Sunset silhouette
Lens: 18mm Camera: K10D ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F8 

Would appreciate some C & C on what works and what doesn't please.

Perfect picture as far as I'm concerned. The upper part of the sky has some weird lines in it, but I'm going to assume that's due to compression. For the rest, really, there's nothing to criticise.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for the reply. The clouds are striated from wind, I hope these lines are what you refer to.

Hey Tas, nice colors on the pic. how ever the angle doesnt work for me. To the right, the picture is dark and to the left, the pic is light. A better angle would have rendered the beautiful scenery in a better way. just my 2 cents!!

Thanks
Suresh

No, when I first looked at it I was using one of my university's crappy PCs, but at home those lines are gone.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for the feedback, glad it wasn't a problem with my kit/eyes etc.


G'day Suresh,

I took a number of shots of this sunset from a number of different positions. There were things I liked about the shot above like the way the jetty and clouds converge on the horizon for example. I wasn't sure if it really worked though, so I appreciate your comment. I will try to paste a different shot from that evening as I believe it might address the criticisms of the above shot.

I much prefer the first one. Users of left-to-right written languages enter a picture with their eyes in the bottom left corner, and end somewhere on the right. The walkway in the first picture follows this pattern perfectly and takes the eye on a pleasant journey throught the photo.

Thanks again Kevin. I'm fond of them both, but expect that neither is perfect. I was just happy to have been there with such a beautiful scene and be able to capture it.
