Twilight

By JulieLetten
Myself and Ian Yarrow met Ian Snowdon on Sunday night at Saltburn, where Ian S shared some of his vast knowledge of photography with us. Thanks Ian.
This is one of my last shots taken as the light was going. Not quite up to Ian S's standards!
Constructive criticism welcome.

Thanks every so much Ian S for a great evening and next time Ian Y and I are over that way, which shouldnt be too long, we will give you a call.

Hi Julie, Great night on Sunday shame about the sky but the light was beautiful and it stayed dry.
The image you have posted is beautiful, but you have asked for constructive criticism so here we go 'in a nice way'

On my monitor the beautiful orange glow seems to have a green cast? This could be through how your monitor is set up? No big issue, I managed to rectify this by altering the colour balance by -19 Green and - 23 Blue. Altering the white balance also helps a great deal.

Objects, like the pier and the rock to the far right are distracting because they have been cut off at the edge of the frame. Moving the camera slightly to the right and eliminating the pier, would have given more FG interest and so more pleasing on the eye?

Overall it is a great image the sky and the sun rays are gorgeous. You have coped brilliantly with the highlights and the textures in the sand are beautiful.

Hope you are still a friend after all of this?
I am self taught so its only took me 25 years to learn.

Kind Regards
Ian

Absolutely friends!!! Many thanks for your constructive criticism. To be honest I had noticed the pier but this was one of those shots that I did not expect to turn out. It was a point toward the sun and see. Will have a look again at it on my monitor later and have a mess about with the White balance. See you soon!!

Fantastic image of Saltburn. Love the colours and light quality, and the industrial plant in the far distantce contrasts well with the natural beauty of the seascape.
