Default The rainforest meets the ocean

So guys, I took this shot up at Cape Tribulation in Australia, there is this huge beautiful rainforest, and just a couple of meters out, there is amazing beaches.

So I just basicly walked like 10meters out from the djungel and ended up here.
What do you guys think?

Very nice composition.

On the crummy monitor I'm using at the moment it looks like there are a lot of blown highlights, but as long as you see detail in the clouds and sand then you're in good shape.

Nice place. Tilted horizon and somewhat soft.

A beautiful location and I like what you did with the composition. Makes me want to be sitting at that spot just soaking up the sun, and drinking in the view. The horizon does look a bit tilted, but looks very small - if it were mine I'd use a guide in photoshop to measure and make sure. I sometimes have trouble figuring out what's really straight when you have elements like trees and terrain mixed with water - it sometimes fools the eye (piers can do that too).

While there's a certain amount of blown-out clouds, it looks natural and about what I would expect with such a shot. It doesn't look harsh on my monitor and if it were mine, I wouldn't worry about it.

All that beach, all that sun, and not a sunbather or beach umbrella in sight. Hang onto that shot, it's bound to be a collector's item.

Thanks guys! The pic looks sharp in full size. And as far as if its straight or not, I cant really tell either. As you said mtngal, hard to tell when its mixed with the terrain and etc. I think it looks straight, thats why I didn't bother adjusting it either. But I take 99,9 % of my photos just holding the camera, (without a tripod). So it could be a bit out of balance =)

very nice capture, nice and balance shot, good uses of the low horizon and big sky. It works really well.
