The waves and rocks would probably kill you if you went swimming there, but you made it look like such an inviting place to jump around in!

The long exposure of the water over rocks has beenr eally well executed here and provides a great image that fits the challenge...........

Fantastic shot. I feel this would be even better desaturated.

This is an incredible shot. Great texture in the rocks, and the turbulent water really adds nicely. I think this will be top 10.
