    Before you remove the pictures, I'd like to comment that I thought the pictures were tilted intentionally. However, after viewing #4 The Wave, I am not so sure. #4 can definitely do with a straight horizon.

    Yes. They are tilted intentionally...
    but what do you think of the composition and the techniques, how can I improve on it...

    Also... how to remove the photo?

    1) Tilted horizon does not work for me.
    2) Sky is burned out
    3) 1/2s without tripod? You get handshake
    4) I would stop down your aperture for such shots to at least f8

    have commented on your labrador series, because i felt another photo was better.

    for this one, the exposure amount is about right, gives a very serene feel, but very important point to note is for this sort of wide scene, best not to tilt unless there is a PURPOSE for the tilt. otherwise, it will look like a mistake. here the tilt is not here not there.. yet too much to correct without massive cropping so i guess no point correcting unless there is a reshot.

    for correction of horizon/tilt problems, you can refer to my thread here. up to page 10 should be what you want to look at. the elements in the distance, amount given is just right, but just a bit more sky and less water would be good, so that the cloud on the left which is quite prominent does not get chopped off abruptly.

    cheers and keep shooting, sunsets/sunrises are very different from usual shots and really require a lot more understanding of light than daytime shots, i feel.

    Many Thanks for your comment.
    I will remind myself to be more careful on the way I hold my cam...

    when you get a tripod eventually, or if you have one already, check if there is a spirit level, this is usually shown as a bubble thing with a certain circle.. located on the part where you place the camera on.

    this will help you eliminate most perspective/horizon problems.. or at least even if your eye is not exact it will minimise the amount of problem present.

    alternatively, you can get one (~$12-$16 from what i've seen on online sites) which can be mounted on top of the hotshoe area. almost a must if you take a lot of landscapes.

    I have a tripod... but intend to get a more sturdy one...
    You are referring to the leveling bubble?
    Any brand and model that you could recommend?
    (It's one time investment, so best to get the right one the first time round.)

    BIG THANKS !

    ahahaha you shouldn't ask me, maybe you can do a search.. cos i buy cheap tripods so i can abuse them without feeling pained..

    if your budget is big, try manfrotto or gitzo, most people swear by these

    otherwise, if you have limited budget, you can try ppcp's steige tripod

    or slik sprint pro, if you're using a prosumer it should be more than sufficient light too, these two models.
