Hi Max, the composition here is actually quite strong but you really can´t escape the fact the ITS ROUND THE WRONG WAY !!!

You´ve chosen a great location, but, you really need to take more care. Photography is a visual art form, and you´re work is judged by how it looks, not just what is in the image but everything to do with the way it is displayed. That´s why photographers spend so much money on portfolios and websites. In the case of this image you haven´t even rotated the image around the right way, which obviously doesn´t show your work in the best way.

Composition
& perspective
Despite what I say above the composition is actually rather good (although its hurting my neck to look at it) I like the fact the horizon is towards the top of the frame and the groin acts as a line that pulls your eye into the frame. I would have taken a step or 2 to the right to turn the line of the groin into a diagonal, diagonals normally work really well in photography. You could have also cut down on the amount of beach on the left .

Use of camera,
exposure
& speed
Highlights are blown out to the right hand side of the image and all detail is lost in the sand and the pebbles, which is a shame.
4/10
Depth
of field
A good depth of field but again I´m pretty sure that´s down to the phone you used rather than an artistic look that you were aiming for

Focus
It´s in focus but I think that´s more down to equipment rather than technique

Description
I wanted to capture an sense of human isolation set against the majesty of the elements.

How to improve your photo
1.
When you show your images spend a few seconds and make sure the basics are right
2.
If you are serious about improving your photography, you really need to learn with a camera, modern phones can take great images for sure, but they are still nothing compared to an DSLR despite the fact the cost about the same.
3.
Where possible avoid shooting in the middle of the day, harsh shadows are not normally pretty and it would have helped you to avoid the burnt out look on the left beach.
