This was shot while on vacation in Maine. This was caused by volcanic activity many millennium ago. The focal length was 6.0 mm, and the exposure was -1.33. This is obviously not a beach, but it does fit the contest rules. Hope you like it.

Nice subject, may want to look at the framing or cropping to move the horizon line off center. With the storm clouds, it might make it a very strong image. Just my .02

Great job! I found the rocks to be a little boring after looking at them for very long. It's still a gorgeous shot, I can feel the storm moving in from the color of the sky and movement of the clouds, and color of the ocean. I really liked the pool of water in the foreground, the color of it, and the small gull sitting on the rock. Just not one of my favorites in this challenge, and I gave you a bit of a reduction in regard to meeting the challenge, because when I think of beach, I think of sand, not simply any shoreline. Many people in this challenge just presented water or shoreline, and to me, that does not a beach make. I'd have given this a 7 or an 8 for technical merit and overall beauty, but decided on a 6 for the reasons above.

Is that a gust front? The color contrasts are really beautiful

Nice juxtaposition of the textures of the rock and the water and sky. Nicely done!

One of many extrodinary seascapes in this challenge. If I shot this it would be hanging on my wall.

This is a beautiful setting. All it needs is a subject.

I like it but the clouds seem a little grainy.

I like the contrast of the golden colored rocks with the grey sky. Different sort of beach shot.

Beautiful location to shoot at, but it looks like the same weather I had when I was there 4 years ago!
