The whole atmosphere is really striking here.
It somehow feels very tired and peaceful but joyful at the same time.
The color of the light 'sets it up' and the two bottles in the foreground give it context. One could right a short story around this photo.
The churned up sand in the background, gives the idea of a party, but the fact that instead of a single bottle there are two abandoned on the beach adds a whole extra theme...
I also love how the distant points of land where included, it makes me think of a distant, unreachable world towards which the owners of the two bottles might have looked...
On a more technical note, the shallow focus works very well with the rest of the composition, emphasizing the foreground and adding a dreamlike quality to the rest of the photo.
It could almost be used as an example for correct use of the rule of thirds, absolutely nothing is perfectly centered.
I can't really find much to criticize except for the fact that there appears to be sand on and inside the bottles. It might have helped to wash them out before taking the picture.
Overall, this is a beautiful image, both at first glance and after a period of study.
It feels very relaxing, and one could spend hours formulating stories around it...
What do you think?

oh this is epic. Great photo

lighting: warm rays of the late afternoon, nothing crazy, but done correctly

focus: proper use of depth of field for subject/background discrimination. Just the right amount of soft focus to make the background important, appreciated, but out of the way, and eyes focused on the subject

Subject matter: nothing too stunning, which makes the picture better. I always say the "uber mench" of photography can make any subject matter interesting. You managed to make what is normally boring subject matter interesting, which leads to:

Composition: You've made what would otherwise be beach trash extremely interesting. You MADE the subject matter interesting by adding an adjective to the noun. The placement of the bottles to the right allows the perspective viewer to absorb the background and predisposition of the scene, the serenity of a beach a half hour before sunset. The arrangement of the bottles brings a strong connotation of love, making two inanimate objects apear human as if they were cuddling.
What do you think?

I have seen a LOT of summer wallpapers in my search for just the right one to have on my screen to celebrate the coming months. The wallpaper I choose is also the one my students see so it has to be just right and appropriate. This wallpaper captures the essence of summer in so many ways: lazy, slow, relaxing, and doing it all with friends!

Thanks for such an awesome image and sharing it with us. I hope my students appreciate it as much as I do.

First of all let me thank you for your comment, it was very much appreciated!
Comments like yours give me motivation to improve my works on every single photo I take. :heart: :hug:
The idea of the photo was to represent the essence of summer like you said, thou it was taken on winter but.. no one needs to know right? Heheh

Once again, I'm very honored and glad to know that you are using my photo as a wallpaper and that you loved it as much as I do. Thanks! :tighthug:

Let me just tell you...the next day at school, my students saw this and LOVED it! After that, I had to download some ocean wave sounds and together with the wallpaper,...well, it was a fun day! And at the end of school with the summer coming on it was so fun!

I really like how you did this. The sun and ocean in the background, and the way the one bottle is supporting the other. This photo instantly makes me think of lovers on the beach, enjoying the sunset :D

Absolutely beautiful picture! I love how one is leaning, it kind've gives an almost romantic feeling to the picture. The only thing I see is that it's a bit dark, but that doesn't really take much away from the photo :3
