I like this picture. It has got a beautiful calm atmosphere, and makes me want to be there watching the sun going down! I think it could be improved by adding some foreground interest, as my eye is drawn straight to the sun and tends to miss the bottom left of the image.
A beautiful first upload, very nicely balanced and exposed - welcome to EPZ and I hope you can get along to the NI meet.
As it's in the critique gallery I'll have a go but have to say I can't really find any fault with this. Just a pointer as it's your first upload- it looks a little soft especially around the pebbles. Assuming the original is sharp it may well be due to the compression on upload. A trick is to sharpen your pic normally before you convert to jpeg for upload...then open the jpeg and apply a lesser sharpen (maybe 30%) to that, save it and then upload...should just make that bit of difference.
Would be nice to meet you soon, whether in Antrim or Donegal
Agree with Stephen nicely exposed with good composition, welcome.
welcome to epz.
this is a lovely landscape, and contains most of the ingredients to do well in the gallery as wide angle sunset/rises usually seem popular with a nice sky and a good foreground. i particularly like are the receeding ripples and the sun has been well controlled too into a starburst instead of a mad flareball. brave really, i usually wait until it just dips, sometimes i wait up to 10 mins after when the afterglow seems to look magical over water-- but here i like the way it is striking a golden patch in the foreground ripple.
i think the foreground could be sharper with a secondary sharpening after reducing to 72dpi and i would be tempted to remove a slither off the base to remove the odd cobble which a bit near the edge and it would have the secondary benefit of bringing the waters edge right into the bottom corner.
nice shot though and i look forward to seeing more uploads
Great first upload. Not to good at the old critique but I think you have done a good job of the exposure keeping detail in the pebbles and the stunning sky.
I hope you can make the meet in Ballycastle. I hope to be attending it too on Saturday for the day.
Love the image, sunsets always look good. I have upload a mod and have tried to add a little drama to the picture.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for the feedback and critique very much appreciated. I must give a bit of a sharpen, and maybe warm it up abit as I see robert has done on his edit.
Appreciate the feedback and look forward to meeting some of you at the weekend.
I agree with Stephen's comments Pete .
