    Hi Gamal,

    I think the whole image lacks a focal point, it also has several other issues, but I won't go into them too unles you'd like me to - let me know.

    Cheers,

    I see your image as an abstract consisting of several (more or less) geometric shapes. How would it look if you cropped away most of the beach by sliding the lower border upwards until it barely touches the water on the right edge of the picture? That would make the sandy area into a right-angled triangle, thus heightening the abstract effect.

    Personally I am not bothered by the lack of a focal point, but that is a matter of individual preference.

    Have you noticed the artefacts in the sky? It's hard to say what's causing the circular spots. Could be a simple case of dust on the lens (back or front), dust on the filter, or something on your sensor. There's an excellent article here at CIC. It will help you pinpoint the exact nature of the mystery spots: http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tut...r-cleaning.htm.

    Keep shooting, and thanks for sharing your work with us!

    Thanks Waha. I guess you are right. In fact, I intended to display the various grades of blue. I'll give it a shot by cropping. The dark spots were dust on the filter.
