Bright light! VERY bright light! We are admonished to avoid it. But this image of small stones in shallow water suggested to me that it was the exact light I wanted: ripples casting sharp shadows, stones glaringly white , intense reflections from above and from under the water. The shear power of electromagnetic radiation!

It’s fun to wander around the patterns, shapes, and colours. I find the left side has a lot of tension to it. I would crop about 2/3 from the LS and try a few different rotations. Inspired to try one of these tomorrow.

Thank you Andre. Yes, they are almost two different images in one. I decided to leave it as one because, for me, it tells the story of the shore and the waves and the way the stones and sand get sorted out. But that may not be the best image in there! Have fun trying things out. I find I often need to make a few before I find what works.
