Youssef, this is a lovely beach sunset. I especially like the long view along the beach with all of the ripples in the foreground. I do wonder about a slight burning-in of the brightest parts near the center of the sky, for a touch more color.

Beautiful. I love beach sunsets. I particularly like that it was shot at 1/30th of a second giving the waves just the right amount of softness. Perhaps a bit of toning down of some light spots in the sky, but otherwise excellent.
