I really don't mind the low score but it would be nice to know what people don't like about this photo or how I could improve it.

This is the eastern shore of Cape Cod MA USA. I waited for a cloudless day to get this. Shot with a Fujifilm X100F, a B+W 10 stop ND filter and the built in 3 stop filter on 9/13/201 and the exposure is 50 seconds.This was shot from a bluff perhaps 75 feet above the sea. The larger debris on the shore are about the the size of a person. I was inspired by the minimalist work of Hiroshi Sugimoto.
Please say what you like or dislike about this.

I love it!
Would love it even more if there were more sand, less sky in the picture. It would make it more graphic

Thanks for the feedback!

Agreed that more sand would maybe be cool.
Have the lower third sand, middle third sea, top third sky.

other then that, great minimalistic shot!

ps. One dust-spot on the sensor is visible in the sky.
just right of the middle, easy thing to remove in post.

Thanks. I missed that dust spot.
