This is a great sunset image. Good leading lines right to the sunlight streaming through. I think if you toned down the bright light of the sun, you would loose the impact of the image. Great image!   Posted: 08/08/2019 11:02:56

Perfect timing and composition. Love the shutter speed. Great reflection of the sky on the beach. I don't have any suggestions other than if it were my image, I might try to diminish the blown out area by creating another layer and painting and blending in the surrounding color.

I really like this composition! The waves really push my attention to the bright orange sky and further out into the sea. Great work!   Posted: 08/08/2019 12:46:36

You caught the decisive moment here, Richard. Nice mood and good color reflection from the sky. Very well done!   Posted: 08/10/2019 02:38:32

I love the color and mood of this image. I love the motion blur of the wave, just enough to suggest movement and power of the wave. I do agree about the hotspot in the sky, my eye is drawn there, however I am not sure that it diminishes the image in anyway, so I'm not sure I would change it. Great work!   Posted: 08/15/2019 01:01:37
