Nauset beach on Cape Cod.... It's on the section of shoreline that faces the Atlantic ocean and so has some of the best breakers in the area. I often swing by here after my cello lesson nearby to check out conditions. I remember this day's shoot for being the day I began to use a tripod and that has made a big difference to how I approach the process of taking photographs and to their technical quality.. :-)

Cropped, flipped horizontally, topaz adjustments done separately to sky and to sand and water. Gradient, multiply at 45 degrees from lower right corner and some added vignette. Re-sized and sharpened.

Great job on the waves and the clouds. Looks like rain in the distance.

Penny, I just stumbled across this and thought how much it looked like Nauset Beach - and of course it was! Nice capture.

LOL! I just realized you and Bear used the same title. Very different interpretations! This is a gorgeous shot - beautifully processed as well.

It's a good photo, and it fits the theme as it is now, but there's nothing special here. For instance, a man/woman sitting on the beach gazing into the horizon would really help. Then you would get more 6 and 7 rather than 4 and 5.

the cloud seem so fake maybe cause of the post prossecing...
