Beautiful textures, tones and details. I am sure it will make for a luminous print! I see a tilted horizon -- and I am sure for a photographer of your caliber, that's purely intentional. I am curious as to why you did this. Thanks.

The horizon is not tilted, it simply fades into the distance. I love the tones in the water and the slightly darker collapsing sand on the right side. What bothers me is the power of the left side, which does give the feeling that the frame is tilting to the right. It is caused by the slice of land on the left, which points downward on an angle into the frame, whereas the right side points upward. If you crop the left side somewhat (and the top to maintain the aspect ratio), then the right side is given more power over the left. I like this competition--land fighting water. Now each is in balance.
