well done Sherri.  :clap: :clap: :clap:  The water behind the rocks could have more definition. Look at the video again you will understand.

Nicely done Sherri. I think the only thing would be to get some darker values in the shadowy areas.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Great work, Everyone!  Very interesting boulders!  I saw tons of free photos and especially liked the pictures of them cracked open and the shapes they make!   :)

great job Sherri :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
your water is nice and shiny, to make it even more shiny I would actually darken the foreground sand a bit more so that your sand is darker than the water (opposite to mine) O0

Nolan,

Darkened the sand.  Not sure if I got it dark enough was afraid to go too dark.  What are your thoughts???

Thanks
Sherri

you can continue to darken the foreground like this :
notice that there is a shading between the front and the back to get the depth. There is also a sharper edge where the sand and water meet

Nicely done Sherri.  :clap: :clap: :clap:   You may want to define the puddle water's edge with a line.  See the video near the end Nolan shows it well.
