PHOTO STAFF CRITIQUE
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.
