Such a cracking sunset on your first evening - what joy.

I think you have handled the exposure well as there is a hint of detail in the shadow areas and the highlights are well controlled. On my monitor (which isn't calibrated) the sea looks a little grey, and if you are seeing that as well then you may want to see if that can be lifted a bit.

Compositionally I think you have got just right. Horizon on the lower third, sun and bird on the right hand third.

Thanks for sharing - a very nice image indeed.

A mighty fine seascape/skyscape, peaceful, yet dramatic....I like the slight haze on the water & hills which adds depth, & the way the hills balance the suns ' position....finally there's just enough sparkle in the f/g water & dark tone in the beach to provide a firm base & add a sense of distance to the overall scene.....I wouldn't change a single pixel ! notch !

I think the composition here's just about spot on and I particularly like the (probably accidental?) inclusion of the bird.
It looks a little grey on here too, not just the sea but overall so I've attempted a mod in which I've increased the vibrancy, increased the blue slightly and pushed the brightness and contrast a little.
It's lifted the shot but in so doing, it's taken away the "misty" quality of the original.
The jury's out!

Rather nice. The tonal range has been well handled and I would have normally wanted a focal point, but this one stands alone. Just a bit of greyness - I see it too. Lift the contrast a tiny bit without affecting the highlights.
