I like the brave graphic composition of this but unfortunately that has led to its downfall IMO - the differencee in light levels between the sea and the sand have led this to be nicely exposed on the left for the sand but badly overexposed on the right for the sea.. If this was a horizontal sand/sea split, an ND grad filter would have helped a lot in balancing the light levels. I've put up a mod just to show that there is detail there to be found - I've darkened overall, madew a cuve to darken the highlights and brighten the midtones, the heavy use of the burn brush on the sea and the doodge brush on the sand. I don't think this is enought to rescue it, but it just shows you that there's often hidden detail that can be worked with.

So, lovely idea for a comp, but unfortunately a bummer of an exposure to get right - put it down to experience.. Smile
