an ogmore sunset

By zapar40
thank you all so very much for you kind comments on my last upload, funny that i moaned about not getting out and then to find myself on the beach for a lovely sunset earlier. got there just in time to see the last of the sun going down behind thick clouds, out of the 40 shots i took i combined two exposures to get this image, the rest will go in the trash as nothing else worth keeping.

thanks for looking.

A lovely splash over the foreground rocks, Ant, which are nicely aligned with the setting sun.

Superb colours in this low light capture

Weather/sunsets can drive us mad!

Nice timing with the wave breaking over the foreground rock. Good use of shutter speed too, to add that movement without overcooking it.

If I may make one suggestion however, the shadow areas are a little 'heavy'. If you are going for the 'dark and moody' feeling then fine. However I wonder if lifting these areas a little may help?

(Thank you for the UA on my shot from Monday)
