Very often less is definitely more! When attempting to capture the essence of the Sefton coast I’ve tried to reduce the elements in the image to those most evocative of the scene. For me it is the marram grass edging the beach, with the sea and sky as a backdrop that is most distinctly our coast. In looking for the kind of image that I could hang on my wall I think that detail distracts, busyness makes for a restless image. In this case a simple image is more restful on the eye, and, I think, something that will endure as a pleasing image much longer than a typical beach scene full of activity and detail.
