This is beautiful, Scott! I can't imagine the score if you'd straightened the horizon! LOL!

Congrats on your HM! It's really a stunning image.

Very strange, haunting image. Not sure but what maybe the tilt is actually helping it, in the "haunting" sense :-) Congrats on HM!

Thanks for the many wonderful comments and votes in spite of my beginners mistake of forgetting to straighten the horizon. There are so many great photographers at DPC sometimes I think a good part of the challenge is being in the right place at the right time. This was one of those moments. We were camping at the beach at the end of the rainy season and about a hour before sunset a big storm rolled by. The darkness of the clouds combined with two ND filters allowed me to get the smooth look I was looking for. Several of you asked about a B&W version. I'll put it in the outakes with a straightened horizon :)

Congrats to the top 3 great winning photos.

So glad to be wrong! The colors and soft sky/water are captivating.

Nicely seen, truly minimalist and has some very lovely tonality.

An enjoyable scene, the tilted, and <?too sharp> horizon will hurt your score, but no matter. I really like the hues of the ocean and sky.

nice

Great shot. This is in my top 5 - ribbon contender! Love the hue, and the dreamlike quality of the sea and sky.

Solid, desolate image. Did you try it in B&W? I like the tonality very much though. Only that the line of the horizon reverses the perspective in which case a crop of the sky above would be beneficial.

The footprints on the beach spoil it a bit. It must have been extremely long exposure to get the sky and water to look like this.

Stunning. Top 10?

this is nice! perfect color! just a bit, horizon is tilting (probably your many stops filter is too dark during compo)

Must be a new "movement" to have this type of background style. I like it! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like.

Cool oh you said cold.... well then Great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2011 10:18:46 AM
Is it a long exposure picture? Is that why the sky and the water look like smoke?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2011 04:48:51 AM
Beautiful shot, however (you are probably tired of this comment)...its tilted.

Totally serene to me.

The ocean is like a mirror of the sky which is like a mirror of the ocean! Wow!

Gorgeous photo but WHY didn't you straighten the horizon?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2011 03:55:46 AM
If this horizon was straight... if only!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Looks like one of those baby turtles heading for the sea.

I love the sky/ocean, and I love the beach/boat. But somehow they don't go together.

I really like this photo. However, the horizon isn't straight and that is kinda bothering me. The right side is higher than the left side.
