    Well I haven't posted here in a while, a long while actually, since March 1st. Since then I decided to try to make my own photography forum, but that failed.:grumpy: So, I'm back here! :)

    So my neighbour and I went down to a beach to try to catch a sunset. Unfortunately the clouds beat us to it, but I still got some good photos (well, I think so anyways :p). It was super windy too, so it made some cool pictures. So here they are:

    This was at our first location, kind of boring:

    And then we moved to the actual beach:

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Unfortunately there is no centre of interest in a rather flat shot. You need a vertical such as a person, sailboat, dock, lighthouse etc.

    Thank you! :)

    Yes, that sounds reasonable. But other than that is there anything else?

    Keep your horizons straight also... and maybe underexpose them a little?

    Aside from what was already said, your favorite pic is not sharp. camera shake, perhaps?

    You need a tripod or set your cam on something (not on the sand!).

    Enjoy!

    That's always my problem is the horizons. For some reason, I can never keep them straight. I always forget my tripod too. :meh:

    Yes it definitely would have been camera shake because the wind was coming from the north, I was wearing shorts and a T-shirt and I was FREEZING! So yes, that's where the shake would have come from. :blushing:

    You can correct that in post processing, but you may have to crop it a bit.

    Now that's something that's hard to fix! You'll definitely be shaking!! :lol:

    A graduated neutral density filter would bring up better detail in the waves in the foreground.
