This image was taken last August at VA Beach using Iphone XR. I enhanced colors using presets in Snapseed.

I love the light and colors in the image. You DO need to adjust the water line as it is sloping to the right at the moment.
I'm also thinking that this would have been even better if you had taken the image a few minutes earlier while the sun is behind the pier! You will just have to go back and hide that sun!!!!   Posted: 10/05/2020 17:29:00

Very beautiful sunset! I love the colors and how the light falls across the ripples as the waves retreat. Nice reflections too! I like the composition as it is, but following Phillipa's suggestion, I can imagine the light and shadows would be cast tbrough the structure very interestingly. I see no major changes that improve this, just a tiny straightening (and removing the small green dot).   Posted: 10/07/2020 15:32:02

The image is sharp with good colors. Fishing piers are always a interesting place to use a camera. You might remove the green spot on the right and also straighten the horizon..   Posted: 10/08/2020 10:40:47

Thanks everyone for your comments. Yes, I tried to make sure that the pier fence is straight but I totally forgot about the water line!   Posted: 10/08/2020 19:11:20

Never mind Kieu-Hanh! I am REALLY good at seeing other people's water lines...and totally forget about mine!!!   Posted: 10/08/2020 23:35:27

Personally, I don't mind the waterline at all. And I really love the quality of the glow on the sand that you have achieved, that makes me feel like I am there!   Posted: 10/09/2020 10:21:06

Thanks, Marilyn. I wish that the competition judges will be as generous as you were. They won't accept the water line that is not straight   Posted: 10/13/2020 05:23:00

The dramatic diagonal of the bridge certainly leads us over to the sun. What a happy coincidence--or planned composition--for this image. The sharp diagonal held my eye to the left, so I didn't realize the horizon sloped until I read other comments. So your photo worked its magic on me.   Posted: 10/17/2020 12:15:40

Normally, it's best to have your diagonal go from left to right. Trying that with your image proves that idea to be wrong in the case of this image. While the sun is rather bright, as it would be, it really doesn't distract as one would expect. You got a wonderful image here and i think it's definitely worthy of a place on your wall! Well done!   Posted: 10/21/2020 17:06:35
