Rock on Beach - Acadia National Park, Maine

Here is an image taken back in October from my trip to Acadia National Park in Maine. This one was taken at Sand Beach. I am not sure if many will like it so I would love to hear your thoughts. I like it, but would like it even more, I think, if I had placed the rock more in the lower right corner. I converted it to B&W since the color version was boring. I made it out to the Fort Worth Nature Center on Monday to see what was around. I saw a lot of Carolina Chickadees, Tufted Titmouse, some Goldfinches and I spent about an hour with some Cedar Waxwings waiting for them to perch in a good spot where I could get a clear photo of them, but did not have any luck. I saw very few ducks due to the lake still being frozen over from the arctic blast we had last week. The only species I saw were some Northern Shoveler's and I think some Pintail that were flying overhead. The weather is warmer and all ice has melted, so I am hoping to get back out there on Monday and see if I can find the Bobcat.
Anyway, I hope you like this image.
