I was out with Alun Davies on a brilliant afternoon at Traeth Mawr as the sun set and caught this sandy path through the rocks to the waters edge. Although in January the wind had dropped, the sun shone and it was a lovely afternoon.

What a cracking shot with great potential but please rotate it to the right to level the horizon, I'm sure you will be happy with the result. Nice capture. Smile

I can see what mhfore means, but for me this image is about light and mood. It does it for me !

Love the rich tones in this, Paul. Great foreground and lead-in line. The sun's exposure is very well controlled although the top right quarter of the image might benefit from a slight exposure lift via a feathered curves layer. It was a great evening and this conveys the conditions well.

beautiful exposure on the sun and lovely lead in, but as Alun say, try to lift the shadows on the top right.
