Unbelievably strong winds here gave me an opportunity to capture something different. Stock standard comp, but the blowing sand adds something different in my opinion. Hope the voters think so too :)

Wow. Just wow. Absolutely phenomenal control of light, shadow, reflection, and motion.

If I had one suggestion, I feel I wish it had a wider aspect ratio on the crop. It feels a little confined.

There are always a hatful of beach/sun shots in the free studies - almost to the point of cliché. That said, this is by far and away the best I have seen for some time. Great leading lines, beautifully exposed, and the motion generated by the wind is sublime. I would like to see this on the front page.

I really enjoy how the driftwood points the eye towards the sun. That helps bring this scene together.

Nice job...the wind across the sand and waves creates good visual interest.

Wow. Stunning shot. Wonderful texture and tones, and incredible exposure range. Fabulous composition. This should do quite well.
