Hello Sian,
At first welcome on TN! A very fine and peaceful picture, very discreet on the thumbnail, but very interesting if looking closer. I especially like the layers of subtle colors and the way you composed your picture.
May be some PP-work would have given a little motre visual impact in giving for example more contrast.
For me natural pictures are always welcome.

Kind regards

Hi Sian,

It's a lovely ambience you captured here, the light in the clouds and the soft peach tones are really nice. Composition is good, with the rule of thirds applied well.
The only thing i might suggest would be using a tripod and a ND graduated filter. These would allow a lighter foreground and a greater DOF by using a smaller aperture, say f/16 or the like. Maybe even something lying around on the beach or some sort of feature in the foreground would be a nice additional interest. Anyway, they're just a few suggestions, it's still a lovely shot!
