Ruth this looks really good!!!!!!!!!!!

Only hting I would suggest, is to soften the shoreline, so it looks like the waves are creeping up the beach, and not in a channel..;)

Hi Ruth,
Congratulations on two fronts, firstly for this your first post to the forum and secondly for a seascape which has turned out very well indeed, especially considering the two hour time frame.

Very nice Ruth!

Getting your feet wet eh? :)

Nice depth, but I agree with JJ, the transition from sand to water could be more gradual.
