I'm kinda digging how the clouds mirror the sand forms on the beach.

Pretty cool, Matt. Blustery, in fact :)

Duck, Thank you. I was going to call it "Triple Ripples" but thought that was too cute. Also wanted to leave something for the viewer to discover. Matt

Thanks Frank. Went back today for more shots of the kayak stand; brooding sky this morning. Am having mucho trouble struggling with PS for the first shots, but I will survive. Matt

I like this but find myself drawn to that dark landmass at the bottom-left of the image. I thought at first to crop it out, but find it's a nice anchor, but maybe not so much. I played with it a little in the browser. I'm curious what you would think of it if you cropped it up to the base of that separate ball-like land mass at the bottom-left. I want to keep some of the anchors but don't find the water to the right of it helping the image in any way. I hope this helps! S-
