Horizon needs a rotation but this is a nice image with an atmosphere.
Seems to be story going on

Lots of hidden meanings? Also, the horizon does not need to be straightened as it is already straight. This is an optical illusion (I've copied the image to my PC and applied a straight horizontal line!).

Excellent picture that makes the viewer think.

I like it, I'm a bit with Dodge69, because I'm OCD with levels, I might not be right, but can't help it.
I would like to see the horizon level.

But, this is a wonderful image, I love the close figure in focus, and the far figure, almost in focus, I start to wonder what is the connection, then wonder, is there a connection ?

It is a story.

Love it

Great shot, full of emotion and very nicely composed.
Best wishes,

The horizon is not parallel to the beach but it is level. The beach distracts you initially to think it's not framed right.

Excellent composition, and the drama, boy is it cold or lonely or both?!

Beautiful, thanks for sharing.

Great capture Lowela and welcome back. I like BW choice first of all...and compo. This photo bears a lot of hidden meanings (David is right). I like low-key in special way. Well fits to this subject.

I think this is a lovely thought provoking image, the Horizon looks dead straight to me, i think it's just the beach that gives the impression that it's not.
Kind regards Maria

Sean, I think YOU should check again. The horizon is level.

Nice mood and good use of the distant figure.

I am OCD too on horizons. The slope of the beach does accentuate the impression that the horizon is not level but the sea does slope down very slightly from right to left. No big issue but I think it is worth levelling.

Hello everyone! Thank you for all your comments... I did try to level the horizon but I guess the beach was not cooperating... But thank you for checking my photograph... cheers! Lowela
