"Alone on Sandy Beach"

Lost in a quiet moment,
peace and tranquility persuades.
A cool relaxing morning,
while the ocean serenades.
Slipping off her shoes
to feel the soothing sand,
She sits down to meditate
with simple solace in hand.
Pondering what the day may bring
or what lessons life will teach.
Time stands still as she reflects,
Alone on Sandy Beach.

Poem by Jeff Sasek

As Carter pointed out WOW! I don't notice the water so much as am drawn into the image wondering what she's thinking, trying to decide something maybe just enjoying the smoke, maybe making her grocery list in her head, thankful to have few minutes of solitude - very nicely done.

Wow! This image certainly scores high in that regard (the WOW factor). I love the composition and model placement. One of the few (hopefully constructive) criticisms I have is that the water seems a bit washed out. You might try selectively reducing backlighting and/or increasing the contrast there to bring out some of the detail of the water. Otherwise, I think the coloration of the sand & the model's pose/attire are superb. She seems so immune to anything that is possibly going on elsewhere. Really nice shot! Congrats!

Just my 2 cents...
