I appreciate the humor in this one. Wouldn't want to be stranded there though.

This is my first attempt at dpchallenge and I just want to say a big thank you to all of those who took the time to view and vote on this photograph.

The original "island" was a coffee table in my lounge and the concept to use a rock came from a visit to the beach.Unfortunetly when I returned to the beach the following day, the tide was on the way out and the rock that had been chosen was now nowhere near the water.Even in this shot there is only just a trickle of water in front of the rock that was used so the effect was lost.My timing of the sun wasnt to wonderful either.The sun was high in a cloudless sky and even playing around with the exposure levels didnt quite help me to pull it off.

In case you are wondering, the remotes are none the worse for their big day out at the beach.

very clever title -- the splash makes the shot, good dof, main subjects blend into the rock so the shot lacks a strong focal point for me.

Nice title. Now I know where to find the controllers...

More like a remote rock? Anyway, I don't think your idea has worked. Your remote controls are distracting the view of the rock. I am sure that's not what you wanted. My focus turns to the splashing water and what ever I can without those remote controls. Your everyday objects have been over-powered by some rocks and water.

Ha ha ha!
Like the humor (Extra point)
Composition is a bit plain & uninteresting. I think you could have made more of the idea. Perhaps the island is not over convincing as an Island.
