Nice shot - I like the variance in movements of the water and the injection of green from the seaweed below. What is also good about the composition is the depth of detail i.e the rolling wave and birds towards the background. The soft pink lighting coming across from the left it also great.

Now I don't know if this is just me but is the horizon not quite straight? Seems to drop to the right but may just be an illusion. Otherwise a fantastic shot.

It's a personal thing but in my opinion you have got just the right amount of blur on the water here Jesse and you have timed the shot well to get the water flow at its most dramatic. The exposure is good too. It's all too easy to burn out the highlights in this kind of shot.

I agree with Ollie about the seaweed adding an extra element. From the point of view of composition it's not ideal to have the green tucked away in the corner. But I guess you can't have both the seaweed and the flowing water together.

I am not sure about the seabirds. They are so far in the distance as to be unrecognisable and could be mistaken for dust. I don't think they are sufficently well defined to be a feature of the shot. But it is a good shot overall.

Best wishes

I agree with the above, great shot!

Thanks everyone for your comments! The horizon is definitely a little tilted, I didn't even notice it before y'all said something about it. I thought about cloning out the seabirds, but was undecided and I'm lazy, so I just went with what was less work and kept them. I probably will get rid of them though. And Focus_Man, I really like the crop you did, it seems to work very well. Thansk again everyone!
