That's not noise, cats_123 — it's a pebble beach! Smile

I rather like this, especially with the narrow band of reflective sea. Exposing for the sky has left the beach is rather dark so I've posted a mod where I adjusted the curves to lighten it while keeping the sky at about the same level. This could have been done with a grad filter but it's probably easier and certainly cheaper to do it in software afterwards. I'm assuming the shot is in focus but it's impossible to tell for an image this small.

However, I don't really get a feeling of desolation. The rays of sunlight coming through the clouds would usually be interpreted as hopeful, warming and comforting. I'd keep the photo and change the title, personally.

Difficult. Not sure what you were taking an image of? would prefer the sky a bit darker, but there's no subject?
