    Hi Miguel,

    The result looks fairly natural for exposure.

    The only thing that strikes me is the change of colour temperature across the sand; the left third/half of the image is 'warm' and well saturated (even in the shade) and the rest of the image, including the sunlit sea, is rather cooler and more subdued. I appreciate this might have been deliberate to 'reflect' the sky above, but it somehow looks unnatural (to me at least).

    It is quite a pleasing composition, I might suggest a few odds and ends in some places might be usefully cloned out.

    The horizon is level, always good to see

    I'd like to go there though

    Thanks Dave for expressing your opinion. The picture doesn’t have retouching (normally I do it). It is as it left the camera. I am going to follow your suggestion.

    PD: Sorry for my English, I am trying to improve
