The soft, very light grey of the sky and the darkness of the foreground sand gives the image a very stable/ balanced feel. I am used to seeing seascapes with perfectly level horizons. I kinda like turn my head to the side a bit with this one. But maybe you deliberately did that to keep the main subject at the vertical. Its a shame there is a bit of light at the right corner, It kinda suck my gaze towards it and away from the little girl. But all in all this is a very lovely piece of photography and I would not mind it at all hanging on my wall.

Thanks for the comments. I didn't really think too much about the horizon, it was just the angle I took the shot at. I could have done with a bit more detail in the sky as well, but it was a dull day with little definition in the clouds.

Cheers

great sense of adventure. Lovely tones, beautiful comp, sense of space. Don't worry about the horizon, whenever my head is not straight on my shoulders (which is often) I tend to see tilted horizons.
