All the shots you have posted do a great job of what I aspire to, but rarely succeed at: placing an interesting foreground against a great background. Encouraging!

Me gusta la imagen que presentas, aunque como opinión personal, creo que le favorecería un formato cuadrado. Un saludo.

The shot is good, but to spice up the first floor interesting I increase contrast and brightness down to have a more dramatic image.
The sky is big, I would like more detail on the beach

You have nice light, great color, and an interesting scene; I hope it's not necessary to "fire up photoshop" to salvage something from that combination. Roll Eyes

Being an armchair photographer for the moment, I like the sweeping water in the foreground, and then I see that piece of land on the left that is the terminus of the streambank that is just barely out of view where you are standing.  That makes me wonder if it would be possible and beneficial to include that land all the way to the bottom of the frame.  You'd then have a sweeping form of both the water and the land taking the viewer's eye out into the far distance of the photograph.

I think I'll definatly head back to the location and get a wider shot at some point, I did try a few spots further upstream but wasn't really liking the view the bank wasnt that interesting. Being sand the shape of the banks changes quite a bit so I shall keep checking for when it looks a bit more interesting.

Thanks for the suggestions though, always appreciated!

Here's another shot from the same evening.

I'll probably redo this one someday as a few parts from it annoy me.

LOVE this second shot! I love the motion in it, makes me feel like I'm being swept out to sea.

Thanks for the comments Cheesy

Got a print done of the first image on Glossy Fuji Crystal Archive paper, came out quite well.

Going to include it in some of the prints i'm going to be selling in a local place soon.

I love both images and they are quite different. The first one is more tranquil, quite, smooth, serene and the second is dynamic almost menacing compared to the first image.
Bravo.
