Very sharp for 1/30 sec handheld. I like the different coloured pebbles in the fg, the deep blue sky, and great motion. Overall, a very pleasing photo

Beside ...

the interesting framing I like very much the two "different sharp motions", means the juxtaposition of the wave in FG and MG. Nice one!

Best wishes,

Thanks Jeremy for your comments. Remember this was taken at the equivelent of 28mm in a 35mm camera so it should be handholdable at 1/30th of a second, plus I have the image stabilization on. Reguards Charles

very effective beach shot (even though I may prefer this without the white surf in the BG , to keep it simple ) ..cheers ;-))

Thanks Don for your comments, I'm sure I have one without a wave in the background too. I took over one hundred shots of this scene. One or two of them are going up work as a 4ft x 6ft print to cover sound absorbing panels.
