    Nice first use of new camera. Lovely light.
    Composition might have wanted to include all of the closest rock and just a tad more beach on the right, though.
    Well, that's my feeling about it. Others may think differently.

    Thank you!

    The crop was a personal decision. I did not like the rock in the bottom right or the foam texture in the bottom left:

    My thinking on the shoreline was that less on the right would make the viewer more likely to follow the leading lines to the left. Maybe my logic was off.

    I agree with LaFoto , I like the second image better.

    Nice arc for the eye to follow, nice light and I like the foam against the blurred water. Good work!

    Very good light and exposure and very good textures in water foam and rocks. Only one thing I would try, maybe you already did - I cannot say from the image itself: apply lens correction in Lightroom for example, as for me it seems like the horizon line is a little bit curved. Also, i like second version better.

    Thanks for sharing! Great job!

    nice shot with the new camera! I like it a lot. Did you use a filter with that?

    Thanks, I applied some lens correction to the second version. It totally slipped my mind!:

    Thanks! I used a 3-stop LEE GND filter. I am still deciding whether to pick up a 14-24 but the ability to use filters on my 16-35 is hard to give up and I can't justify two UWA lenses.

    Any other tips or feedback from the other insomniacs out there?
