Art for art's sake, with no purpose, for any purpose perverts art. But art achieves a purpose which is not its own. (1804) Benjamin Constant

I like this a lot. There's a lot going on in the scene, and it flows so well together.

The sky looks really underexposed. I know it's hard to fix that because the red channel will get blown out quickly as you lighten it (and the orange clouds will start to look fake). Maybe you can process the RAW file at several different exposures and then combine in HDR?

Anyway, the combination of the clouds and water is just amazing. Plus I like the little pool of water that looks like it's flowing into the sea.

Great photo!

JLT & Debra Thanks for your comments, you two are my fell-o-meter.

TJ, Thanks for your advice, you are right-on what was happening with the sky & I'll try your fix. Whats neat about this place is the little pool of water is like a swimming pool that flouds at high tide & storms and is quite inviting at low tide and calm waters.
