That's simply lovely, Allen. The golden colors of course, and the sweep of the shoreline, and the crisp silhouettes of the birds, and the soft focus of the background.

This is beautiful...and the soft focus on the couple in the background is a lovely touch. I'm just wondering whether you considered cloning out that little dark spot at the lower left edge? Congratulations on this outstanding POD!

Beautiful light and color. The layers of subtly repeated shapes -- dry beach, wet beach, group of sandpipers, and waves washing up -- is particularly nice. Congratulations on the POTD, Allen.
