    I like the composition and the view of your coastal shot, but nothing seems sharp. I think I'd have like to have seen the beach and vegetation at the beach a bit sharper than they are.

    Me too. It is the colours. It is a wondrous effect.

    I like the picture, too! And I don't think I could describe what type of balance, but the composition is pleasing. It looks like a lovely beach.

    I guess the balance is achieved via the rule of thirds, but that is just a guess. I am not sure what is the focal point of the image and thus I am wandering all over this scene. IMHO you might want to crop some of the sky.

    I think you have achieved a balance between the dark sea and the light sky, and the curve of the beach against the straight horizon. Had it been possible, I think it would have been more effective closer in so that the detail in the water and waves played more of a part.

    Nice scene, but lacks a clear center of interest. Balance might be improved if some of sky were cropped off.

    I feel this is balanced, but a lack of focal point doesn't keep my attention very long.

    looked at this and yes I like the picture.
there is some detail in the sky and i would have cropped it make sea the dominate shape and added contrast to the sky to bring out the clouds

    If the sky were the subject the proportions in this image would be fine. The sky, especially the top half above the lower clouds adds nothing to image. If you swap the proportions of sky and land/water you have a much better composition.
