Shot in Kippford, Dumfries and Galloway. This beach is made entirely of crushed shells. The tide draws them into ridges as shown here.

It's a nice panorama and I particularly like the sky.
I think because the distinguishing feature of this beach is the shells you could have made much more of them, how about using your wide angle to get them right in the forefront of the frame so that we can see individual shells and all the patterns and textures that would be revealed.

Thanks for your comments.

Simon - I couldn't make a feature of the shells because they are all crushed, but I do take your point as a general principle in landscapes. Because the pieces are smooth and pretty small there isn't even decent texture in the shells. The only real feature of the shells - and it's what appealed to me in the scene - was that they were formed into these two ridges leading the eye into the scene. It was a bit of a compromise getting the eye-level right. A higher viewpoint might have given length to the ridges, but it would have revealed an uninteresting strip of empty water.
