Simple but nice. I like the contrasting colors of the sand and sky. The bush draws your eye to that spot in the photo.

Almost surreal. I think cropping a little off the top would help the comp flow better, but it's still a great image.

Love the detail. The horizon is slightly off though.

I LOVE the complimentary colors here, and the rule of thirds put into action. Usually crooked horizon lines bother me (even when it's only a centimeter off, like this one), but I think it works here - the picture has a natural grace and a strange beauty. 10.

Nice simple image. I think I would have tried to frame the bush in the lower left quadrant with the shadow going to the middle of the image. The adjustments on the blue make it a little unnatural and because how clear the day was I may have moved the horizon up to include more sand. Good Luck. 6.

Very simplistic and yet strong lighting and shawdows as well as excellent colors.

Ultra wicked! I'm sure this would make a sweet large-size print!

I have a book that has a photo very similar to this on the cover. I love this photo with the bold colours and lines/shapes created by the composition.

I can almost feel the texture of the sand. great contrasting colours, and the bush makes it complete.
