Like it! Just a bit concerned about the "halo" over the land. But great shot nevertheless.

no doubt it is a lovely shot, but if you had given 2/3 space for the sky and remaining 1/3 for the land, it would have been better, because here in your case the space for the land is very small although it contains very interesting elements,

i am not sure about the tiny object flying, obviously it is a part of your composition but at the first glance my eyes are attracted by that object,

although it is just a thought, and this image has a lot of potential,

wish you best of luck for your future works...

You right geegee about the halo, I was looking at it just when I put it on here.

I do have another photo with more space clicknimagine, thanks for mentioning this, I will go for the other one then.

Hi Susan,

I agree about the halo. This is a lovely image with some great colours and nice sky in it.

For me though I think I would have incuded just a little more sea in the shot and taken away alot of the sky as this doesn't add anything to the shot. I would have also cropped the left side just after the bird where the notch in the land is as the suns rays are the main part of the image and not the island.

I have uploaded a mod where I cropped the top and left side, adjusted the levels, sharpened and run through a noise reduction program. Couldn't get rid of the halo though, sorry.

Of course all of this is just my suggestion and it is your image and should be as you like it. I hope my suggestions have helped though.
