Lyn - The scene is drop-dead gorgeous with color, lighting, and contrast that pick up every sweeping line of clouds, waves and mountains in a dynamic way. While I like the canvas effect, I might suggest reducing the scaling (and/or relief) to make the effect a little more subtle. Thad

Hmmm, I like it Lyn, for me I like the amount of texture you used here, really gives a mat finish. Beautiful imagery, with some very good post work. Tigs♥ =^..^=

The canvas texture does give it the look of a painting. Wonderful image Lyn very well composed and shot.

Great shot, but I am not so sure about the texture, doesn't do the shot any good in my humble opinion :o)

What a drop dead gorgeous image. I like the border too. But I agree the texture really doesnt add anything to the image, just my opinion.

Lots of Wow factor in this one and beautiful colors too. The mountains, clouds and water make a very powerful image. Regarding composition, one little nit would be to add more beach or crop out the bit that's showing. The tiny sliver of beach adds a sense of almost-but-not-quite which detracts from the commanding impact of the photo.

It is very nice but I would reduce the canvas effect as it distorts the clouds too much. Great framing. did I say an excellent photo? It is.
