I like this!! A wonderful landscape... The Colours are wonderful and dreamy..

I think I would crop up from the bottom a bit, as it is quite dark with not much going on. This would focus on the Colours and the horizon.. A nice panoramic type shot..

And I'm not sure if it's my eyes but it looks like the horizon is a tad down on the left!! Would love to do a mod but am in my phone at work Sad

I hope that helps

Hmmm, if anything, I'd say the horizon's the tiniest bit up at the left but I don't think I'd have noticed it if lianna hadn't mentioned it.
I agree re. the crop although I'd take a slice from the RHS too to retain the proprtions.
Also, I'd turn out the lights in the building on the right. I find them a bit distracting.
Otherwise, it's a well taken sunset!

Yes, I agree that a slight crop at the bottom would help, but don't overdo it. My biggest reservation concerns the blue cast, which is altogether wrong in a sunset shot and needs correcting in software. The composition is a bit odd, too, with a conflict between the headland and that lovely wave pattern, which seem to be competing for the viewer's attention. I think Jerstertheclown's suggested crop at the RHS is a good idea for more reasons than the one he puts forward. I would also give it a different title, e.g. "Waves at sunset" to give emphasis to what is, to me, the best part of the image.

Certainly a very nice sunset.
