    I wonder if those fleets are distractions?

    Hi Al.
    Nope to the boats, they add foreground interest. I would crop out some of the water and make it more pano.
    Nice sunset, great island silhouettes. You could work this area for hours and get something different each time.

    Nice photo Al. As Graham stated there is lots of potential at that location.

    Thanks Graham, I cropped some of the water and yes it looks lovelier.

    This is one of the very, very few sunsets I have seen working when the sun is actually still in the image. Usually sunsets work only after the sun has actually set.

    But you have managed the lighting wonderfully well.

    I think the land and the boast add to the image enormously. Without the boats in particular, we would have had a lot of space just filled by water. The boats break that up nicely.

    Excellent image. My compliments.

    Hi Al,

    You're gonna hate me, so is everyone else, for criticising such a nice sunset - the horizon in the first shot is level, but in the second, it is a bit 'down on the left'.

    Apart from that, I love it too, so much so, if you can, could we see it twice as wide?

    I know, I've got a cheek asking

    Sorry,

    An alternative crop, Al, would be just to the left of the right hand boat and a similar amount from the bottom; which should allow you to retain your original width/height ratio. And concentrate the action closer to the sun.

    Or possibly crop at the lowest point of the land then clone out the little bit of boat which remains.

    Sorry,
    Sir Dave, yeah I know, I've noticed it that horizon and I've working on that before I posted this photo and it gave me a long time to level it, since the difference is just a tad. The first photo was a bit down to the right if you'll notice and the second was down on the left. Okay I'll see if I could make it wider. Don't be sorry, I have to learn more and thank you for viewing.

    I hope I did the right thing.

    Hi Al, nice image to start with and after all the advice (C&C) you have ended up with a better image at the end. Well done.

    I really like it when the sun is actually in the sunset without being blown out, which yours does nicely. The silhouettes also work very well.
