Nice sunset shot. I agree with @reh321 that the silhouette is not necessary. Just the sunset and clouds would say enough.

Dang, RE one shot you want people in the scene and now you don't want any in the scene! I had set up for the sunset and along came this young lady walking right through my scene. What else could I do??

too bad the silhouette of the person can't be seen completely; all against the water

I had no control over where she walked when she walked through the scene. The only control I had was tripping the shutter and I tried to do that as she was passing directly between the sunset and the camera lens when I noticed her walking by. Thanks for the comment!

Well; I happen to think the young lady seemingly reaching for the sun, adds more impact to your photo!

Nicely done!

Many thanks, I felt including her silhouette added impact also. Sunset scenes are a dime a dozen but including someone in silhouette adds a bit to the image. Thanks for the visit and comment!!

You're welcome! The placement of the girl, directly under the sun, and in the path of the sunlight on the water; to me, adds huge impact. My eye was taken directly to her!

Thanks, that's what I wanted viewers to do! Thanks for the confirmation! Truthfully that's what other commenters did also, I judge that from their comments.

You are right - I am inconsistent.

We all are inconsistent, I was joking with you when I said what I said.
