    I went with Shaun, only because he fucking captured lightening! And it is on a beach...it is insane hard to get lightening...

    Large Peter's is a great shot as well...I just wish the sky was not so blown, not that it is a lot or anything, it is a great shot....

    I voted for Large Peter, though I wish the colour wasn't so processed.

    I voted getson, becuase his shot captured 'beach'
    SHaun's shot was incredible, but it didn't scream loungin on the beach and jumpin in the water, it was more GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE WATER and take cover. Again, love the shot, just not sure it captured the 'beach' Same with bructicle, it looks like a poster for the childrens help phone. Great, dramatic shot, lots of emotion, just didn't make me want to get my towel and jump in the car.
    large peter....decent shot-but the colour kills it for me.

    It took a while to pick mine... But I picked Large Pete. I'm not even sure I should have voted because I don't know anything about photography. So you can take it out if you want.

    Momma always told me if I didn't have anything nice to say, not to say anything at all:p
    I personally just didn't like the shot-no offence dude.

    I liked Getson's but I didn't like how dark the sky was. That ruined it for me. The Green Bastard's was nice as well but it just looked like an everyday picture that anyone would take. I did like how you could see the rocks in the water indicating that the water was clear. I really like the waves in Ryan's picture but I wasn't a fan of the black and white. Almost cold and lifeless for a beach to me. Shaun's was really good too but I wasn't feeling warmth from it and it didn't really look like a beach, more like a barren desert. Rorytate's was good because the focus was on the surfer but that also made it bad for me. One point of focus. And Bruceticle's was definitely different. I don't think I'm fond of the person standing there and the same with Ryan's, I wasn't a fan of the black and white for a place that's supposed to be warm.

    All in all you guys take awesome pictures! I think I'll check out these challenges a lot more now. :)

    getson... I can see it as part of a corona ad or something like that. Well done.

    all of them are good though. hard choice to make.

    The sky looks dark on the computer, but comes out amazing in print! I was actually a little scared to print it but it was exactly what I wanted.
