Canon 7D + 10-22mm

Serious C&C, please. I admit it's a bit soft.

What's the exposure length on this? This is one of those shots that looks great AND could be improved. What if you popped the test flash onto those rocks a couple times during the exposure? Maybe once for the water?

This scene would have made an amazing HDR (and I don't do HDR so that's all the help I can give on that. lol)

If I could go back, I'd give it a try. Unfortunately I am back home in Alberta. This is an HDR, but very subtly so. I can try a redux and up the strength of the HDR when I get back home from work.

I think if you cropped the pic landscape 8X10 removing the sky above the just above the lamp on the right, and some of the foreground it would make for a stronger image. It does look a little soft, maybe try a little unsharp mask.
The pier on the right and shoreline on the left lead my eye into the sunset very nicely, the sky and foreground take away from the sunset.

Thanks, I'll give that a shot later on!

I like it, how about a square crop chopping the top/bottom parts and straightening the lamp post slightly? If possible without it dissapearing off frame that is.
