Greetings from the Critique Club!

Tom! What a fabulous image!

I love the details that you've captured in what must have been a difficult situation.
I agree with the commenter who suggested pumping up that wood.

The scene could hold its own very well without the wood, but if you include it, it really needs to steal the scene. A bit of dodging in post processing could have made it really POP!

I really love the dips in the sand. So much detail! Add in the sunset and I see how you scored so well in a Free Study.

Well done! This is a capture to be proud of, Tom!

Lots to see in the foreground, but I get the impression that's about all there is to see for many miles.

Top 10. An 8 from me. The log's color is a little flat. A different processing to make it pop out would make it a price winning shot
