[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cannon Beach with its distinctive Haystack Rock and Needles marking its shoreline, Cannon Beach is one of Oregon's quaintest and most picturesque destinations. Nine miles of beach make a perfect setting for strolling along the seaside, watching diverse wildlife in its natural habitat and building a sand castle in the annual sand castle building contest competition. With strict regulations in place limiting the infiltration of large chain stores or restaurants, Cannon Beach retains its small town charm.
The photo was taken in the morning about 8 a.m as the tide was receding. I hope you like it.

A well balanced composition in terms of lovely colors, contrasts and exposure, Muhammad!

The reflection on the 'frozen' surface of sand is beautifully shown and adds great beauty to the scene.
POV and DOF are excellent and a thin black-lined frames works well here.
Nice work!

Best regards,

The rock in the middle of the beach gives me an inmpression of "already seen". The reflections and the nicely harmonized colors fits well. The morning mist on the left announces a nice day to come.

Hi Muhammad,
Beautiful blues in this lovely scenic view. Excellent sharpness and POV.

Beautiful! Awesome capture of this beach scene! I love the Oregon coast. Great lighting and dof with sharp details. Nice catch of the reflections on the wet sand. Wonderful colors with good saturation. Well done, tfs.

Beautiful photo with classic composition, I like these blue tones and the silhouette of the rock

Hi, a beautiful scene with very attractive rocks - and the light is splendid. I like the receding water, ending on the beach.
Thanks for sharing - kind regards and thanks for the note - Monika

Very nice. The sharpness is excellent and the whole scene very clear. I like the overall composition with the reflection of the rock in the tidal flow.
Strong colour!

Nice pic ;-)


Edited to add that there are least two good size dust spots in the sky that could be cloned out...
