Somehow there isn't any strong point of interest. The clouds don't have enough shapes to draw in attention. Landscape on this might help but you've got a piece of land at the bottom, which is going to slant and draw the eye away from the sun and the waves, depending on how extreme the foreground is.

I dun think it is very wise to 'try' shoot direct at the Bright Sun :nono: .... cos that time i have a friend try shoot at the sun, maybe the mode was accidentally switch to manual mode, and the shutter speed was about 1/2 second ..... at the end, the CCD was burn with a hole and cost him about 1K to replace the CCD :bheart:

I here to get your views lor. If I know for sure I dont need to seek any views.

So far I agree with all comments generally, esp the one abt the clouds being uninteresting. I tried switching to B&W and play with the constrast for more interest and you can see the results below:



Slightly better I think. More details in the cloud behind the shielding cloud but not enuff. The only going thing for it are the rays of light visible coming out from the centre.

I shot the same scene again 5 mins later with a different orientation, and this time I think it worked. More elements: clouds shape and variety, and maybe even a hint of motion, and then the colours too. I called this second pic, Rising Sun Ready to Run.



What do you think?
