Agreed, but once seen, because of the minimalist composition IMHO it stands out. Note: I'm in no way saying its a bad image - I'd have it my PF any day - rather that it could be strengthened further (from the little I know of you - your standards are very high).

Edit: Just seen the version - better in my opinion.

Appreciate the isolation of the ' shell ' - but as it is the focal point of the image I am surprised nobody has mentioned the glaring halo's around the curves - outside and in. !!!!!!!!

A simple composition but there is plenty to admire here Jeanie. A great sky with good movement. The blurred wave(s) in the foreground provide a nice tonal contrast with the sculpture. I do prefer the mono to the colour version as well.

Bri - you are clearly bothered by what you see but on my two moniters I cannot see what you are seeing - I will check again tomorrow in the light of day though. Smile

The colour really wowed me and the mono does too, I'd echo what Derek says right up to the preference part: colour still my favourite but this would do, especially once I cocked my head to 45 degrees WinkGrinGrin
