Taken on a freezing Sunday morning on Alnmouth beach. It was just starting to snow. I'm not sure about the composition - any comments?

Composition? To quote an Aussie friend (FRPS in Printing), "There's no such thing". Your picture loo0ks right, and that's what matters. I can't say I like your weather.

Try a crop just above the foreground marram grass to exclude the far side of the estuary.

For me the picture is the blocks and the marram grass, the estuary and hills spoil what could be a great photograph,try a reprint cropping everything above the grass,Richard

I go along with the crop suggestions too. I love the arrangement of the stationery blocks and the contrasting movement of the grasses. That's all you need IMO - very strong and thought provoking in that area alone. Very good PQ as usual :-)
