Aperture: F/10

I spent the week in SoCal and on my very last day there, 3 hours before I got on the plane at LAX to head back to Atlanta, I managed to make it to the beach. I had about 5 shots I was kicking around for this challenge, but ended up going with this one.

I would've kicked myself if I hadn't got a photo in for this one, being I had a golden opportunity. Not many beaches in Atlanta. :-)

BTW, I HATE dust spots and basic editing!!! Grrrrrrrr......

Definitely has a very soCal feel to it - love the tones you chose, and like the choice of the net with the ocean behind. Nicely composed and exposed.

Hey jen, I am giving a comment to everyone who gave me one for the beach challenge and your the last one! So I apologize if its not too good, Lol. First thing I noticed was the horizon is abit tilted. i think I may have tried to move the horizon up or down because I knida feel it cuttin the photo in two. I really like the dpeth of field and sepia toning in the photo. Congrats on the fav, now lets go F-stops!!

Simple, light and nice photo but too much unbalanced empty space. Also compozition cutting photo on halfs by horizont moustly are not recomended.

There are no people playing. Without people you need a stronger element for the picture.

Very minimalistic, which I like a lot.

Nice tone to the image and good subject material, but... (1) the horizon isn't straight and (2) I think half the sky could have been cropped out. The image appears too static being divided in the middle and there is more interest in the sand than the plain sky.

The tilted horizon in the distance actually makes me dizzy looking at this. Might have considered strightening it? Nice tones for a B&W, though.
