A great expanse, apparently pristine, and quite a successful landscape with a strong point of interest in the fore-, both visually and emotionally. The cooler tones caress the fish, and the tide has left a hem of maritime debris from here to there. (I gave it a 6, but never got around to comment),

I really like how there's a line in the sand, separating death from life so to speak. Well seen and captured.

I like the choice of tones in the sky, gives it an underwater feel, very cool find.

wow, took me a few moments to figure out what i was looking at...
i like the contrariness of the serene background with your title about the "cruel" sea and the fact that i'm looking at a dead fish. just shows how nature can be deadly dangerous and the next second it's just calm seeming innocent like a child after stealing candy...;P
the other thing i see is that line of sand, that plays its role by seperating death from life, man from nature, it shows us our boundries...
just so much to find in this shot, really like it! 8
