I actually took this photo for the Black and white landscape contest, but we had a week of rain, and with us being a say ahead of just about everybody, I got muddled with the deadline and missed it.

This location has amazing potential....sadly it was not captured in this image. Your biggest problem here is time of day. You clearly shot this mid-day in full bright sun and in the process created extremely harsh contrast and shadows, not to mention overexposed the white rocks in the foreground. The black bush a branch, twig /pipe in the lower left corner take the eye immidiately away from the rest of the image and focus it there on the "pseudo shovel". You also overexposed the beach on the other side of the bank. Complete lack of clouds in the sky make it also a bit dull. I would highly suggest (if you can of course) getting to this location eaither during ealry morning or late afternoon and shoot it during the golden hour. Perhaps try some ND filters and some slower exposure. The way it stands, can't do more than a 3. Sorry.
