    I love the colors and the composition but for me the sea is tilted

    Its a nice scene you've captured but the glare from the low sun is just too overpowering I think. When shooting into the sun, using a smaller apeture will reduce glare. This also would also mean there would be more detail in the sky

    The idea is phenomenal and the color is great. My only suggestions would be to straighten out the horizon and do something (lens hood, filter) about the flare.

    :?:
    I agree with Spike (both about the composition and the flare) but I thought that if the light source was in the frame a hood wouldn't help with flare, and filters (even good ones) increase flare - more surfaces for internal reflections/refractions??

    Thanks for the feedback! I didn't notice the sea's tilt before...hmm... is there a way to maybe tilt the frame of the pic to make the horizon straight?

    I was also wondering what kind of filters would reduce that flair?

    Lens hood and a polarising filter.

    I'm with Will tho - I wouldn't point my camera straight into the sun. Needed a different angle I think (provided you didn't fall off the jetty - lol).

    Haha shoot I have a polarizing filter, too... :? I was also hiding under shelter during the picture, because you can't tell from the picture, but it was raining! had to protect the new camera

    i really like the fact that the horizon is tilted, it makes everything look like it's in motion.
