    Ive only recently become interested in photography and started to think about my shots before I take them. I know this picture isnt anything special but any comments or critisisms would be fantastic!

    The photo was taken on a Welsh beach with a Olmpus C-5060 WZ camera and converted to black and white in photoshop.

    I know this may seem silly..... but when you take a picture such as this, try to make the rocks talk and tell a story in the picture. The focus of this shot is the waterline and therefore not really interesting.

    I would recommend getting down low to the ground (don't just point the camera down) and placing the water at the top 1/3 of the frame.

    I would like to see this scene when you go back and reshoot it from an on-your-stomach position and only include the shore as foreground less than 1/4 of the total view and include just a little horizon.

    Great camera.... good detail, good saturation, great camera.

    I think you can get a great photo from this view. I think this can be done with either a long exposure shot, and/or zoom way in on the water-rocks split.

    There are exactly 983,203,204 beach/horizon pictures that have been posted in this forum. Thank you Chips for thinking outside the Horizon box. :)

    I dissagree with Bog, I think the contrast between the smooth, moving water and the harsh still rocks is pretty cool.

    thanks very much! i do agree that maybe more emphasis should have been placed on the waves crashing on the rocks. It would probably make the picture more exciting.

    thanks for your comments
