me but everything else is classically perfect! I think your capture is perfect and should place in the top 10 (if I had my way). I'll give it a 10.

I predict this shot to be in the top 10.

Cool perspective and tones, that sun flare is a bit harsh on the eyes but it's a great shot. 7.

I like the crispness, nice shot!

Beautiful duotone. Hotpasta would be proud.

The border doesn't work for me though, and the foreground lacks enough detail IMO.

I love the clouds and the light radiating from the sun.

Not an easy shot to take given the basic editing restrictions, though you've done well with this.
