I like the idea of waiting for the light that way, but wish it were sharper. Love the username, though! ; D

Both comments very helpful thanks. Regarding the whether the shot is 'interesting', I think I was so focused on the light playing on the waves that I neglected to ask myself "Is this well composed" and I agree it's not. So good comment there. Regarding the sharpness, had I to do it over again I would have increased the shutter speed.

Thanks both of you.

I almost wish you had taken it about 10-15 minutes sooner so the sun would have been just a little higher in the sky and been all there on the first set of waves. With the dappled light it kind of ruins it for me. I always feel the same way in portraits though, so I might be coming at it from that view point.
I also wonder what the foreground would have looked like if you pulled shadows or increased exposure to be a little bit higher, but not quite high enough to make the mid ground exposure. So you would then have dark on top, light mid ground and maybe 1/2 lower light in the foreground. I hope I am explaining that well enough to explain what I am thinking.
