Couldn't resist going a bit dark with this one, too. Maybe I'll go for a pretty, dreamy look on the next... Just enjoying playing at the moment.

A sense of mystery about this one. You've caught the moment well, very good timing.

Thanks fellas.
Thanks Andy. I tried to get rid of the sharpening halo when I sharpened the pic, because it was particularly marked, but maybe I didn't go far enough.

you could try selective sharpening, add a duplicate layer in PS, sharpen it to suit, add a layer mask and click "hide all", then (if your mask is white) you use a black brush to just burn through the bits that you want sharpened,
if you make a mistake just change your brush to white and you can cover the mistake, once satisfied flatten the image. cheers martyn

Thanks Martyn, and everyone. That's very similar to what I did, Martyn, but didn't mask the bit I should have done enough. Smile I've gone back to the original file and done it now, and it does look better.

I do like it, BUT I think there is too much contrast as the background sand is very dark, also I might have cloned out the people on the beach, I havnt read the comments above as I make my own mind up first.
I do like the fact your trying something new, though you still think too much, lol
Keep messing, I do like where its going.
