    It's unfortunate that the person at the water's edge is partially masked by the photographer in the center. A slight shift left or right, to fully reveal or hide them, could have made this perfection. I'm not sure cloning him out to get rid of the head growing out of her shoulder would be the right choice since I do like the basic concept of the composition of threes. You, the photographers, and their subject, repeated in the beach, the water, and the sky, and then again in the layers of different shading within each of those.

    If you like the image, then by all means print it to whatever size you feel appropriate.

    I am not so sure. It is a nice photo and I do like large prints (just printed one 150cm by 60cm) but I dont think this particularly photo would gain a lot by being printed large. Those prints I do, do large I tend to design to be printed large in the first place.

    Still if you really do like it - go ahead.

    Are you printing it yourself or sending it to a lab?

    If you are printing it yourself, go ahead. It's good for your printer's health to print something at least once a week.

    Also, lots of stuff that looks kinda "Meh..." on screen look great on a print.

    I say go for it...

    If you love it, print it. There is a lot of detail in the water that will probably look great in a large print.
