Nice capture, the small fishing boat is a nice touch - it looks as if your horizon might be slightly off to the left - easy to check in PS.

Thanks for taking the time to look David. I appreciate your comment and will look into it.
I enjoyed my early morning shoot,, but as there has not been much response guess i have a lot to learn.

Nice image. yes, the horizon could be rotated CCW in PS, by a small degree. With landscapes, you should include something in the foreground, to lead you into the rest of the shot. A rock, a shell, etc. Silhouettes are nice, and this one is nice as well. Thanks for sharing...and keep at it. Practice makes perfect. Oh, and if you don't have one, a CPL and a tripod are really great tools to have, at times like this. The CPL will bring out some 'extra' drama in the sky...and the tripod will steady the shot (not that there's anything wrong with yours).

Great composition - the boat makes it - and nice lighting.

Though having said that, one thing you might want to try with shots like this is saturating the colours a bit more. You can do that by under-exposing a bit when you take the shot, or of course you can tweak it in post-processing. You've got "image editing OK" in your profile so I hope you don't mind me having a quick play with it. I've ttiee to make it a little more dramatic, but without over-doing it. Whether or not you find this sort of treatment preferable is of course entirely subjective. But it's fun to experiment.

Nice looking shot, the horizon looks straight to me, its the Island that tilts, but thats the way it probably looks so leave it :)

I like the original shot, agree that a litle more contrast/less exposure would be better.

Note that CPLs won't do anything when shooting into the sun though.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to look, lot of stuff there that's new to me.

David and Stewart, thanks for your versions of what i produced, my main problem was my foreground. It was a flat grassy bank which was totally black so i cropped it, and it left me with a smaller image than i intended but you live and learn.

Next time i will try a bit harder, cheers everyone. :)

regards brian.
