I really like this shot. The skewed horizon really works here because the figure in the foreground is the main interest. In a more conventional landscape shot, it would stand out badly. I also like the dynamic of the girl watching from afar as other people are having fun. It all brings out the concept of isloation and loneliness in a very effective way.

What would I change? Well, I might try to eliminate the yellowish colour cast and put a little more blue in the sky but that's a taste thing and could destroy the mood you have created...

However you look at it, it's a very effective picture. Nice one!

the others in the background doesnt work for me. The hair movement is great and the angle of the horizon really works for me.

I like this pic. The angle of the horizon is very interesting and adds some dynamism to a sunset which is traditionally a calm, peaceful subject. I think to improve it I'd try to increase the contrast on everything but the girl - particularly the sky. The sepia look does nothing for me; I'd try to get some red in there.

Well done.

It has a lonely feel to it. I think the skew of the horizon really adds something special to this.

I like so much, its a simple photo, but I think that it has a good composition, and the colors are correct.
I think that it is a photography that it transmits, who has not felt sometimes as the girl of the photography, enjoying the sunset in the beach?.
Good work!
