No, this is not a lake :-) it's the narrow sound between Sweden and Denmark.

I love the detail in the dock and the flip flops. I really wish you could have held the detail in the sky in the background. I still enjoy this shot.

Nice shot. I like how the railing is disappearing into the water.

Very nice angles and POV...I like how you've placed the primary subject in the foreground . The grayish tones make it look a bit cold, yet the water still seems very inviting. Well done!

Great composition, and the single red color is amazing.

I like the composition very much. Not sure the selective desat was necessary, but that's your preference. Pity about the (boat?) on the horizon since I feel that it' doesn't add to the composition but distracts from it.

I like the way this shot tells a story. More than just a seascape. Sorry, nothing helpful to add. Good Luck.

even though the horizon isnt in the right place, i do like the picture.

I like the simplicity of this photo. I think I would have cropped it just above the hand rail as I find the sky and object (near horizon)a bit distracting. Good Shot.

Great imagery.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

That looks like a lake to me, but I love the sat of red and the composition with the steps and the flip flops. No points off cause it might be an ocean setting I've never seen. Here, it's sand and waves. LOL 8

I like how you almost created a story just with one picture. It really added distinctness amass all the plain-just-ocean pictures.
