This one doesn't work. It is too flat and not very sharp. Given better quality, you the need a suitably placed object, possibly a figure to act as a focal point. The wide vista then has a meaning.

I like this. The focus is on the foreground leading out to a soft horizon and gives a tremendous feel of space and mystery Smile

I think the biggest problem with this is what you saw has not translated to the image taken. For me I like the action of the waves and the water, compared to the smooth flat sand and I also see the image disappearing into the distance however to try and show this in one image is too much and I have to agree with Paul that if you are shooting off into the distance you do need something in the foreground for the person to start viewing from. I would also suggest using a very low position to take the image to make the viewer think they are on the beach looking out into the distance.

The lighter areas of sand really do look like skin!
The top third of the image is rather featureless and has a wonky horizon, so I would crop the top third off and concentrate on the lovely textures and tones in the lower two thirds, which are quite delightful. The beaches are obviously not crowded in Brasil!
