Not particularly interesting.

Crop a little tighter, removing some off both top & bottom, to fill more of the frame with the shell & the rippled sand. That part of the photo is lovely.

I like the texture in this. The sand looks warm. A change from all the snow shots from our northern members!

Great shot. The crop is just right. It gives the artistic flair that really takes this shot to another level for me. Too close a crop would have made this image fairly average, but the room for the background to fade way is just right. Great job.

great idea, but it may have been better if you would have filled the frame a little more.

I love the untouched quality of it, like it is emerging from the sand. Nice shot...
