Nethra this is lovely and you have most certainly captured the essence of morning as opposed to evening...very cool.

Stunning! I think the composition is well done. The beached boats have a lot of charachter and I love your use of colour, where the sun glints off of the. I like the shimmering on the water, and the colours in the sky as well.
Just the smallest critique-the water horizon does not appear to be entirely flat and horizontal, which I think it should be-but that might just be my eye.
Still, beautiful work.

The light is fantastic- I can FEEL the sun! Fantastic attention to detail. The time of day you have painted is very difficult to capture proper lighting and you have done it with flair!

good work, evocative!
at the edge of the sandy area you've put a darker line, that line color is the same as the edge of the second boat, that creates some confusion an that area, easy to be fixed I think.

The lighting and the color combinations are well done. The painting has a serene feel. Only distraction are the dark lines - on the horizon, on the sand, on top of the boats, my eyes don't know where to focus. Beautiful work.
