Wicked, nice simple shot. The framing is lovely, but I might have positioned the girl slightly further to the left to perfect it!

@DaveB: Cheers Dave, I did play around with the cropping (I was trying to get her in that position) so yes, maybe a touch more would have been better. Thanks for the comment!

Love the sheer simple joy in this and the feeling of the perfect moment. DaveB has a point but similar could also be approached by slicing off part of the beach at the bottom . . oh, we have such an easy life as armchair editors !
