Nice scene, but the angle is uninteresting. Shooting from beach level rather than the bluffs above (if access was available) would improve this a lot. Focus is a bit soft, and you've lost some detail in the rocks there. Try boosting the exposure to bring out more detail -- in-camera meters always seems to underexpose scenes like this because of the amount of light reflecting off the water. 4

Nice colour in the ocean but the sharpness lets this down and it's a tad boring.

It's too bad this rock wasn't actually in the surf. I think it could have scored a little better if there was more 'splash' from the water.

The rocks in the picture go right through the middle of the shot. I think this picture could be stronger if the bottom part was cropped out, anchoring the rocks in the lower right-hand corner. Otherwise, great colors.
