"Wow, that's STRONG!" , my instructor said to me during the critique of this photo. "You should change your portfolio focus to more shots like this," I still don't know what he was talking about. I just like rocks and how the elements form them over 50 or 100 thousand years. I don't think he got it. Personally and subjectively, I think this snapshot is a poor imitation of what the Weston's, Adams and other f64er's were shooting on the same damned Monterey beach in the middle of the last century. I just like rocks like these. And the mighty Pacific Ocean of course.
