I would have liked to have seen all of the ocean foam/sand running across the bottom instead of just the right side, none the less great shot.

I generally dont like HDR shots, but I do like how the ocean looks.

I would, however, like to point out that you've also brought out the chromatic abberations around the pillars of the pier. Perhaps you can address that. Also, it feels to me like the pillars aren't 100% straight but i'm not sure.

This is not an HDR, only levels adjustments and gradients in LR.

Thanks for the feedback. This is not an HDR, only levels adjustments and gradients in LR.

I did notice the aberrations and will look at correcting those on the next pass. I'm pretty sure that overall the scene is level, the pillars may be suffering some distortion from the wide angle and proximity to the camera.

It's a terrible weather day here that I'll be using to work on improving editing skills and likely redoing this one from its out of camera form.

Thanks again!

Nicely done although a bit overcooked. My main point is: originality..... There are too many of this sort of shots already....

I disagree. There isn't much in this world that hasn't already been photographed one way or another. However, this is what you saw on that given day and, therefore, it is uniquely your creation.

Surely a nice image but I believe that is not what you are after if title is CC.

Pros:
Composition, subject choice, timing and tech factors.

Cons:
Over cooked. Don't like the over use of burn tool for eg on the right side of second column on the right side of image.
Flare could be addressed.
Did you thought of a subtle HDR? Or if not, Grad ND?

How would you go about using a grad here? The placement would be kinda hard.

You were at the right spot at the right time, but the composition could have been better in my view point.
1. You had a nice tide coming in and I would have gotten the tripod lower to capture more of the waves coming in. If you shot the waves coming on to the beach sand and a litter slower shutter speed the effect would have been very good or just step back a little more to capture everything. Right now my eye goes right to the sun and the then pier and that is not enough with what you have to work with.
2. Personally I would have taken the shot with a lower sun, the blues in the sky would have been better and more colors to showcase...that sun is too distracting.
3. Work on the rule of thirds on the composition...I feel the horizon line in the middle is too bland.

While that's true, a big question is "what value does your creation have to the audience?" After all, once the photographer presents it to an audience it stops being just about the photographer. Presenting an image is an attempt to communicate with an audience, and it does matter what people think about the image.

That's not to say that one shouldn't shoot such things, and it's not to say that one shouldn't present such things. Just be aware that a lot of people will say, "pfft, already seen it", and there's not much to say to that. If they think it's boring then they think it's boring, and the fact that it's the photographer's unique creation isn't gonna change that.
