    Nicely done, on a shot that must have had a huge exposure range.

    Wow! The composition, the shadows, the low sun, the gulls - it all adds up to a great picture! You're up against some stiff opposition, but this one should do very well. It certainly does with me!

    The sun, the birds, the sun bathers and board walkers all contribute to a very nice composition.

    Brilliant image. Stark contrast certainly adds uniqueness. TT pretty sure!

    I like how there is a sunbather right in front and how her chair has a nice shadow. I think the people walking on the boardwalk is a nice addition.

    I am usually not attracted to B/W but you have made a very special photo and the sun seems to have a warm glow. Excellent capture! Good Luck!

    Wow that's a great effect. Seems a bit 'different' without the natural colour, but different in a good way.

    Really like the effect here. Great composition and exposure - the play of light and shadow is very well done.

    Interesting and subtle use of the plug-in. I love the shooting angle. Nice how the birds circle the sun. Good control of exposure. In my first draft of favorites (top 15 or so). Good luck!

    Like the use of the wideangle here. That and the dramatic shadows give a nice effect.

    love the silhouettes but imo, it would be much nicer if only the picture is slightly brighter
