Fish-Eye is an underwater observation chamber at the end of a long walkway out over Piti Bay in Guam. This near-sunset looked like it might make a nice scene. 5-frames with 1 stop between HDR hand held Lumix GH3 ISO 200 28mm eqv. C&C Welcome.

Very nice. And that's from a non-fan of sunsets.

You might add just a bit of exposure and contrast to the walkway and structure. It seems a overwhelmed by that dramatic sky.

Sky is a little 'crazy' for me. More like 'busy' than 'overdone' though.

One thing that did occur to me is weather you considered/tried for something more at the bottom on the frame. You have the few reeds on the left and I'm assuming any more just looked messy, or you couldn't get the sky you wanted in. Did you think about dropping in a stone before taking a shot? Just an idea I might have tried after getting the 'main' shot.

Nice scene. :)

The sky and water are dramatic, but appear to have been overly processed with tonal contrast. The range of tones in the sky is just too much.

Also I like the foreground foliage, but there needs to be a bit more of it.

First off I like it...mostly. However! I am not certain of how much latitude you had to move around fro composing this shot, but just like random branches in the foreground, random grass etc is just as deadly o the shot. If you have the chance someday go back and take a look from a position left of where you were. Then composing te shot (sans vegetation) such that the pir extends almost to the right edge of your shot. Place it near the horizontal centerline, yeah I think this is one of those times when dead-center horizon is called fro. What that would do is use the pier to deparate the world of water from the world of sky.

What they hey, worth a shot. pun intended ;)

I appreciate that from a non-sunsetter!

Thanks, I'll have a go at it.

I agree that the sky was indeed crazy. It had been storming about an hour before so the sky was clean and clear. The idea of casting a stone is very creative - I wish I'd thought of it. I'll save it for next time. Thanks.

Thanks - good ideas there. I was in a bit of a rush. So next time out I'll look for a better angle when there's a decent sunset.

I Love this!
It almost comes across as a composite.
But a great looking shot!!
