Simple shot all in thirds - not enough sun but there was some surf - hence the title. Levels to maximise contrast, pushed saturation overall and on blues and yellows plus lighten the latter two. NeatImage to remove some noise from the sky.

Congrats on a good finish... I had hoped this one would finish higher... This is one of the few compositions of 'two' I have seen lately that really worked well for me. In many cases, compositions of even numbers of subjects don't seem to work so well, but this one is excellent :)

Certain images come to mind when you think of the seasons, and this is one of them.

seen this shot a lot but i still like it. the chairs are a little too far apart i think. you might also back off some as it seems almost too dissected right now. and show either more sand or more sky so they arent so centered that way.

This shot makes me feel like I'm right in the scene. I like the simple composition and the colors. Only thing I wish is the sky wasn't overcast. The image makes me feel sad like the picture was more indicative of the end of summer (no people around and the overcast skies). Good work.

Just add the Corona and its ready for Ad print. (and maybe even out the fabric on the right chair at the bottom and darken it a tad to match the left)
