    I took a trip to the oregon coast last night and managed to capture a shot of the sunset over the pacific ocean. This is my first sunshot shot and i am still learning the basics. Please leave me your comments and feedback.

    I would crop about half of the bottom out of the shot. Doing so will accent the colors in the sky more, which is what you expect to be the main focus in a sunset shot.

    I respectfully disagree. I would crop out the top portion to get the horizon out of the center. The waves are spectacular. The color and texture and the sun over the waves is very beautiful. I would enphasize that over the more typical sky. JSD

    I see your point on that, a good spot would be where the sky "flattens out" and loses texture. My concern with cropping the top was the loss of space by the rocks. Either way, top or bottom, it needs crooped. IMO. Or crop the bottom just below the first big wave.

    Perhaps bump the exposure up a little on the foreground?

    I say WOW, I love this shot.

    I hope you do not mind, I cropped this a little, real quick


    My wife loves red/orange colors and the sea.
    I would purchase this photo from you, for her. If you are interested in selling this, let me know.
