Summer still hadn't come in December

By freckles
December sunset. Cold and stormy instead of a hot summers day Sad
(I live in Australia Smile

A half a buoy washed up on the beach right in my photo path while I was admiring the cloudy sunset.

Merry Christmas and I hope for all a happy new year xx

We've had some better days than that "Up Over".
Nice photo though. The clouds look great, nice exposure. The large version looks great.

Happy New Year Alan

Hi Andrea! Thank you so much for the comment on my photo, much appreciated.

This shot is so moody and full of details to admire, but.. yes there's a "but".. I'll have to go with Mike.W on this one. Not exactly sure if the 50/50 (ie. sky/water) split works. You said in your profile you want to learn a bit faster, so try dividing your photo into thirds, both horizontal and vertical. There's a rule of this in photography, and yes you guessed it.. it's called "The Rule of Thirds". You can learn more about it here:

Rule of Thirds guide #1
Rule of Thirds guide #2

I myself have read a few of these guides when I started out about a year ago (more of these guides can be found with google). All of them are great, but all basically telling the exact same thing. So I picked a couple that I think you could read if you have the time & energy. After all, the composition of a photo is really important.

If you had the energy to read to down here, I would like to thank you for your time. =)

Beautiful, dramatic light and 'movement'.

Sometimes breaking the rules really works, the way the cloud is boiling up in this is very dramatic. Like it.
