    The second one has a mood appeal to it.

    The last one seems over sharpened.

    Not too bad. Can't say I particularly like them, but I think you would benefit from some flash to fill in the heavy shadowing; you've lost a fair bit of detail in most of the shots.

    I agree, the shadows are way too harsh, not a whole ton you can do about that besides going under a tree, fill flash, or reflectors. Easiest thing is to wait until just after sunset... thats the best time!

    The hard, directional light makes the sand look great and really brings out the texture. It also makes for moody but not very flattering light for your GF.

    Looking at your photo and light condition, I will strongly suggest using a silver reflector to minimize the harsh shadow.

    Cheers :)
