Yet another Sunset

By devlin
Shot taken @ Lagoon Beach as the sun went down. Have uploaded 2 versions with slightly different processing.

Any feedback on composition etc is welcome. the shot was taken from an elevated vantage point over looking the beach. Also not sure about the two birds in the sky which show up as specks in between the other two clearly defined ones.

Nice. prefer V1 colours but not much in it. I'm not a landscape fan, but this is my kind of thing. Very simple, bgut very strong.

Great stuff Prabh,
I also prefer V1, I just prefer the colouring.
As Paul says, it's simple yet very effective.
As for the birds, I'd leave them as they are. I can't see the point of removing things for the sake of it.
If something is there when I take a shot, unless it's a real eyesore like a drainpipe sprouting from someone's ear, I'll almost always leave it.
Hope this helps.

V1for me too.

Composition wise, you have limited, sea and a bit of beach. If they're not in the right place, there's not much you can do about it. The central horizon is not a problem here, as sea and sky get equal billing. This is the kind of shot you "take", rather than one you "make", and you've caught a good one. The tiny figures give scale and help anchor the composition as it is. And the birds are fine where they are.

Nice one.

A very nice scene prabh. When I do a mod, the colour tone becomes a little warmer, - so I would have to go with the warmer tone. Doesnt matter about the birds, but the horizon does, it needs a small counter clockwise rotation.

You have a nice general sort of Seascape, well photograph and the composition is find. I have nothing against seabirds but for me in this case they do kind of spoil your shot.
Have uploaded two Mods: please note the quality of the mods are not too good, but my idea behind them is to show you that (for me anyway) there are better scenes within your picture. For me photography should be about capturing that scene, not too concerned with how the picture was taken or what equipment was used.
Anyway enough of my opining s, where is Lagoon Beach interesting looking place??.
