It's an amazing shot. Very vibrant colours. Water looks like gold. Better if the shininess is less so that the subjects will be more visible, especially the boat and the birds.
Well done.

Ricardo,

Don't know why you've put this in the critique area as I can't really see what there is to critique, it is just a stunning image.

Welcome to EPZ by the way. I think the critique gallery is a good place to start on epz. This image is a bold interpretation of sunset - so I guess it will attract views about the difference between purist photography and digital art. It clearly exaggerates reality but it is very compelling. I like the shape of the clouds both light and dark but the positioning of the birds in flight makes it exceptional. I am not worried about the positioning of the boat as the highlighted wake starts in exactly the right place in this image. Also the boat is positioned perfectly to benefit from the reflected highlight behind it. All in all the image conjures an atmosphere and mood that is very appealing. Personally I am not bothered about strong colours, the use of software enhancements etc when it adds to the overall image. It would be great to see the original though in order to really make that judgement. Hope to see more of your work. Steve.

Hi Dave, I consider very interesting the possibility of exchanging opinions and criticisms about our work.
That does not learn and progress in our photo.
Greetings and many thanks for your comments.

Thank you so much for your comments and welcome Steve ..!
I also think that the PS and its surroundings are just collaboration tools for better photography.
I have over 45 years in photography and I have many "vices" of classicism in photographic aesthetics. For over 20 years I am trying to break free of these shackles imposed by the composition and the whole conservative technique. I think I'm getting there.
Best Regards ...
Ricardo

Welcome Ricardo, what a start! This is an absolutely stunning sky in a wonderful composition finished nicely with the boat and birds. When digital manipulation yields this kind of result then it is fully justified.
Great work, keep it up, I can't wait to see more.
