    Congratulations on a beautifully captured b&w image! I initially had a problem with the left shoreline, but the rest is so powerful it was soon forgotten. Very nice!

    Nice mood to this shot - pp worked very well. I kinda wish the figure was not on the horizon, he seems to overpower the scene

    For me, it looks like a movie poster. Nice!

    Very nice, one of my favourites, sharp & great feel in b&w, sun setting just to side of the walker is also excellent, not sure about the horizon but I can live with that. Well done

    I really like the low shooting position as it gives life to the scene. The sky isn't too bad either! (-:. Nice composition.

    I really like the light and composition, and the mood and atmosphere conveyed so well - in my top 3

    You exploited the lighting very well. I like the mood and the contrast.

    Moody and powerful shot. Sense it is just an illusion but the left slope makes me feel the horizon is off level.

    nice moody. cropping some of sky and fore ground would make it more appealing to me.

    I like this a lot ... the careful processing, the low angle, you in the frame .... really interesting atmosphere.

    A masterly b&w interpretation with the only very minor blemish being the two or three very bright pebble reflections

    Some like bright sunshine and colour for beach shots but you have captured the stillness very well. Well done.
Just look again and a sunset as well.
