Being an ex-surfer I am always taking pictures of waves, ridden or not.
When the surf is small and the tide is high it often makes for some spectacular shots. You really can't tell how big they are.
Again thanks for the compliments and votes.

      Very nice shot, really like it. Looks cold, gosh if I lived there I'd have to wear pants? (instead of my usual shorts). One of my favs of the challenge, nicely done!

      Nice shot. I like the slow shutter speed, really brings out the water movement. Nice framing, your picture fits the theme and is a great photo.

      What a dramatic sky. I think I'd have liked to see more of the tree, it would have been a nice border for the pic.

      Beautiful sunset, but I'd have preferred to see more of the trees and less sky. I think that would provide a nice contrast.

They never get the focal length for my camera right, it was 400 mm, with the 1.6 crop equals 640. The rig is about six miles from where I shot it. Can't get closer without a boat.

ysal after your comment I looked up Gina and found it had been set in 1980, I was here but I don't remember it not being there.

I had played with numerous crops and thought this was the best, but Neil you might have been right a pinch off the bottom.

I had played with the blur tool and/or the smudge tool on the water, but just went without changing the water.

Again thanks for the comments, suggestions, and votes.

      Nice shot. It brought to mind the Kinks song from a great album, Muswell Hillbillies, "Have a Cuppa Tea". "Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah Rosie Lea.

      Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. It was an extreme crop, close to a 100%. Should have probably given it a little more room, but I really wanted to play on the osprey's eyes. The blue tint that so many commented on was caused by the wetness on the bird's stomach. He would bend over touching the fish, transferring the moisture to his feathers, hence the wet spot on his breast. When they eat their catch they start at the head and dig in. After scarfing for a while, he'll leave this post with his catch appearing almost whole. The moisture caused the blue tint on his belly, looking at his eyebrows, legs the stripe on his back those are white, so the white balance was right.
Again thanks for the comments!

      Nice shot. I only get to see the browns around here. One time I saw the whites, and it was a flyby.
I like your crop, but wish you'd been able to get a little more depth of field, and having more of the pelicans sharper.

      Almost did not get the picture. As per my usual routine (wait to the last minute) when I tried to download the card using my card reader the card became corrupted. Had never happened before. Took the card out out of the reader, put it back in the camera, and the camera could not read the card. Thank goodness I had Test Disk with Photo Rec I was able to recover the pics. Besides the Rosary pictures there were about 10 days worth of shooting.

About the heathen, that'd be me. I was raised very non-religiously. Dad was a non-practicing Jew, my Mom was an Easter Day Episcopalian. Even though I don't go to church, I try to live my life as "what comes around, goes around" which I consider to be Karma. I endeavor to live my life obeying the Ten Commandments. Even though I am not a regular church goer it seems the only time I see the inside a house of worship is for funerals, and sometimes happier events, weddings,and baptisms.

About how I acquired the rosary. My mother-in-law was a very devout Catholic who died in July 2015. We still get a ton of her mail. We have gotten many dream catchers from the native Americans, greeting cards from Boy's Town, plus offerings from the Sisters of Charity. Mom had a soft heart and donated to everyone (or so it seems) and we still get numerous offerings from a ton of groups. I think the sisters sent us the rosary. Probably thought this heathen, me, needed it!

Again, thanks for the comments, much appreciated.

      What a beautiful church. I find the people standin in the aisle to be a bit of a distraction, I think I might have cropped them out, even though you would not see the altar. Still a great pic!

Jade, sorry about the headache, Tylenol works for me.
ysal, of all the pics I took, this one had the sharpest center. Tried to sharpen it the best I could, but....
Again thanks to all for the words.

      Thanks for all the comments, kind words, and votes.
Elliott, I'd like to see your version, no prob from me.
aoc46 it is only one boat, it's an outrigger!
Mepo, played with cropping, there was only room at the top or bottom, there was no room on the right or left, I did take off a bit off the left, but wanted to leave as much as possible on the right to give the boat some 'room'.
ysal, foggy, yes, of course, it's almost always foggy here at the Strand.
As I said in my pp, had to get rid of a wave at the bottom of the picture. It was about the width of the photo, and half way between the boat and the bottom of the picture.

      I really enjoy your photo, the simplicity of it, the vignette, the sharpness, the motion of the grass, all of it works for me. Nice shot!

      Thanks to all for the comments. I don't know how it could be more red, there's only one color in the picture, red and white.

      Nice pic. Had to do a second take, to me it looks like the umbrellas are floating. Cool photo, really like it.

      Thanks for the comments. As Lo pointed out, and I thought was apparent, there was no focal point. Without a focal point there was also no rule of thirds.
Again thanks for the comments and votes!

      Thanks ysal, I thought it would do better. I thought the pic had a strong composition, nice contrast, and was a little different from most of the entries. Maybe a more dramatic sky would have helped, but I thought it was pretty good.
Thanks to all who commented, and the suggestions.
