Treasure of Iron Mountain
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6D EX DC HSM Camera: Pentax K-5 

I took this photo in Langebaan on the west coast of South Africa. It is a magic location and very popular with tourists. I spotted this shipwreck a while back and it is only a 5 minute drive away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. Not many people are aware of it but I was so happy to photograph it. I made use of a Lee Filters 0.9 ND filter + 0.9 ND Grad to get the milky effect on the water. Setting on my K-5 were: ISO 100, 8secs, f/16 with a 18mm focal length. Really hope it stands a chance!

Nont sure why nobody nominated this so far. But I do like the color and composition and also how a piece of wreck becomes an object of intrest and beauty through the eyes of a photographer. nominated

I like the story and composition, something trips me about the transition between the mountain and the sky - the colors up there look a bit unnatural. I will nominate it anyway, because this photo made me stop and look for a longer while.

Thank you for the nominations guys. I really appreciate the comments. Good luck to everyone. I wish there was a way to upload the high resolution version. It does look a lot better.
