    sure is a lot of red... is this supposed to be a bloody beach? what is your "art" that you want help with? what is the idea of using a red filter?

    There has always been somthing about a monotone photograph that apeals to me and I like how the softness makes the image seem more abstract.

    However, I think I would like the photograph more if it was in a different color like a more red than orange or a cool cyan. Also, the boat and the bird are distracting to me, like they got in the way while you were trying to capture the sunset.

    I thought that red/orange add a mood to get a warm feeling. And seagull, boat to add some peacefull feeling.

    Regards

    I agree on the boat, not on the bird.

    I'd have to go opposite. the bird distracts, but the boat feels like a part of the scenery.

    I agree with the above that you should perhaps use a warmer color, though.

    Is this one OTE?

    to be honest...this photo doesn't do much for me. The boat and the bird are really distracting..the red is overpowering.

    im with ben. the bird seems out of place but the boat is ok. i dont think both of them need to be there tho. if i had to choose, id get rid of the bird. the boat seems like fit well on the horizontal plane, but hte bird just seems out of place being that low and close to the horizon line.

    the color is over powering, so over powering that the detail is lost. but i guess you can justify anything if you call it art.

    either way im not moved by this shot.
