Workshop Note
I couldn't resist playing a bit with this image as the various elements in it are so spectacular. I love the foreground and the gleam on the water and wanted to make them the main subjects. I cropped and then squashed the image a bit to simulate a lower point of view. Now there were three main compositional components rather than four as the sky is eliminated. My eyes kept jumping back and forth from foreground to sky and now I feel more settled. Of course now it looks more like one of my more square images whereas I know Paul is often partial to vertically oriented coastal shots... and he is a master of them.
