Annette,
This is not "just a beach pic." It is an award-worthy beach pic.

Sorry you feel "under the weather" and reckon this image sums up how you feel. Sad To be honest, it doesn't have that effect on me as I think it's stunning! Look again and feel your spirits rise Grin Wild and wonderful and perfectly composed.

Excellent composition with great toning. I often use a bit of Topaz myself and used with taste and restraint it's a great piece of software.

Super work, Annette - I don't know why you should feel dispirited when you can produce something like this. Excellent composition and perspective. Must admit I would prefer it without the frame, which draws my eye a bit, but this is just a personal preference. Which version of Topaz do you use?

I like playing with Topaz as well but you have to have an image worthy of it in the first place. The composition on this is excellent Annette, and the cloud detail is echoed by the froth in the water. Beautifully done.
