Hi ! You have been extremely lucky to capture the bird as clean and frozen in motion with 80 ISO, speed 1/125 sec and aperture f/8. thankfully your two items of interest in the picture, the bird and the silver lining on the distant cloud are fairly close to each other and they have more impact; actually a vertical frame could also look as good and could capture more of the dark sea at your feet. I can't know where you had been standing but you are quite off balance.

Hi Abhinav,

The first thing that hit's you is the horizon not being level, while sometimes an image can have an artistic look when taken from a diagonal angle in this case it looks like the sea is flowing out of the frame to the right. You can also make the image a little stronger by making a few adjustments in your photo editing programe which can be achieve in many ways by using things like "Levels" or "Curves" etc and maybe the "Dodge Tool" very gently at around 6% and sweeping it a few times over the sunlight on the sea.

Abhinav if you have a photo program make a copy of your image and see what you can do, it's good to play.

I'm not sure but it looks like you may need to do some cleaning to your camera, I've highlighted a couple of spots that may need to be looked at, although to be fair I can't make my mind up about the bottom one Wink

Take care
Martin

Apart from the Horizon and the bird, I quite like your photo, and even after taken the bird out and straightening the horizon (see uploaded mod) you have captured a lovely seascape with a great sky.
Mike.

I do like this very much although as Martin says the first thing you must do in this kind of photo is make sure that the horizon is sharp. There is maybe just a little too much plain sky and sea, so my mod is in letter box shape preserving what I think are the most interesting parts of the photo. I have added a little clarity and vibrance, to bring out the glow of the sun behind the cloud.

You must not presejt images with sloping horizons, especially of water. You will quickly be told it needs correction. First lesson. S good ckean correctvexposure, but not really enough content to give tge image any strength or to make anyone take more than a glance. The bird passes as a subject, but could be several times larger to strengthen it's presence and a bit more to the right.
