Oh, this is a beauty!
Your viewpoint, shadows, setting sun and spreading colourful reflections, on the wet sand, make this THE most romantically moody shot!
You have composed the scene so well, the line of groynes at a slight angle, standing like sentinels, watching the beach. I love how the sun is just peeping between two of the uprights.
Thank you for sharing this,

Lovely work Brian! The colours are amazing and, as always, the composition so well thought-through with the sun in exactly the right place.
Have a nice day

A charming and seductive composition. Cleverly composed and with beautiful light and colours. Photography at its best!

Ooooh this is lovely. The pastel colours, the silvery reflections of the pools and the perspective of the groynes, are al so stunning. Great work shooting into the sun like that and still getting such an evenly balanced exposure. Terrific work, congrats.
PS: Thanks for your kind wishes about my mamma :)

Hi Brian. Brilliant exposure which renders so richly the various shades of blue. Composition wise, the wooden posts in silhouette seem to separate a cooler world from a warmer one, at least in terms of colour. I like your placement of our star between the tallest posts. Wonderful clarity.Regards. Klaudio.

hi brian, love the capture of the sun set between the "goynes" and the reflection on the beach. A great well composed shot.

This is a very original photo, beautiful and peaceful composition, very nice warm colors, even blue is warm at sunset

another masterful composition!I really enjoy the way the cold,blue shades mix with warm,golden shades of setting sun.Colors and contrast between them help you to create so unique,dreamy atmosphere of the scene.Other thing I like are these groynes and how they divide picture into two parts.

your timing was spot on,the suns pink rays across the wet sand are a big plus adding warmth to a lovely early morning shot.
Really well composed and technically perfect.A super effort.

La lumière et les couleurs sont vraiment magnifiques. Superbe photo qui montre encore une fois ton sens artistique et ta maîtrise totale de la technique photographique.

wow! gorgeous! The composition is excellent with the sun setting right in between the groynes but what struck me most here was the control over exposure. A really great piece of work.

Another artistic capture from the beach. You've captured a spectacular moment of the day with perfect light and amazing colors. Well done.

Gorgeous photography - a real stunner! The wet sand has a silvery sheen which is lovely and draws my eye through the weathered poles to the setting sun.
I am sorry that I didn't comment on this one earlier but I am slipping behind on TE again!
Best wishes, Ann
