I like all elements in this image All are very strong Particularly like the wave action and light

I think the image would be even stronger with something of the bottom I like the part of the waves with the strong light !!! Excellent image !!!!

Thanks Alfred
I usually trim off one or two of the nearest waves but not on this occasion.
Here is a re-edit.

Interesting image Ian, I like the low angle and the atmosphere here. Actually I prefer the 1st post, the inclusion of the FG waves convey the feeling that the viewer is standing right there on the beach himself.

I understand Vincent's reasoning on the first image and Alfred's suggestion on the crop. I would prefer the first if the FG was in focus. Being OOF is distracting IMO and the crop helps to correct that and make it stronger.

Thanks Alfred & Robert
This has been very educational in seeing views thro' others eyes.
In retrospect a narrower aperture would probably have been better.
