Awesome job here, lovely tones, great composition, and a very nice job with the high contrast, really nicely done shot, would actually have liked to see this score even higher, maybe 6.9+

Wow, what a brilliant photograph.
This would be worth of a huge canvas print on a plain white wall.
It looks like a still from a movie almost, loads of character and depth.
Love the toning, the composition and the subjects.
Love everything.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

This is a brilliant photograph, I love the toning and exposure on it. Black and white was absolutely the right choice here.

You timed this photograph brilliantly. The waves, the line between sand and water, the pose of the mother and child, and the complete absence of sky all come together to make a near perfect photograph.

If this were not a Basic Editing challenge, I would suggest cloning away the dry sand in the top right corner as well as just below that on the left. Since they are lighter than the rest of the background, they do tend to disrupt the flow and pull the eye away from the center of the image.

Congratulations on a brilliant photograph, and a very well deserved top twenty finish.

like the B&W and the abstract patter of the waves -- nice balance to the peeps - one of my ribbon picks
