I guess this one, though taken on a different day, is a kind of companion to these two, though in this instance I've chosen to focus on the foreground rather than the figures on the horizon.

Like the previous two I mentioned this was taken as the tide came in around these people and generally I'm quite pleased with the result. The one aspect I'm not sure about though is the specular highlights. Generally, I don't like to overexpose my photographs as I think that blown out areas in digital files are invariably quite ugly. But with this sort of shot it's inevitable that some areas will blow out; i.e. the specular highlights as the sun glints off the waves.

Anyway, as I'm not entirely sure about this one I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
