    When you photograph water, you should really watch the line of your horizon, in the photo of the broken part of the Seven Mile Bridge (it is BROKEN in part?????? :shock: ) it is so slanted, I fear for my desk and the deluge that might happen, what with all the water flowing out of your frame!!! :shock: <-again!

    The sunset photos are nice, but I feel the heads should not have been in your photo. Plus it is a tad on the very dark side ... I know the sun told your meterings to stop down further, but in the end a lot of detail got lost that could have been there. Plus in both the sun (your primary subject, of course) is in the very centre of the frame, which is never quite as good, as a photo gets too balanced that way, and too balanced means it tends to be boring. So next time you go out, you focus (central focus point, I assume), and then quickly recompose to put your primary subject off centre.

    thank you for the tips. i have a bunch more i was just kinda going though them. pics the photo of the broken bridge was actually taken in a car while moving at 70 mph so that also may be the reason for it being off.

    I like the colors and moody feel of this image, you've also captured a lovely said boat and great sunset.

    on the downside:

    you might be able to crop out the heads and also crop out from the top the darkest area of the clouds as they really don't add to the composition. this will almost make it a pano look. I agree that centering the sun in the frame should be avoided and it also appears that the image is a bit soft (not in sharp focus).

    Here's my quick edit of the bridge. I think it's a great shot, and you could really make it awesome by working with the original. This is what I did with the compressed version.
