Crisp and sharp, good detail in the shadows. Nice work.

A really fine example of what you can achieve with a smartphone: while I hate using them for pictures, I know they often suit other people who can't be bothered with a mirrorless camera and half a dozen lenses...

Big plus points are a perfectly level horizon, and the way that the water on the sand curves near the bottom of the frame, but doesn't reach it.

If there's a suggestion to make here, it's that the sky, while lovely, is quite big, and cropping the lighter area at the top would leave a more compact composition, with the horizon 2/3 of the way up the frame. But it's not half bad as it stands...

A great coastal beach scene.

A nicely composed image.
I particularly like the way the sun hits the water and highlights the outline of the rock base.

Beautiful timing for the ebb and flow of the waves.

Hi all,

Thanks for your comments.

Dudler - I know what you mean about smartphones, and the image wasn't really intentional. I saw it on a evening wander, and it was hard not to take a picture of such beauty.

I am hoping to return soon, as this would be a great place to learn.

Thanks all,
