Very nice silhouette, some might say it is a bit underexposed but for me you got the exposure just right.

Good try. Exposure close I would think or the sun would burn out. Possibly a subject as main silhouette to rest the eye on better.

hi,
the image is nice but the water particularly is dark creating a huge shadow block in an area that otherwise wcould have been beautiful.

the main area affected is the left side. im not on a machine with PS at the moment but you could try making a dulicate copy, lighten the whole thing in curves until the left side looks reasonable and then do a graduated layer mask BLACK TO CLEAR over the right side to take it back to where it started, this can be faded with the opacity slider to get a nice balance. The balance overall should be more even and the tones more evenly balnced side to side as its very dark and heavy on the left. once opened up the bridge and relections will show better and make the sillouette more attaractive.

using grad filters on camera may have helped a lot at the taking stage.

regards
Phil
