Very nice.

If it were mine I'd be tempted to crop a bit off the right side as both of the figures are central.

Lovely colours and a" wish i was there feel to this shot".There is alot of space around so i agree about a possible crop.Also maybe by raising iso to 400 or 800 would have given a faster shutter to make it a little sharper.

well done though

Great photo, love the silhouette effect.

I've uploaded a minor modification with the crop as Franken suggests and a slight change to the temperature and a small tint to make it appear warmer, but that's just personal preference!

Nice simple shot. Those out there shooting sunsets, this is what is meant by having a subject. The people are the subject, the sunset is the background. Sunsets rarely look good with no subject.

I would crop the right a bit with a sliver off the top to move the figures slightly to the right.

Couple of things with this image overall I like the image however I'm a great believer that silhouette images need to have the focus points as black so in my mod I have adjusted the light balance to darken the figures to black. The figures are also centrally positioned so I've cropped to place them to the right side leaving the open space of the beach in front of them to simulate the movement in that direction.

An addition to my mod could be to increase the colour saturation slightly as required, but this would be something done to personal taste.

Overall a good image

Erik
