I guess I will be a contrarian this time - I usually agree with the others, but with this image I wouldn't change a thing. There is an element of loneliness that would be lost by eliminating the extra space - it lends to an atmosphere of solitude on an empty beach in the late afternoon or early evening. I think it is a great image as is. Well done!

This is great. Thanks all.

I love to hear what works - or not - with different people. My take; if one can judge a scene as the intended viewer would (whatever that may be), it would help temenddously with composition.

Other times, like this, it is having the shot walk into view with good early morning light. Thanks again,

Garry

As a first time photographer as well - this is a brilliant shot. Really, really nice!

Well done mate

Your first shot is absolutely a winner in every aspect. There is good isolation of the main subject from the background, the shot shows activity and use of the long shadow adds more depth to the composition. Great shot! Robert

Oh, and the focus is perfect...
