Wow! I love it! Simple and effective. Very serene. The smoothness of the sand is just gorgeous, punctuated by stones. Great tonal depth in your black and white. A 10!

I like this very much. Great composition. Perfect i b&w.

Kind of grainy. LOL. Just kidding. I really like the composition though. The contrast is great. I like the darkness against the light sand. The angle and framing/cropping are just fine. I like how you have taken up the entire photo with the subject. Definately looks untouched by man. Nice find. Good luck in the challenge.

I might have liked seeing something else as a point of reference, like incoming water, or a bush or something, but still a nice shot!

Very interesting shot and nice in B&W. Is that a coin over on the right side about halfway back? Just kidding.

Nice photo, good contrasts, but for me, it's a bit low on the wow/interest. 7 Swash

challenge met. i love beaches, the patterns formed by the water washing the sand around objects in its path ... and you've captured a very nice photo here. undisturbed sand is great. i wonder why you chose to use b&w instead of the warm colors of the sand and the different colors of the stones. i think they would've earned you an extra point from me. but, nevertheless, your entry is high on my list of favorites in this challenge so far! :)

I think I would have prefered this shot in colour, great composition.

Though this shot doesn't have a lot of "emotional" appeal to me, I do like the shot, and especially like the black and white. Don't think I would have liked it much in color, it wouldn't have the same stark, artsy feel to it. 9
