    Default sunset at changi broadwalk



    This is my first attempt at taking sunset pic. Pls comment.

    Shot is taken at the changi broadwalk.
    Can't really see the sun as earlier that day, there's heavy rain.

    Shot is taken with D70S.

    Nice! There's a certain calmness to it.

    Hi, this is my opinion. I like it, but removing that red thing on the rock using PS will make it a better picture.

    i like the individual elements on the image, the water, clouds, boat. but somehow together the composition just does not connect

    can't think of a solution at the moment, I will come back again and see if i can think of something

    Thumbs up

    I like it. Very nice & peaceful feel.

    I would PS the buoy black/dark as the rocks tho. The red doesn't seem to belong to the picture.

    Just me 2cents.

    i think you tried to put too many things inside the frame. i don't see where the focus is, the complicated cloud form makes the upper 2/3 heavy (with too much details) fighting for attention with the boat's silhouette, and the red structure (the colour) further complicates the scene ... and yes, the boat is too close to the edge of the frame.

    Too much sky, too little impact. The excess amount of sky, mostly those with dark clouds are not doing any justice to the picture. In fact, they seems to me more like dead spaces. In which case, I would actually crop the whole picture to a landscape format, giving the sunset and the boat a much closer crop. I do doubt that the feel would be compromise with the change in format.
