Thread: Sunset @ Broadwalk

    Default Sunset @ Broadwalk

    A photo that was taken last year at Broadwalk. Thought the silhouette of the yacht and the speedboat with the sunset in the background looks quite interesting. Let me know if this composition works for you. Comments are welcomed. Thanks!

    Hi

    I like the warm colours - however, I felt that the shot either could have been tighter or more emphasis could have been given to the water. I say this since there is quite a lot of empty space at the top of the picture

    cheers

    Nice sunset.. but take note of your horizon. looks tilted.. also can consider to add a border to the pic to get the postcard look.. just my 2 cents

    Another option that you could have shot would be a portraiture position.

    Frame the sun to the right of the frame and zoom in closer so that the reflection of the sunrays that hit the water would be on the right hand side of the frame and would lead to the boat towards the top of the frame.

    tilted horizon

    the sun looks off-center, i think itll be better spot on center, or placed more obviously to the left or right so it looks deliberate

    Yup. In some cases, it works, depending on the subject, but not in this case.

    Composition is fine as I believe TS wants to emphasize sky and cloud formations. However, colours are not the best I have seen so far. The sun is burnt out while the rest of the colours are flat. Perhaps the same shot taken at a different timing may be better.

    Here's one that I have amended. Let me know if this is better..

    prefer the first pic, with a amended horizon.
    too tight a crop looses a bit of the feel.
