Here is a nice white sand beach in Male Nord atoll, Maldives. The photo was shot at 12 am, no filters.

I've just looked at all 3 photos you have posted to TE - please try to get the horizon straight. A slanting horizon looks particularly bad in this kind of sea/beach shot. This is easily corrected using many photo editing software packages, here's a free one: www.gimp.net

I like this picture but I agree with the horizon. I have posted a workshop, tell me if you find it better now.
I also find the sand a little overexposed.

I wish I could move there instead of my winter weather here in Poland.
You made me dream about it.

Nice composition, but it needs a little technical work. The skyline is definitely off center and the sand looks overexposed, no way the sand is as white as that. Just keep practicing :)

nice work but you needed a straight horizon and there's a little bit of noise. keep working!

I like very much the atmosphere of this picture, the fact that it's almost empty and it's so simple and peaceful, only tiny nuances in the sky and the sea, and a discreet human presence.
I agree with the previous comment about the tilted horizon, and also the image is quite noisy (in the sky for instance). I try a WS to correct that, hope you like it.

This picture has the effect of making you "wish you were there" The blue of the sky and the white of the sand just combine to give an image of paradise. I've posted a workshop using Neatimage to smooth the sky.

apart from the horizon, which is a big no no in photography, I think this is a beautiful image, it has a graphic quality, also you've captured a great sense of 'space', (*,*)

c'est une jolie place, mais plusieurs points me dérangent quand à la qualité de l'image : déjà l'horizon penche violemment sur la droite, la partie de sable visible en bas à droite est surexposée, et le rendu de l'image est fortement bruité. Bref je croche pas trop, même si l'endroit donne envie, surtout quand je regarde par la fenêtre aujour'dhui
