[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a shot of the beach at Hastings Point. I love it when there are rocks on the beach. It always makes for an interesting photo and gives good depth of field :)

Sorry for the slightly crooked horizon.

Hello Claudia,
A lovely beach scenery!
Fine rich colours and the white topped surf is simply great...
Good colours and details, the rocky beach makes a strong foreground interest!

So the horizon makes it less than perfect -- that is OK! I love the PoV, composition and colours. This is a very dramatic scene well worth positing

Hello Claudia,
a very fine landscape picture with lovely light and colours.
Good POV, well composed and exposed.
The horizon is good I have seen worse.
Well done.

Hello Claudia,
Nice sea vista...
Well composed. I do like the waves...
Well done

I am surprised that you got that much barrel lens distortion along the horizon. Some lenses at the wide end will do that if you are not square to the horizon line. Mine does it at 17mm even if I am square. Just zooming a very few mms generally eliminated the curve. There are computer applications that will correct it too.

Did you use a polarizer? The colors are very saturated. Other than the horizon line I like the shot very much.
