Hi Wenda!

This is looking really lovely. Your values are great, the water is really nice. You should be proud of this!

If I were to pick on anything it would be the colors and shapes in the sunset. Specifically the way the darker yellow kind of dips toward the sun. As if the sun were a marble dropped into a liquid. Did you use a reference photo? Clouds can do so many things, so it may have been that way in the reference. it just looks a little confusing.

What colors did you use in the dark yellow or gold part of the sky? It just feels dense and heavy, I would have used more peachy colors. Again, that is totally up to you and what you like!

The wet sand will also reflect some of the yellow colors...

Here is one I did a while back to show you what I mean.

thank you Karen for taking time to give me pointers. i made a couple changes and posted it in photo gallery.
