[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The cross is a memorial to a tragedy that happened at sea. On PS I converted the photo to mono by desaturating and adding contrast. I've also added some gassiuan blur around the edges for a softer look and finally added the frame. The lens I used is the 70-300mm and since it was during daylight I used the highest Aperture to obtain the least shutter possible for some wave effect.

i like a lot the concept of the image...it expresess a lot of things, and its well done, but I really think it can be better without the gassiuan blur... the picture is explosive, dont stop it's rage...

A very srong image!

Great photo, with a strong motion!
I like the ambiguous mood in it, both dynamic and silently commemorating.
And great title, love that song! :)

Great photo Matthew. I think if you make the cross sharp and the others blurred it would be better (just my taste). Anyways good composition and b/w rendition.

hi Mathew.

It's pity that this photo has no sharp focus. This cross is ideal object to focus on and build whole photo around it. As other comments said this photo has a great and strong story.
