"EAST COAST SUNRISE" by ALISON METHERELL; Grade: Acceptance.
Again, less is more with this image too. Remove the blank parts of the sand and the sky and the real image jumps out for you. I do agree that the whole image has an attraction, but for competitions, some punchiness is needed. The lighting in the centre of this image is quite pleasant, and has been recorded well. The next image shows my idea for improvement here.
