Very beautiful color and composition. I've always like these images that have the layered look.

I can't believe I missed such a beautiful photo. I love the soft pastel purples and blues - the color in this image is really powerful and helps to portray a mood. The shapes are another important element that keep me interested and make up a significant amount of the impact of the shot. Beautiful.

Incredible post processing on this. I love this final image, the colors are appear natural and fantastic. Thanks for including the original for the comparison

To see what sam's referring to, here's the unedited original of this shot:

Okay, I really gotta get a better handle on my post processing. Really well seen from start to finish. I guess sometimes when the weather doesn't co-operate, you've just gotta make your own vision.

Hehehe... bear- This is a great shot - but I don't know that you've achieved your aim of showing beauty in the mundane (I recall from pre-challenge discussions). A beach at sunset is inherently beautiful :).

Whatever the case this is a really beautiful shot - I'm sure the 640 size doesn't do it justice.

Cheers

Anders

Wonderfully vibrant colors, but still has a serene, peaceful feel to it. Beautiful it is. 9

Lovely colors, I like the footsteps in the sand and the minimalist look. Only thing is, it could have been rotated clockwise a tiny bit, I'm fussy about straight horizons...

Is the horizon horizontal?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Gorgeous evocative shot with very pleasing colors and "smoothness." The vertical points on the horizon line are minor, minor distraction points for me. The diagonal tracks tell a nice story, one of journey and passage. 9

that is beautiful, although I feel like I'm not seeing the best part of the scene. I'm not sure why, just wondering if a different composition might have captured the lines in smoother fashion. but i do like it...

No doubt that this is beautiful. Love the patterns in the sand and water and the footprints.

Beautiful indeed - have visited Truro often, never seen it like this though! The composition is good with the zig zag sand leading the eye in. Only one slight winge is that the horizon is slightly off horizontal to me, which is a bit of a shame, good luck
