I like it! Of course, living on the Gulf biases me somewhat. Minimalism is a nice approach to a seascape. I found your pic a little "flat" or hazy, so I gave it a little contrast. Of course it could just be my monitor..

Thanks Hawg. I never notice how flat it is until there is something to compare it to. I think for this shot though Id probably go with some kind of artsy plugin. Like a watercolor, oil painting.

I used Topaz on a dup layer then used the eraser to remove the effect over the foamy white part of the wave so it didnt look too abnormal.
