Pacific Sunset #2
Finalist
This is just one of many sunset photos I took on a beach north of Morro Bay, CA, one evening in July. Moved the sandpiper out from the shadow/reflection of the rock and applied a buZZ filter.

Nice work on this, NIkki. And agree the bird looks better positioned. Perhaps we can share tips at the Omaha BP shoot! :-)

Thanks so much everyone--not even home yet and just checked in to see if results were out yet. What a thrill it was to see those medals in my gallery :)--my first two!! Congratulations to everyone else who had images that were recognized and if you didn't have one this time well, just keep the faith. Shoot for yourself and it will happen.

Fabulous landscape, Nikki! I'm so impressed you were able to move the sandpiper--but aside from that, the colors and tones are so beautiful, the composition is perfect ... I also tried to comment on a recent landscape (also of Morro Bay) but BP froze up and I lost it. ANYWAY, congratulations on a fantastic finalist!! :D
