Nolan - you can't  believe the biggest laugh I had just now...I just don't know how I missed those footsteps like that - well, I already got them off (the ones up against the shoreline) and while I was at it, I made the others smaller, more windblown and lightened them up.  I also lightened up that whatever that little darker triangular thing was where the guy jumped off the cliff into the water  :2funny: as well.  That ALONE has made it 100 x better.  I'll add the individual blades of grass once dry with the rigor brush and mix up more shadow color to address the shoreline when I do that.  I'll add the seagulls as well but I was thinking after looking at those footsteps like that at the waterline, I should have put a shark's fin in!  Thank you SO much.  I didn't think I could even go back to it and now it's redeemed!  Will post a new pic once the rest is taken care of!  :flowers:  :thankyou:

Nolan -

Here's the pic and hopefully I captured your recommendations...I know the horizon looks askew but that is only about the photographer...lol...it's really level in real life.  Not sure if there's anything else I can do at this point...it's now dry.

Hey, Michael... you're practically my neighbor.....I live in Palm Coast, just south of you. We are in Jax all the time as my son & family live there.  Your dunes are lovely!! :clap: :clap:
