    water and palms

    I liked the flat colours in this scene. I used a long exposure to flatten out the water. This was taken a little after sunset when you get that second wash of light...

    Very interested if people think I could do more PS work on the water? Its looking a bit so so in the foreground. I considered cropping a little off the bottom, but I like the current composition. I am very happy to hear any suggestions to improve that or general critique. Anyway I will probably do a bit more correction work on the full file.

    Unless not palm trees are the important object on a photo? It would be better to lower them. To place them below, opening more the sky. Or to displace them closer to the center on one-third

    Yegor, thanks for the comments.

    The trees are not essential focul points it is more of a colour canvas really. But apparently not so interesting

    Thirds is ok in many shots but I like to try some different compositions.

    I could easily see this image as the cover for a photo book with the title in a bold and contrasting color over the water.
