Its a very nice snap from a compact.

Its not level of course, but thats easily fixed.

The light was difficult, - not only for a compact, - but for any camera. Its seemed hazy and warm, and the image shows a very constructed tonal range, with no real black or white areas.

It would have been a good idea at the time to move your camera lower, to catch the full reflection of the pair, - could have been quite a nice shot.

Ive loaded a mod to brighten a little, and lift the shadows on the horse and the man, as well as straightening.

Hope it works for you,

This is a well seen and composed image, but is a good stop or more under exposed. Many cameras will do this in this situation, including top line DSLR's, but you need to look at the LCD straight after shooting and you would see this was under.

It's quite easy to lift this in software, just brighten up and add a touch of contrast.

Hi Bg,
Not a lot to add to the above by Frank & Willie, all good advice and comments. I've gone for an inbetween crop as my ideal with just a touch of sky, I've also extended the right side to the image to give them a touch more room to walk into.

A shot with good potential espiacally if you could capture more sea and sand extending into the distance.

Nice pf.
