Hi Andrew

Wow, what a superb sky...! love the pastels and sweeping clouds. You have visited a beautiful spot here Andrew. The sea is very nice too but are you sure 3 second exposure is correct? Maybe 0.3? I am asking because the wave looks a little too defined for 3 seconds. My only nit is that the rocks lack a bit of something, sharpness and contrast I think..

This is dreamy, Andre!! Love those cotton candy clouds, the whole image seems quite surreal.
I agree that adding some local contrast to the rocks up front will just anchor the image a bit better.
