very early morning, so this must be the moon not sun. am I right? the moon looks over exposed to me and to central. and i think you need something in the foreground. but the main problem to me is the color, is this blue real color or you added on post processing?

Rather than being West Kirby, I presume this has been taken from West Kirby, looking out across to North Wales with a bit of Hilbre Island on view to the right. As mentioned above I feel sure that the sun doesn't rise that early so it does look like a moon lit seascape.

It is an interesting shot but a little too blue for my taste and also as mentioned earlier the moon is rather too central for a well balanced composition. I have to admire you for getting out of bed so early, but it might have served your purpose better if you could have had something sailing into the moonlight, where it touches the sea. There generally is nothing there, all the boats and sailboards being in the Marine Lake so i don't know what to suggest. On its own it does look quite good as a record of what is there, perhaps if Hilbre could have been a little more on show that might have helped.

Hi, Done you a mod, I love shimmery sea imagesGrin I cropped it first taking away the cloud above the moon that I thought was a bit destracting, I took out some blue and added a touch of red to make it a bit less blue. Nice ImageGrin

Rather over exposed for me with too much burnt out. Even then there is no real subjectto act as the focal point for the 7mage.

I rather like this, despite all the 'blueness!'
I've added a couple of mods. In the first, I've used the colour mixer and pulled the blue slider all the way to the left and in the other. I've used the resulting image and slightly de-saturated the blue channel only.
Naturally, how blue or otherwise it ought to be is subjective, as I say, I like the original but there is some variety to be had there.
I have no problem with the subject being central but something in the water, a boat perhaps, or someone drowning, would make a good focal point.
Also, you've got a dust bunny at about two'o'clock to the sun.
Hope this helps.

Bren.

Edit: with hindsight, I'd clone out that white line in the top right.

Cheers Bren I like it however to see a person drowning the picture would not evolved, i would try to help the poor buger hope you would do the same lol but i agree with you a boat would of finshed the photo!

i think you must fix the date setting on your camera because it showed 4am.

Using 'sunny 16' the exposure should be around 1/125 at f/11 ish here at 100ISO, therefore at 1/640 and f/13 you used would have underexposed by around 2 1/2 stops. With the sun prominent in the frame, the camera has underexposed in program mode, hence the odd look and the over saturated colours.
The suns too central and it's all a bit intense for me.

Plus, if the camera date is correct, the moon is a waxing crescent before half moon, so would not be full for a week yet (30 sept).
