That simple photo gives me the feeling of being next to the sea. As you propably undesrtood from the color of the sea, this one is taken at Myrtos beach.
I had big trouble of saving this one to be less than 200k. I had to decrease a lot the quality to catch the size limit.

This is just mean ;-) It's so cold and grey here right now!
I like the simplicity of the shot and the electric blue. The wave is a nice touch.

ενώ οι Βόρειοι φίλοι μας του ΤΕ βάζουν τοπία και μάλιστα χιονισμένα εμείς νομίζω καλά κάνουμε και βάζουμε αυτές τις εικόνες που είναι γεμάτες θάλασσα.Τι κι αν τελείωσε το Καλοκαίρι.Η φωτογραφία σου είναι πολύ ωραία με εξαιρετικό φως και χρώμα.Αν δε, υπήρχε και κάποιος ή κάποιοι στην υπέροχη αυτή παραλία, τότε νομίζω θα ήταν τέλεια.

The composition and colours are beautiful, but I have to say that I would have prefered a less ominously dark sky - was that a post-processing decision or did it really look like that?

I like the waves and the colours of the sea!
Composition is perfect!

Very very simple..yet very very good as well! Top blue tones, with slight graduations from top to bottom, untill the pebles from Myrtos beach are reached. I wondered where this photo was taken..and had to smile when I saw it was taken on Myrtos beach. It makes me think..ofcourse. I've been there and have seen the lovely colours that are present there too..so this was a nice reminder on that beautiful beach. Thank you for that. Contrast is fine, composition and POV too! I believe there is a bit of vignette in the corners, nothing too bad though.
I can imagine the struggle you had to get it below 200kb. And this is visible, the photo contains a lot of detail, on the sea, but more over on the pebbles, and that is complex and hard to put in 200kb, if you have the actual photo as big as some 750 pixels width. I see you have not even used the 800px, which was a good idea. Maybe 700kb + border would have done the trick, but let's see through the artifacts, a large print for on the walls would do well and would not have this problem.
1/500th was a fine shutterspeed, a good freeze on the waves is the result, I like it!
Congratulations and regards,

Very nice. Simple but very eye-catching picture, because of the different tones of the blue. Then I like a lot the frozen wave.
