This could be in a gallery. The blue patch of sky works for me, it enhances the colour of the water. And the chap in the dry sand patch digging the surf... it's a great shot, thanks for sharing!

Agreed a real good shot but I think that you'll find that ''the guy in the sand digging the surf'' is letting his dog wander around in the water there. But at least five other people admiring the view. Sorz feel bad now that I've pointed that out :)

Sorry guys, i'm trying to fend off the neg's but it's a slippery slope. They are right, there's patriotic and then there's delusional. It's a nice country, but so are dozens more!

Brilliant. I would have this hanging on my wall. And would stare at it for hours. There is something in it that I cant pin down that makes me want to stare at it. Bravo dear boy, what what......

Rarely leave comments, but had to log in to say that, for me, this is the best shot I've seen in a long while. Love the colours, angles, atmosphere etc. Don't know whether it's photo-shopped (yeah, I had to go and mention it didn't I?!) but that doesn't really matter, so cool...

Nice to see a 'Profesional' photographer giving constructive positive feedback Sharpy. Great to see a shot from a different angle Mr Short.

Sick shot, don't think it's photoshopped, perhaps a lens filter?
