    what could i have done to make this better? first thing that comes to my mind is use a polarising filter only its a fish eye lens and to my knowledge there aren't any available...

    Maybe if u shot this alittle later or sooner (right now its either roughly 10am or 2pm), try noon, the sun will be at the center of the sky, and maybe if u bring down the frame abit, so that we could see more of the see (so that there is a nice balance between the see and the sky... 50/50)!

    And finally try shooting this shot at nite with the moon-light, i think u would achieve a nice shot, and with abit of luck u might even get the stars in there too! ;)

    Sorry! :)

    Ok, I agree with Saeid about shooting at a different time of day. However, I would also consider shooting off to the right somewhat. This would remove the spit of land on the left so that the sea is symmetrical and offset the sun from the centre.

    I like the idea of removing the spit of land. But I also like the sun where it is. It gives it a really great symmetry. I reckon you could have a lot of fun going for something really abstract with this shot, bring on ps. I want a fish-eye so bad.

    wife sez it would look cooler with a surfer in it or something. very nice anyway, like the symmetry also. what was focal length?

    I don't think you need a polarizer per se, but I think not shooting directly into the sun would have helped.
