There is a very interesting sort of counterpoint here with the sky and the foreground reflecting in reverse - superb image

lovely sunset, or is it a sunrise, I'm not quite sure but whatever it is, it's a great shot

This looks familiar, were you there on Sunday evening by any chance?

Margeret - This particular page is not recording any votes - it certainly got mine (and I guess the other commentators here would have voted) so don't get disheartened.

It's not recording any votes because it has been uploaded to the critique gallery!! If you want votes upload to the main gallery.

Nice image with subtle colours. Welcome to EPZ.

Nice shot Margaret - I knew a telephoto lens was the right choice. In using it you've managed not to compress the sun to a small dot and this adds a focal point. The contrast between the light and shadow works really well and is almost abstract. Personally I'd be tempted to crop the image from just above the dark ribbon of cloud at the top - this would create a traditional 'rule of thirds composition' (rules are made to be broken though Wink, but here I think it would improve the composition by balancing the picture). Finally, I can't make my mind up if the horizon is straight. The slope of the island is severe - but then again it is severe. It might be worth trying to rotate the image a touch before cropping just see what happens to the general aesthestic. Only my opinions - take them all with a big pinch of salt.

If you are the lady we met on Sunday with the lovely dog - I'm glad you decided to take a look at epz. Beware though it gets addictive (especially the forums). Smile

Regards,

I agree with Adam I too couldn't decide if the horizon was straight as there are so many different to levels to look at.
However I have done a quick mod, I straightened it and also cropped a bit off top[as Adam suggested] but taken a little off the bottom too to take the new horizon line off the centre!
As Adam says aesthetically I think it is more pleasing. I did this in picasa play around with it yourself and you may come up with abetter result
Hope this helps

Your welcome. More to the point welcome to epz! It can take a while to get to know your way around the site, but have a good rummage - also take time to have a look at the forums, as a resource these can be invaluable.

Nice to meet you the other day.

Adam
