Whoa, first place, now I never imagined that!

Jetties, one of my favourite subjects. I've also started using cokin external glass graduated filters as you can see on this shot, it can really help for some dramtic effects, especially when shooting into the sun as my dad taught me......! This one's for you Bill....Keep well!

Virtually no editting at all, neat image for noise, very minor touch of topaz adjust, USM and re-size.

Lovely into the sun shooting. I may have to look into learning about filters after I see what you and Joe (jdannels) can do with 'em. Though I fear it's more your eye and skill than the filters!

What a nice sky. The detail in water is amazing. Very moody. Good luck!

Beautiful sky in this image. I would have liked to see a more prominent placement on the person... perhps a bit closer to the right edge.

Good quality shot, good lines, the sun is a little bright and distracting (out of your control for this one) Overall great shot.
