    A walk down VA beach

    I like the striking van Gogh color of the sandy beach, and how it contrasts with "the deep blue sea."
    One suggestion: The jet trails are distracting. Want to try and remove them? I think it would help.

    Before doing anything else, I would make the water-level level, the sea horizon horizontal, at right angles to the vertical, parallel to the frame's top and bottom!

    Hi Jeff, if your intention (based on the title) is to focus on the footsteps, try a croping that reduces the sky to about half of what is there. This would put the horizon at the top 1/3 level, make the image more panoramic, and tell the 'beach walk' story all at the same time.

    Much better already Jeff,

    I agree with Frank's suggestion and would add, if you know how*, some Local Contrast Enhancement, but just on the beach for the footsteps, if they are the main focus.

    * I'll expand later if not, just ask
