    Pacific Coast Seascape at Twilight

    Got this shot on Easter Sunday, about 10 minutes after sunset:

    Pacific Coast Seascape at Twilight
    Panther Beach Twilight

    Canon 50D
    ISO 100, f/10, 0.5 sec, 16mm EFL
    Singh-Ray 3 stop reverse GND

    Any and all feedback appreciated! I learn the most from honest critiques.

    Cheers,
    Dave

    Very nice Dave, I love the colors, texture changes and reflective surfaces. The only thing I might suggest is a very slight straightening.
    Honestly it is so slight it might be me that is crooked.

    Thanks Paul, much appreciated. I thought the same thing about the horizon, but it's a bit confusing. The surf line, beach, and the clouds, above the horizon, are all moving up and to the right, but I'm pretty sure the horizon (ocean line) is straight based on my post processing.

    Actually, Paul is correct. It is off about one degree to the right. I redid it in PS and it does make a difference and in the case of horizons, a little off is a lot off. try it and see....the easiest way is to set a guideline slightly above or below the horizon, then do a global rotate at 200% until the lines align...it never seems like a lot of movement until you back off to normal screen size....then, whoa, a full one or two degrees.

    Very clever; I suppose there could be a little more definition in the rocks, but it is very nice.

    You're right Chris and Paul, the horizon was slightly off. Thanks Chris for the tips on guidelines and 200% viewing, much appreciated! Image above is updated with this fix.
