This picture sort of screws with my depth perception. I really don't know for sure if this rock is 5 to 10 feet, or five to 10 miles big. LOL. Great, Great photo.

Beautiful capture and composition although it looks like the ND filter has overshadowed the sea near the horizon-but that was the price of basic editing. Well done and congratulations.

The use of flash to create an opposing lighted scene in comparision to the sunset exactly matches the nature of the challenge is a very effective demonstration of how light can be used. Well done.

Nice image, however, I feel it is a little let down by being a bit over saturated.
