    I love your perspective on this shot, Cora with the reversal of small/large perception, as well as your vertical composition and that eye-catching yellow to draw us in!

Hi Cora, this is gorgeous! I love the buoy in the FG and the lighthouse in the BG, it makes you take a closer look and pulls your eye thru the photo.

Thanks so much Darren, Brenda, and Kay! Judging from all of the wonderful responses I guess the risk was worth the results. The tide was coming in and I was afraid I was going to get washed AWAY while waiting for everyone to get out of the way so I could get the shot. There was a sign posted about how many people had been killed walking out on the rocks and if you chose to do so you were doing it at your own risk. It was a huge relief to return to dry land. :)

let me be the first to congratulate you on this win, Cora! Such a different take on an oft photographed subject! Who would've thought....use a buoy for a very very strong foreground element! Only from a brilliant photographic mind can something like this happen. The colors just jump out of the screen. The extra effort paid off...just be careful next time, though. No picture is worth getting hurt for. As much as we love this picture and all of your work, YOU are even more precious.
