Took advantage of some good weather and hit the beach. Not sure if this works but here it is.

it almost works for me.. its actually pretty good..and can tell you put a lot of thought into the composition.. so good job..

maybeit could have been a little better with a little more angle to it.. and i am not sure that the foreground is the block of wood its sitting on.. did you try this shooting it slightly from the side, maybe so its coming out of the bottom left corner of the frame..

the second one works well for me as it captures the wave as it comes into the beach.. imo that is a great shot.. the mossy wood contrasts nicely with the beach and waves.. nice work man!!

The only issue I have with the first one is that the top of the forground post isn't in focus: and yes I realise that would be next to impossible to achieve without specialist kit!

I like the second and third, but I'm still drawn back to the first I think...

Composition wise, the first and third work for me. What would make the shot a whole lot better is if you took the shot under different conditions - morning or evening lighting and a wind that is blowing directly out to sea.

John Maddock - I keep coming back to the first myself. I think it is beacuse it is not an orientation that I typically shoot for a beach scene, ie portrait vs ladscape. Having only a Canon S60 there are some shots that I just can't get all the way hence the focus isssues. One alternative I suppose would be be a telefoto aftermarket lense then some liberal cropping.

JohnReid - I am really just starting to spend time really trying to understand how to take a good photo rather than a snapshot. Really only since my first digital camera a year ago. One thing that I have learned is that lighting is everything. These shots were taken in the afternoon on a somewhat cloudy day. I would love to be able to get back to that spot and get some more shots at sunrise. More action in the waves would go a long way to improve this composition as well.

Hards80- As always thanks for taking a look at these and giving your opinion. I know most everyone here is very busy and I really do appreciate the comments.
