Angel from Madrid, Spain

Excellent. Perfect the game of the planes and thirds of the image. That diffuse aspect reinforces the sensation of storm and wind. Wonderful.

P J W Miller from Chase Terrace, United Kingdom

This has worked very well. Four strips of the three natural element, land sea and air, the top three strips balanced out perfectly with the sea, a tempestuous vision

Very creative. Love the effect..the blurr..the soft contrasting color. Reminds me of an impressionist oil painting.

Alivia from Saint-Etienne, France

What a fabulous treatment , the sea is fraught with foam, but they seem a duvet, a white vapor that flies in the wind, is magical and majestic at the same time. Amazing and great shot.

Well Sharon... this is something. This looks like a place usually without such waves. This has your usual sense of intrigue, but in a whole different way. I can feel something brewing here. Really wonderful image. As always, it's got me thinking.
