I recently did a road trip south of Perth to catch the Margaret River Pro surfing competition. The highlight of the trip definatley wasn't the surfing competition but the amazing coastline and National Parks that cover the West Coast of Australia.

Hi Damon - I like this photo. The sky is an amazing azure, and the clouds very dramatic. A great blend of water, sand and sky. Nice composition too. This is the Indian Ocean at its best, as I know it. Regards,

Heavenly colours Damon. I would have used the adjective pristine, if it wasn't for those innumerable footprints.But then who is looking at that when the colours of the sea and sky beckon. cheers, Klaudio

Did you use a polariser? I agree a little too saturated or contrasty. Wonky horizon should be corrected as well. Lovely composition though with the two figures on the left walking into the shot.

really great view you captured. Very good strong colours specially the colour of the ocean. I like this two surfers in the right looking for a great wave. Your composition couldn't be more perfect !!!

It's the composition I like about this photo (the colours are a bit too overdone for me). The surfers walking along the leading line of the beach, with absolutely no surf. Shifting the horizon off the middle of the frame (it breaks the image in half a bit too much) might improve the composition slightly.
Well done, and thanks for sharing it!

Love the original composition. Great mix of beach, ocean and sky. Easy to see why you have enjoyed settling in to the west coast. regards, nib

great shot damo! what a perfect exposure. how did you get so much contrast in the sky? the tone of the sky is a perfect complement to the colours and depth of the water and sand. great job.

i really intrested in your shot and also agree with the others about the contrast , and have a question , did you use poliriser or the clouds have changed by the software ? also i became so glad to find another canon TLb on TE :)

Very nice presentation of the beach. The two surfers complete the scenery nicely and make the photo interesting. Love the sky and the clouds. Well done.
