Is this Lagos? I think I recognize the beach! ;-) Lovely. Spent a very nice summer vacation there 2 years ago. And your picture just takes me back there. Good job!

Great job! This is like looking at a traveler's postcard. I loved the colors and the perspective, but especially the color of the water. I got tired of looking at the typical northern deep blue ocean, and the typical 'caribbean blue' of alot of the photos in this challenge. The deep green is a breathtaking change of pace! I like the clarity of the photo, and the fact that I can see the movement in the sand, even at this distance. This is one of my favorites, so I'm giving it a 9. The only thing that looks odd, is the dark spot in the sand between the two cliffs at the bottom of the photo. Maybe you could have gotten that out of there to allow a continuous feel to that area of the beach. You should sell this to the Portugal Dept of Tourism... lol

Very nice, crystal clear sharpness. The eye is simply drawn from the bottom of the image to the top. Beautifully exposed.

Stunning composition. The people on the beach give a sense of scale to the shot. The only thing I would have like to see is a little more contrast in the sky, but that is a very minor point for such a wonderful shot. Nice job!
