A touch of levelling of the horizon wouldn't go amiss, Netta, but a nice composition. Those beach huts look well maintained, I can imagine they are permanently in use throughout the summer (if there is oneGrin) Carol

agree about the levelling and, personally I would look at cropping out the trees/sky...they don't seem to add anything to the image. I also think you could lift the shadows on the beach huts. Smile

Looks a place to return to at different times, seasons Smile

Levels adjustment is all it needs Netta the composition is very good as you have kept in all the masts.

It isn't easy to get the "perfect" image with so much to play with.
I love beachhuts and tried to get a pleasing image in Eastbourne
last year but couldn't get what I wanted.
Anyway your image holds the promise of summer and maybe if you're back again
Try a few images with just three huts even if it means a bit of cloning out
some stuff.As Trev says you've got to keep the masts in if they are there.
Try a crop round three huts on right and clone out clutter on this image
and see how that works.

I'll add only one thing to all the fabulous comments and modification suggestions. I would love to see the modified version. Great capture.

You have shown us a picture of part of the beach when it is quiet, Netta, and that's fine, but there are several possibilities here. You ask if you should have done anything different, but I think the question is, "COULD I have done anything different?"
1. Concentrate on the beach huts and try to get some perspective on them, emphasizing the shapes, colours and ladders. Try not to go for a straight-on shot, but use your creativity. Keep enough foreground sand in your frame for good effect. See this image to give you an idea, and this .
2. Try a portrait/vertical format which includes some sand, boats and beach huts, giving a sort of layered effect, and you can include some trees and sky too. This is the kind of thing I mean, or this .
3. Concentrate on the boats. When things are placed in a line, like the huts, it gives you a good start for an interesting composition. Get at the end of the line of boats and try for perspective. Even when there is a line of boats that are all alike, it can work, like this one. I don't think the covered boat is at all pleasing to the eye, so I'd try to avoid that one.
4. Take an even wider view, perhaps from one side, to include the sea. This way, you could probably avoid the trees. What you want to aim for is having everything in your frame appertaining to the seaside, if possible, so that's what it tells the viewer.
Just a few suggestions and ideas.

A lovely colourful beach scene Netta and some good advice from Pamela. I think you should allow members to modify them, this will enable you to see how you could improve your images and give you new ideas when you go out and about with your camera again
