Composition is good and I prefer this one to your previous upload. However I feel that the white light components of the picture are a little too strong. How you overcome this I do not know (I'm no technical expert) Maybe somebody else can give advice on that.

Thank you all for comments and clicks! Stuart,
Thanks for pointing that out about the strong lighting. I also felt the same I did tried to subdue highlights apparently not much success Smile. I might try using ND graduated filters in diagonal position in my future visit to that location again. Much appreciated.

Perfect time of day to still have enough light for the scene, yet it is still a night scene. The waves and spray are a nice touch.

Good balance of light Simon detailing the built up part of your scene beautifully and all is complimented by that wonderfully detailed sky. Excellent exposure.
