The Luminous Break by DrewHopper The Luminous Break by DrewHopper
The shoreline cops a pounding during a beautiful sunset. The intensity of light was overwhelming as it beat down on my back, with the refreshing water swirling around my feet. It's the moments like these that I cherish, one of the reasons my passion is photography.

Valla Beach - Mid North Coast - NSW, Australia.

I can't even articulate how gorgeous this is :(

I don't know quite how to put it, but I think you really captured just how overwhelming the experience of being there must have been ^^; or at least much as any photograph can.

Amazing picture ;w; <3 and I love he close up of the rushing current and stone, stretching out to calmer waters and the evening sky. Beautiful lighting, too!

Again Drew, nice light but no composition in my opinion. Which is more I have seen a lot of waterscapes from you to this kind of formula and to me it's below your ability level.

I'm going to agree with you on this one Alex. I could have composed a stronger compo, but unfortunately I was limited to time, and the waves weren't very consistent so it was a bit of a waiting game to get the effect I wanted. This was as good as I was going to get before the light passed. Cheers for your honest critiques, always appreciate them :)
