    It was a crazy weekend for me and I forgot to vote and didn't get a chance to comment... but this was one of my definite favorites. :) I like your editing.

    Billy, this was clearly a contender. Nice finish all the same.

    Beautiful and "strong" scenery. It's stunning with and without the people, but they help to get an impression of this very wide range. Fits perfectly to the theme. Very well done!

    I really like the brooding sky here. The scale is right for me with the human touch just noticeable. High on my list. Good luck.

    I like it!....Perhaps a little bit dark...
Great mood!And nice composition too!

    The sky is good to me, but the sand is way too orange. My mind can't wrap around orange sand. I normally like tone mapped images, but the sand color is too much for me here.

    Lovely shot but overprocessed. When I see the processing firt, before the actual photo I just cannot get past it, and that is what I suffered from here I am afraid.

    I'm not familiar with tone mapping, but the result is certainly spectacular. The figures on the beach really give life and perspective to the photo

    maybe a little overdone and otherworldly, but has its appeal. good luck with entry. el

    I normally tend to turn away from overly processed tone mapped images but there is a subtle richness here which I find compelling. I do wish there was only one figure in the image (either one) and feel that the image could be just a tad sharper. That said, wonderfully captured and composed. Nicely framed with an excellent subject and time of day exposure.
