Youre a funny guy Eddie. Well with a name like Eddie is that a surprise? Nice shot but I dont like the out of focus foreground. Id prefer the waves out of focus since they are moving anyway.

Thanks guys....



Bynx, I'm trying to expand my understandings :O



I'd call this a forced perspective offering.



This too, of one of the many logs of driftwood forced up on our beach after the terrible snow, then rain storms we've been having this year in the Pacific Northwest.

I like both of them. The first one's OOF foreground doesn't bother me that much, though the bokeh (think that's what it's called) is fairly harsh, typical for sand and pine needles etc. I'd be tempted to blur it a bit, but not sure it would make enough difference (it's too easy to get carried away with that and have it look completely fake). Maybe try cropping the very bottom some, so there's less of it. But I'm not sure that I'd bother as I like the picture as is.

Just a different crop, as suggested already, fixes that for me. There are many possibilities.

Great picture!

Ya that works for me Alan. Attention is taken away from foreground and placed on the nice water texture and of course the shells.
