A dramatic coastline shot ... assuming I can print it with strong blacks I would appreciate what folks think of this?

Sorry Phil,
This does nothing for me..no story,no balance ,no focal point with a lot of harsh contrast.
There`s good detail in the sand but evidence of a lot of human traffic over it .The fallen rocks lead you into ---a cliff :roll:
Sorry Mate- -- Not one for me.

While this might look better as a print - I don't think the extremely high contrast does it any favours when viewing on a screen. Too much cliff/shingle and not enough sky, I think - the balance would be better if you moved the cliff/shingle/horizon interface onto the classic 'thirds' position lower left. This will stop the viewer feeling overcrowded by the cliff - I'm not sure that claustrophobia is the emotion that you wished to convey!

And - yes - too many footprints and not enough forground interest to lead us to believe that this is a wilderness shot.
