Hi
The beach is a great place to capture some good images. There is a couple of things that I would change with this image if I were composing it.
Firstly the horizon is at a slight angle so keep an eye on that and try to keep it horizontal, I think its a good basis for a good image.
There is some rocks at the left of the image, however you have cut some of these rocks off the side of the image.
There is also a lady with a white body warmer on, she is walking in the direction of the rocks (which I'm sure look good closer in to the beach). I woul dhave this lady placed at the bottom right of the image to help the composition. It would also get rid of the large portion of sand that occupies the bottom of the image.
So by moving the image to the left a little, I think you would have a much better composition. This would show that the lady is walking towards and would make the viewer think about what she may do next.
Making the viewer think about the image is catching there interest.

I hope this helps you in future.

Richie.

Richie has it spot on, there's a potentially good shot here but it looks as if you just ttook the first shot you saw. It always pays to look around, try different angles and different perspectives, crouch down if needed, and work out where and how all the elements fit into the frame and complement esch other.

It looks a bit soft - that might be due to the jpeg compression - is the original shot sharp? When you resize and save the jpeg ready for uploading, open up the shot once more before uploading, do a small sharpen (maybe 30%) and save again, and then upload - it makes a difference

Hope that's some use

Stephen
