    Moody Sunset at Great Salt Lake 8/20

    Taken on 8/20 from Great Salt Lake State Park (formerly known as Antelope Island State Park) facing north to Fremont Island and Promontory Mountains.

    10 second exposure with a 2Stop GND filter for the sky.

    Thoughts? I was thinking of printing Metallic on blackboard (styrene or foamcore)

    Very nice photo. If you wanted to emphasize the reflective feature more, you could crop out the tan area in the bottom center of the photo. A great shot either way.

    You're right I could emphasize that! I'll give it a try and see if I like it.

    Very nice indeed Mavourneen, the colours and clouds look great. I'm inclined to think along the same lines as Bob, ie to crop off the bottom bit of the image. I feel it's a bit distracting. But it depends on the overall effect you were after.

    Additional comment

    Having looked at this image some more, and noting the comments from John and Mike, I now feel that just toning down the bit in the centre at the bottom would be worth considering.

    That's just excellent. I agree that the bottom centre is distracting but I would be loath to reduce the feeling of space by cropping. It should be possible to tone it down or even change the colour slightly.

    Agree with the crop, agree with the "WOW!"

    I like that the current crop leads my eye directly toward the center of the image. Rather than cropping to remove part of the bottom area, consider changing the warm beige tones to something that complements the cool tones in the image.

    Whatever you decide, it's a wonderful image.

    Like this image a lot. It has lots of energy. Tan bottom section seems to be out of place.

    Re: Moody Sunset at Great Salt Lake 8/20

    It's interesting, although the crop suggested does change the dynamic, almost like you are flying above the water , directly towards the island and follows the normal guidelines. As is, my eye goes down into water first and then towards the island. So, the tan area does serve a purpose to make it seem you are "in" the water and forces you to look around the image more slowly. I also like how you used the clouds as leading lines from the corners of this image. By the way, this is my first post on the site.
