Côte d'Azur, French Riviera: La beach et les waves at Saint Aygulf

Vagues à la plage de Saint Aygulf

I've been some day in France recently.
Here is a photo of the Saint Aygulf beach.
There was a strong wind that day, the waves were high, and they made for an interesting subject :-)

The "real life" color of the sand and the sea in the unedited photo were pretty pale... but I've worked hard to give this image some punch, I believe that the nice subject deserve it.
I like the final result, it does have an HDR-ish appearance, but that's intended :-)

For comparison, here is the unedited image.
