I just love these sort of beach scenes - where the waves coming and going show as a sort of heavy textured mist. Looks like a special effect, but dipping the toe in the mist will tell you otherwise.

I have no-where like this, so cannot take this sort of pix - shame

Beautiful result, deserved award!

Wonderful image! Usually, I don't particularly appreciate borders but this time, I think it really adds to the overall image. Good job - 8!

Very captivating. Wonder how much more wow could be created with a lower perspective and a higher horizon line.

A nice quiet rhythm, interrupted a bit by the heavy border. A gentler border would suit.
