Sunset over the bay.
Lens: Samyang 10mm 1:2.8 Camera: Pentax K-3 II Photo Location: Cabo San Lucas, México ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F11 

Taking advantage of the weather sealed K3 II and taking a chance with the Samyang lens i decided to get close to the water and take the shot as low and close to the rocks with the concerned that a small wave would get my gear wet, anyways i was looking for this low shot because i wanted to capture a good amount of the sky and ground all in one shot, the shutter speed was 15 seconds.

The use of wide angle surely paid off. I’ll agree with you about the low angle shot, your sky was very giving. That said, I think including a “whole” rock in the foreground, or a focal point, sort of speak, would really elevate the composition.
You have made a choice of a pretty long shutter speed, the water is flowing nicely and there’s a right amount of movement in the clouds, but I would bring the exposure a little down in pp , just to give back this “evening”, sunset feeling that almost gets lost when exposing for so long. A level adjustment would definitely do the trick.
Another option would be an ND filter, of course. But I believe your approach wouldn’t need that.

Yeah, i like the final image but i know it could have been better. The ND filter was not an option as for this lens there is no adapter so i would have to make an adaptor for the ND filters, thank you for your tips.
