    Don't mean to be mean but consider this: Ditch it. Come back to it at a later time and it will have a different look to you. This has worked ffor me on some of my troublesome shots. Often when I come I don't see what I thought I saw the first time out and I saved a lot of paper that way. Please, no offense intended.

    I still think it has great potential. Burn in sky, increase contrast a touch, and lith print. You'll get the mood right, and the lith will give you the warmer colours you seek.

    Here's a start: re-shape it and cut out the waste:

    Interesting....

    Working on this image, boosting the contrast of the foreground area much higher than what I thought would be appropriate is helping the image a great deal. Right now, I'm up to #3 1/2. Burned in the water and sky with #2.

    If the sky and waves are dense on the neg (and you still want detail in the clouds), pre-flash the paper and then play with the contrast/exposure for the foreground. I don't think it will ever look like a 'hot' beach though.

    Re-shoot it...

    You are too far away from any facial expressions that may show sweat or heat discomfort on anyone's face and the clouds make it look cold, not hot.

    You and those people may have been hot, but no matter what you do to this print, your viewers will never know this simply because of the way you chose to shoot it.

    This is an image that needs a more powerful human expression or moment to read as being "hot" and it simply does not have that at all.

    Another vote to try without the sky, at all, since it is somewhat overcast, but I am very subjective, and often wrong.
