Great

Hi Scott
What really stand out here is the thin line of the glowing warm light running above the horizon with the bright splash of sunlight peeking through on the 1/3 vertical axis. Above it are the dark threatening clouds and below it we find the dusky waters with just a delicate hint of reflection streaming over the surface.
Again your composition was well planned and executed having the triangular piece of beach cutting into the domain of the ocean at the 1/3 horizontal axis and ending almost on the 2/3 vertical axis.
The colours are great, the DOF carries well from the foreground unto eternity, and the exposure was well controlled with the 1/6s time exposure.
Excellent work and TFS.
Regards
Loot
PS. The purists might hint at the fact that the horizon is 1mm lower on the right, but I won't mention it (chuckle).
