Hi Patti, I love the morning, and you captured a beautiful one here.
The tones and textures are fantastic!! #9602209

Laura E. Swan level-classic August 13, 2011

I read somewhere that gold tones are the most difficult to capture.


Also the lines that the water created ashore are really unusual. I like the subtle separation of textures as well.

I bet the judges will eat their lunches examining this one! :D !!! I hope so!

BRAVO, Patti!
