A well seen scene and pleasing sunset. Captured on the iphone it proves the worth of camera phones to allow the taking of pictures at times when we may not be carrying purpose photographic equipment. Despite the limitations of camera phones they have their uses and images such as this are good adverts.

The limitations of the smaller sensor can be seen in the slight solarised pattern between the orange glow of the sun and blue sky but nonetheless this is still an appealing image.

The main point for me here would have been in the composition as the blade of the turbine in silhouette going out of the top of the frame makes the image a little unbalanced. I would have liked to see the full blade with a little bit of sky space between its tip and the edge of the frame.

Good capture.

Hello, Andy, and welcome to EPZ.
I like your subject, its simplicity, and shooting it at dusk has given strength to the turbine and a colourful background.
The image may benefit from the use of the Rule Of Thirds. You have positioned the turbine nicely to the left of the frame, with the sun on the right, but it's not exactly on a thirds intersection. Of course, this is simply a guideline, but I think it could potentially improve the image. If you want to know more about the ROT, just ask.
The blade touches the top of the frame, and could do with a bit of sky above it so that it doesn't look constrained. At the time of shooting, you just needed to step backwards a touch.
Your format is obviously perfect for the subject, and you have most of the turbine set against the sky. It would have been easy to capture it in complete silhouette, but you have managed to maintain some of its detail.
There is quite a bit of noise/grain in your sky. I have removed most of it in my modification, and selectively went over the edge of the arc of sunlight where it was very strong. I added canvas to the left and top, for the thirds composition and to give the blade space, as mentioned above. I also adjusted highlights, shadows and levels, but only slightly.
Pamela.

Thanks for your feedback guys, it's much appreciated Smile I take the point about the blade at the top of the picture, it's looking a bit squeezed into the shot. Also about the Rule of Thirds, I will definitely try it out more! Thanks once again SmileSmileSmile
