    O.k. So this is what I am talking about. That said, your most recent RAW entry surpasses even this in excellence (and remember I find most sunset sunrise shots banal and cliche.) Yours have punch and originality and that, makes them truly artistic.

    Thanks for all the comments! AND VOTES!!!

Jade O., no I didn't build it. There's a lot of driftwood on this beach, and someone is always building something. The day after I took this shot I went back (thinking I could get a better version), and someone had knocked it all down.

Lo: I too thought it looked like a shrine of some type :)

    Congratulations on a fine finish. This was my No. 1. Now tell us the story of the structure. Did you do it and what purpose does it serve apart from evoking shrine iconatry.

    Spectacular composition; excellent exposure. Another shot that makes me homesick for the sea. This one reminds of some great times in NZ BBQing on the beach.

    This is a stunning photo. The lighting and positioning of the driftwood have given it the appearance of a shrine

    Very powerful shot, and for my money has to be up there in the top three.

    This reminds me of an entry from RR in fujimugs (a pagoda by the sea). And this looks as stunning also! Good luck!

    It is images like these that may make me a fan of sunset shots yet. Wonderfully Zen-like(?). This reminds me of a Shinto Shrine. Beautifully photographed.

    looks like a shrine on the beach. a lot of different takes on the theme. i might have tried to get a bit more color out of the clouds. el
