Basically taken as a holiday snap, but it is quite heavily cropped and then just basically tweaked a little, but I like the different colours and tones of the sea. Any comments welcome.

Nicely capture, maybe try a little additional exposure just to give it extra impacted.

Its a nice shot that suits the panorama style, - like how the cables from the kite are running out the right corner.


A little brighter, and little sharper for sure will improve it. In addition I think the white balance is a little too cool (blue) as it obviously a sunny day, so Ive uploaded a mod with the brightness adjusted as well as using a warmer white balance.



Regards

Decent iimage but quite a lot of processing artefacts at this size. Dead side on angle not ideal, I don't think. Often better looking slightly down on them with movement slightly towards the camera.

Thanks Willie, your mod is definitely an improvement, thanks.

Thanks for your comments Paul. Not sure what you mean by 'dead side on angle'?
