Well seen shot. Gives a really interesting perspective of sand, which at least in my mind represents a deserty, dry area, with it sitting on a barge floating on a mass of water! -- Tim

A nearly perfect black & white image that has all the zones well-represented. Ansel Adams would be proud. --Chris

Very good. In the old days this sky could only be achieved with a pink or red filter.
Did you use that?
