I like the green rocks. Not sure about the composition or crop. I like it viewed with the top edge the horizon, but then not sure. Some dead space in the upper right and the lower right made me want to see that rock.

Thanks Craig,, I DO prefer the "53 deg and blowing" version over this one but I liked the shape of this mossy covered rock so this is just a different view Thanks you my friend !!

I really like this Jim. I like how the rocks lead my eyes over toward the left then back to the right side and up the beach to the distant object (lighthouse?) on the right third. I also like the colors.

Thank you sir,, the didstant object you refer to is actually a walkway to the beach, it's got a flag post on there with 2 flags which were whipping furiously

Wow I like this image a lot!

I'd see if cloning out the rock on the right and the one on the left edge helps or not. Sometimes it could go either way. I'd also see if making the sand a touch pinker would make the green stand out even more, without making it look too HDR like. Finally I'd dodge and burn the clouds a bit with selective clarity to make them more menacing. But that really is only picking nit, on a super image.

The picture works well for me, Jim.

If you don't mind the suggestion, cloning out the half rock at bottom right would give better balance.

Thank you guys,, very much appreciate the comments,,
yes I agree after looking at the image again , it could benefit from the removal of that little rock lower right
Rob I probably could have brought more detail to the sky to make it pop a bit more too I often times try to keep them from looking to much "HDR"ish on occasion
