Everything just right. This is a splendid take on the imagine ads - sharp punch and crunch. The model, her suit and hat (an original hat) are a great counterbalance to the strong linear blues.

Just saw the comment about the tire prints - I think they're perfect here. They add another horizontal texture to go with the wet line (which looks to have footprints), the water line, the foam, the waves. And the red and her perfect pose create an element of order, of calm. A beautiful shot!

You know, i saw this during the challenge and my first thought was that this looked like an ad in a magazine. I loved the red against all the muted ocean-side colors. Now all she needs is a drink with a little umbrella and a cabana boy lol.

This is wonderful. I love the human element to give that wistful, peaceful sense of awe one gets while sitting by the ocean with its breeze, and the sounds. What a great photo.

Great contrast of the blues and greens with the red.

I think it would have worked better if you would have taken the image from the lower point.

good technicals, (1/3 rule, straight horizon) nicely processed. Still something is missing from the overall feel of the image & I feel it is due to the overall light quality. 6
