Description: "My husband held up this kelp at Crane Beach so I could see it in the sunlight. A sea gull just happened to fly by at the right time."

Camera info: iPhone 4


This image stands out because of its creativity and use of lighting. Having the sun positioned behind the kelp brings out its details and saturated color, which is a great contrast to the blue sky. One way the picture could be improved is to use a larger aperture like f/22 to make everything in focus. The photographer created an eye-catching, surreal landscape.
