Ok, now I hope you know how I feel about the beauty of this picture. It has such a clean, unclutted look that is refreshing and it beauty is anything but simple. I love the composition and the pov and how you run the fence in a diagonal direction. The lines of the fence and that gorgeous shadow of it is beautiful and then the sand with its own natural lines just make this a WINNER my dear friend. Amazing work girl.
