    Hello! This is actually my first time posting a picture on TPF. Anyhow, my girlfriend and I recently vacationed in Mexico and this is a pic I snapped of the beach. All comments and critiques are welcomed.
    :D

    I like the colors and adding people usually works well. But these people look very random. They seem to just walk into the frame by accident.

    I meant to add them to the picture; thought maybe it would add a little more to the picture. Thanks for the input by the way. I'll try some without people in the frame next time.

    IMHO, there is WAY to much sky. Try this... use the scroll to crop your picture so that the horizon is right in the middle. It seems to me that gives more focus to the people. Yes it's a very weird Pano type crop but it gives the people "somewhere to walk" as the focus is refined to them and waves.

    Thanks! I'll try that.

    I see what you're saying. I'll work on re-cropping the picture and see what I come up with.

    Everyone is very helpful here. :D
