The incoming tide wets and polishes the sand around the weathered sea defences on West Wittering beach in West Sussex, England.

the reflections of the posts in the wet sand are lovely,I think it helps that the posts are of uneven height, helping to break the sky line and add extra interest.
The light is just gorgeous,really well captured.
All the best Les.

Beautiful shot taken with a great sense of depth. The soft water reflections make the view so interesting and attractive. Well done! TFS.

Simple, colorful, luminous, nice sky
Not so convinced by the long shadow at left
Best regards, have a nice evening

A classic, Brian! But when it's with such a light, it's always a pleasure.

questo soggetto l'avevi già proposto da altre angolazioni, ma a mio giudizio questa è la migliore delle tre per la composizione, ma soprattutto per la luce che scolpisce i pali e per i bei riflessi sulla battigia.
Cielo e mare inoltre sono stupendi e la tua tecnica li ha valorizzati al massimo dando loro una luminosità ed una nitidezza senza pari, e aiutano i colori del cielo a dominare la parte alta della scena.
Ciao e buona serata

You've made the most from this mini-series of photos along this stretch of beach. Every composition has created an interesting and different perspective and has given them individual differences that make each one unique. I think I like this one the most...so far anyway, do you have more coming I hope? :) The wide angle, reflections and patterns from the washed up shells is what catches my attention here. Brilliant capture, thanks for sharing these.

Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition truly pleased me!
I love that sky!
I really enjoyed the details of that wet sand of the lower fg (reflections, wet sand and colorful rochs)!

I don't have a "wow" reaction very often but this terrific image produced one. The light, color and sharpness are all splendid. But it's the composition that really scores, with so many (I count ten) almost diagonal bands of hue and texture. It's an image that asks the viewer to keep on looking and absorbing the visual elements and the mood Great job.

Très belle utilisation de la lumière dans cette excellente composition où tu as su parfaitement exploiter cette rangée de pieux et ce beau ciel.

A true picturesque capture with the vertical logs on the beach. Well seen.

Very impressive, great diagonal composition, beautiful light and reflections, perfect photo
annjackman (13177) 2013-02-21 9:47
Gorgeous light giving that fabulous sheen on the sand. A strong diagonal line of wooden posts balanced by some lovely clouds makes a perfect composition.
Kind Regards, Ann

Great image - great light, great sky and good use of the poles and their reflection to create the depth and line. Pin sharp throughout. Stunning.
HimalAnda (5610) 2013-02-21 11:41
The light is nice, the mirror effect on the wet sand is beautiful too.

Simple, but effective compositon. I love it!!
chawax (14870) 2013-02-22 12:01
Very beautiful ligt on this one too ! I love how the pots make a perspective line that adds depth to the composition.

A picture with a lots of lines. Not only from the
wooden weir, but also it's shadows and the lines
in the sand (from the retreating water)and in even
the sky. All of these lines creates a lots of
depth and makes the picture exciting. The light
management and the composition are excellent.
