This photograph really has some powerful features in it! I really love the placement of the rocks and the waves that are hitting them. The comparisons of the blues and whites of the water are very well done! The contrast is also being implemented very well. The shadowing is just to show all of the darkened spots of the rocks. Great use of the side lighting of the sun. What is also an awesome aspect of this photograph is the island on the horizon. It leads my eyes directly to it and also gives me a pretty good look at the clouds. Overall, this is a really impacting photograph with lots of simplicity and details. Well done!
