That is for you to decide - if you like it, be proud of it and slap it on the wall ;)

You can then rate your friends based on their reactions to the photo on the wall.

Me personally, I don't know what to do with that bright white spot in the sky as it overpowers just about all other subtleties in the photo.

I do love the two landmasses that are similar in shape. Perhaps you could shoot the scene at different time of the day - like right after the sun has sunken beneath the horizon (or does it ever during this time of the year?).

So... do I qualify as your friend?



If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.

Not a bad shot.

If you shot RAW, you can make some contrast, density adjustments to help with that. Better would have been taking two shots in RAW & blending them together.
Got PS? Take a look at this thread for how to use a Layer Mask to selectively lighten/darken part of a pic: Airport runway shoot
"Contrast Control" Tutorial
Or, to blend two different exposures:
Blending Multiple Images (external link) They use a gradient, but I prefer to use a black/white brush to make the changes. Like in the "Airport runway shoot" example.

Blend Modes can help, too. See post #13 in this, & the links in it.

It's a decent photo but it doesn't contain much and as pointed out already the exposure could have been done differently. I wouldn't want it on my wall but you may have different taste :)

Whilst a competent shot, there seems to be a lack of something to focus one's attention on. In this case, it is too minimillist.
