I find this image very interesting the editing you have done has given a 3D look, the sky with its soft look and the pin sharp grass in the foreground give to me a feeling of depth, like it a lot . only slight niggle is the horizon is not level.

Thank you Steve for your comment and also for pointing the horizon out to me, I should have checked properly before putting it on the gallery, never mind I shall re edit & hopefully the horizon will be straight.

I am sure the horizon will be fine next time, it is easily forgotten but as you realise it is also very important.
The sky is smashing with good depth but overall I do feel it would look better with some foreground interest and some light on the grassy dunes. I think you just caught this whilst the sun was a little obscured. A very good effort nevertheless Helen and I suppose befitting the title 'deserted'.

The sky and the reflections in the wet sand make this for me Helen.
A gorgeous inviting vista that just draws the eye along ingot he distance.
Excellent shot luv it (wonky horizon included )

Late with comment new upload is now here, I will have a look.
Just a thought though Helen, did you know you can replace a file rather than upload a new one if you want to??

Thanks Jeffrey, maybe give a try next time I do a re-edit.

It's a cracking shot Helen (looked at the edited version too) - love those waves - (white horses? ) coming in.. (or would those ones be white foals? ) Love it and looks like you had a smashing day!
