I like it.  It's a little softer maybe than what I would have gone for, but it draws the eye in right away, and it's very simple, almost abstract...

It definitely draws the eye right away, and has some interest, but I feel pulled out of the bottom of the image by the really contrasy foreground--perhaps the sky could be given a little more visual weight, so that it may hold its own?

First impressions - interesting, but I'm a bit unsure about the foreground. Perhaps a little too heavy? What about the following crop? It loses some of the texture of the sand, but still retains the effect of distance, shape and texture and movement of the water.

In regards to the appearance of the sand I add this, its volcanic so I didnt burn it to make it darker.  This "beach" comes right off the volcanic island of ometepe in lake nicaragua.  


thanks for the suggestions.

I really like the way this crop changes the image--my eye sticks in it a lot more, and looks for more detail.

I like that crop too. Alternatively, if you wanted to preserve the interesting foreground detail you could crop it like this:

Bingo!

I like the white pebbles in the foreground, the cloud in the background, and the fact that the horizon is far from the middle. This version works best for me.
