Taken whilst having a beer with my daughter one evening last week on Whitstable beach.I was there to take sunset pictures,but this girl was having her dinner in the sun and I thought how relaxed she was.
The foreground was selected and an adjustment was made in levels to brighten.

I like the pic...but my only observation would be that the bouy/seal/ball in the eye line is quite a distraction. I would remove it to make a cleaner shot.

You can almost smell the chips!

This could have been a nice shot except for those very contrived Sun rays. They make the image completely unrealistic.

Its would have been best not to try to embellish the Sun, - rather leave it alone, or crop to a portrait style to remove it and make the girl eating her supper the real focal point.

I have uploaded a mod to show what I mean.

Willies just said what I was going to! Lose the sun rays, in fact lose the sun altogether and concentrate on the figure and groyne.

Yes, I agree. I'm afraid the attempt to be a bit different has backfired. You have two subjects, the girl and the 'sun'. The effect on the sun doesn't work for me. I would leave off the effect and darken the image quite a bit.

It has all been said except for - I would like to see a level horizon.
