Another gorgeous shot. I like the stormier one better, though. This is very postcard perfect (aside from the aforementioned clouds), but the other one is art.

Great shot. Definitely my idea of beauty also!

Beautiful landscape, I love the details in the waves. Only problem is the blown highlights in the clouds. There is a way of fixing blown out skies I found on the site, by blending a dark and a bright layer (//www.dpchallenge.com/forum.php?action=read&FORUM_THREAD_ID=146119)
apologies if you've already done it or something similar! Good luck

This view incorporates so much that there is not enough detail to really hold my interest.

That is a GORGEOUS photograph. It makes us poor folks who live in "scenery challenged" places REALLY jealous. I promise not to marke you down for the jealous factor -- even tho it's tempting (just kidding). You just can't get much more beautiful than that!!! I love the tiny little horses/cows in the grass. It gives you a perspective on how grande that scene really is! 10

The light, certainly on the beach and sea and trees, is very fine: a pity you couldn't control it in the clouds a little more. The composition is a tricky one to judge, I would think: I'm not certain you've made the right choices - to my eye, the strongest element of this scene is the sweep of darkness from the far headland roudn through image left and down to the foreground, but it's become cut off in the foreground in order to maintain the entirety of the clouds; that darker area should, i think, have enclosed the idyllic-looking beachfront, given it a feel of protection, and enhanced the image considerably.

Picture postcard scene - pity about the blown highlights in the clouds - still very attractive.
