    Catching a Sunset

    I took this shot of a man throwing a cast net for live bait in Darwin. Looking for feedback.

    I really like the shot Wayne...gorgeous sunset!

    Only distraction to the image is the object on the far left side..looks like a tree?

    Thanks Mike, it can be culled in the next crop (or I'll get the chainsaw out).

    I think it needs a bit of a clockwise rotation. The horizon seems to be sloping down to the left. And, indeed, I'd be tempted to do a crop to takeout that tree on the left.

    Gorgeous capture. Wonderful timing and placement of the net too. Though yes the horizon feels like it needs some straightening. Stunning though!

    Looks fantastic mate. As the others have said, just the horizon and the trees - easily remedied but fantastic lighting you've managed to capture

    Thanks all for your comments. I use rapid fire and captured about 8 shots of the cast. This was my favourite as he catches the sun. Total stranger but if you don't ask you don get. I will make changes as recommended.

    To keep the aspect ratio you could clone it out. Beautiful capture either way you choose to go Wayne.

    I love the way the net has 'captured' the setting sun. Nice composition, Wayne. I have no problem with the tree on the left as it appears, along with the tree on the far right, to anchor the edges of the image almost like a frame.

    Hi,

    It is great. And, sincerely, the trees are no distraction for me. I have only noticed it after reading the comments.

    I like the image very much and I never noticed the tree.

    I envy people who can throw a cast net with that dexterity. It sure saves on the price of bait if you can catch your own. I usually end up with it tangled all over me.

    Superb edit Wayne, and well worthy of a spot on your wall..Catching a Sunset

    If the file is still large enough, maybe it could be printed onto canvas?
