What is especially noteworthy about this image is the cropping either during the actual composition or later during post-processing. Either way, you really *saw* this image in a way that conveys the sublime (and nuanced) natural beauty of the Creator’s palette. By this I mean the way you deftly framed the gorgeous, subtle hues of blue in the water with the thin bands of sky at the top and sand at the bottom, so that the eye’s journey has both a beginning and an end as it travels up the vertical rise, feasting on the ever-darkening gradations of blue until finally it reaches that barely visible “boat on the line where the sea meets the sky,” to quote from the — gasp! — Barry Manilow song “Ships.” (Don’t ask, don’t tell.) To me this image reflects your ever-evolving eye for photographic storytelling.
