Good composition with the pathway leading us to the people and the setting sun. The colors are great, and I like the crop from the original. Adding a larger sun was a great idea, and you placed it perfectly. I have no suggestions for improvement.   Posted: 05/14/2023 16:21:23

Good job with the sun replacement. Pleasant image. Perhaps the image is a bit saturated and the processing a bit aggressive? Reducing the saturation a wee bit may help.   Posted: 05/17/2023 11:25:34

Nice leading lines into sunset activities by beach dwellers. The capture of the sun,the skies and the foreground. I think the bright yellow sun and and the surrounding skies are in too much contrast for each other. The foreground appears
to be over saturated. I like how your subject and its surroundings fit together.   Posted: 05/18/2023 11:25:17

The sun replacement is good. However, I find that there may be too much sharpening. Also, the saturation of the 'orange colour' may be too high. But the composition is pleasing.   Posted: 05/19/2023 23:06:39

Nicely composed Tony. You have many elements working for you here. The curved path, the surf rider, the larger replaced sun, nice sunset warm tones, and stormy clouds all add.   Posted: 05/21/2023 17:18:56

It is certainly a well-composed sunset. You definitely caught the right moment! But, It looks over sharpened or manipulated. I don't think you want the harshness that gives the image. I would have preferred less contrast as well.   Posted: 05/26/2023 18:32:35
