This piece is composed extremely well... everything from the curve of the waves crashing to the lighting (more contrast toward the right side of the frame between the glare on the water and the shadow of the landscape behind) helps to focus and direct the viewer's attention to the silhouette of the person walking and even gives a sense of that person's motion.
The soft yet rich colors are not only visually pleasing, but make the image very intense and captivating... I can almost hear the crash of the waves, making the viewing of this picture as relaxing as going to the beach!
I only wish that the silhouette of the person were not as blurred, but I'm sure with the light you were working in it would have required a pose instead of a candid motion like this.
All things considered, this is definitely one of my favorite beach photos.
What do you think?

This is just gorgeous. I love the deep colors and the contrast added by the hues. The richness of this piece is captivating, but then the lighting and the blurred figure make it look impossible; more like something from a dream than an actual photograph. This is just painfully stunning. O___O

Very nice composition in it, the water looks just brilliant and got stunning colors. I like the few lights on the island in the background. And the blurred human fits imo perfect here.
