Evening Tide at Crail

By 66dougie
One of many shots I took at Crail, Fife. This is a 30sec at f/22. Reducing the clarity to smooth out the waves a little more.

Very pleasant and peaceful shot. Looks to me that your horizon is bowed. There are at least two ways to sort this out in photoshop, and also ways in other editors. It would be worth it for such a great shto.

i like the exposure and the subject matter, the 10 stopper effect is nice here with the tones that it has rendered, its more ususal to see them taken in orange or pink tones of twilight.

what may have been nice is if there had been more detail in the sky cloud formations to spread across the image with the long exposure.

may be a little burning in in the water to bring out a few details below would give more impact and its been mentioned above that the horizon is off level and that needs correcting in photoshop.

like the exposure though, its not so easy in daylight to achieve such a long exposure.

Nice shot - nothing there, but good for it! Bowed horizon a result of the kit lens, probably at 18mm. Not really a problem.

Thanks for the pointers. This shot was taken at around 9pm around two weeks ago. Looking South East onto the North Sea. I did try to correct the horizon on PS, but for some reason couldn't get the curvature straightened! I do have the original RAW image in which the sky has more detail, but I prefered this shot after reducing the clarity to -100.
