Should this be rotated 90 degrees anti clockwise. Doesn't look right as presented. The highlights are on edges and thus in the wrong place. You needed some better angled lighting on the sand/mud itself to give the textures some punch.

There's loads of scope for taking pics of textures in wet sand but it works best when you have a strong composition - some form of shape or pattern which you can organise the shot around. this will help the eye to make sense of the pic.

Best wishes

Hello, Wajid. Living on an island, I have sand all around me, and can understand why you should enjoy capturing it with your camera. Something like this would be classed as an abstract and, as such, it doesn't really matter if it isn't obvious what it is. What you do need, however, are some interesting patterns, a play of light and shadow, and few distractions, but it can also be a good idea to include something like a few pebbles, a bit of wood or something for the eye to focus on. I can't tell if this is just patterns in the sand made by the water, or if the water is actually running across it. I think the left two thirds of the image could make an interesting abstract if it had a bit more contrast, so getting a good play of light on it would enhance it enormously, showing the dips and patterns. I don't know if you converted this to mono, but I'd like to see a bit of colour in it. It also makes an abstract-style image more interesting if you get your lines of the water flow on the diagonal.
