Hi Cliff .. before I leap in I just wondered what sort of feedback you're looking for. Are you wanting some constructive criticism and ways of improving your work .. ?

I'm an amateur but I find the open access to everyone's experience on this site really valuable Grin

Well Cliff I've travelled a bit in my time but I have never come across sea this colour. Nice one.

I think it depends what your take is on photoshop or PSP'ing your work (or whatever programme you have) .. some choose not to ..

However .. just my thoughts Grin .. If this were mine, I'd experiment with taking out the sky to concentrate the attention further down the picture. At the moment, for me it lacks impact .. it's a nice picture but could have more energy to lift it off the screen. If you cropped it so the couple were on the 50/50 line, and then maybe - or maybe not - take off a little of the left (or the right) hand side to shift the focus from dead centre to slightly off centre, you'd have a better balance. But then, it's not my picture!! just my 2p worth anyway ... and everyone will have their own opinions on pics .. just experiment and be bold Grin

It's also a little soft - what's your original like? perhaps could do with a little unsharp mask ..

Thank you both!
The colours are unretouched and I haven't done anything with photoshop except resample.

I shall experiment with cropping ......
