    The light is spetacular

    I somehow like the glow in the image. Rather incredible.

    As stated in my 1st post. Thanks.

On the point of composition, usually when presented with a scene like this, I will take several pictures from different vantage points and from different angles, and even in portrait orientation. I will keep shooting until the sun sets, and when I go back I can first choose the best shot, and second to learn and examine what works and what doesn't. After sometime, your compositional skills will sure improve.

Maybe you can even have the setting sun peeking from one of the poles...so many possibilities and thinking of these makes me excited already.

    Cheers!
    Purchased some rubber boots so I can venture out into the bay at low tide. Thanks for your time and observations.

    i would use a wa lens and make the foreground bigger in the frame, this will increase the sense of depth to your image
    i noticed that there are nice reflections and patterns in the puddles of water
    i would use that too in my composition
    Yip, gonna use 10-20mm UWA on my next trip. Thanks for the pointers.

    The light from the sun coming through the storm is what made me glad I carry a compact almost all the time. Considering carrying my DSLR. Your compliments of mother nature are appreciated.

    Surely not, but thanks and I'm gonna give B&W a go. Is it against the rules to post subsequent PP images, following advice posted?

    Hi TS, correct me if I'm wrong, for the background it seems like it's raining on the left and sunshine on the right, side by side.

    If that was what's happening, I think it'll be an amazing photo if you had shot that scene closer.

    Yip, passing storm across the sunset. It's a 10mp jpeg so kinda limited to cropping and print sizes

    Oh man, I would love to get that shot close up. Rain and sunshine together in one frame. Why didn't you?? Ahhhhh

    Lack of time, a longer lens and a boat...

    Next time for sure.

    Thanks for viewing.

    nice light,

    but way too cluttered, when you use uwa , the idea is not to stand far far away, but to find a key strong anchor element or compositional tool that works well, go up close, and whack.

    you have criticised yourself well. for me, if i have not been to the place, and i see nothing of interest, i would not suggest what to do at that scene, conditions change, and we speak of what we do not know.

    but here, if i had to shoot, i would leave the shot using sky as centerpiece.
