Do still get full sunsets at this time of the year?
The horizon looks tilted to the right.
Otehr than that the photo is lovely, though the sun is still very bright. The glow on the rocks (covered in what?) is really nice.
very pretty. you live there or just visiting?
Use the perspective tool in GIMP or Photoshop to fix that horizon, then crop back to a square canvas.
The sun looks too over exposed for me, but otherwise there's some great lighting there. Nice capture.
The sun looks heavy, as if it were weighing down the horizon.
I usually love saturated colors, especially saturated blacks, but I don't feel it here. My 2 cents.
That's a nice shot and with a bit of work will be a very good one. The composition is good, decent foreground interest, nice island sihouettes, and the water's well exposed. Fix the tilt and tone down the area around the sun and you have it.
oh F*CK this is gorgeous!!! i love it just how it is!
thanks for the input everyone, I actually did not notice that the horizon was tilted but can plainly see that now that you mention it. I too thought the sun was a bit bright. You have given me some great suggestions for editing.
abraxas, I do live in Alaska but in this particular location I was visiting. The photo was taken in quaint little town called Seldovia.
LaFoto, as you know the days are long in Alaska these days. The sun does set but at it's darkest point (in southern alaska) it still only appears like twilight, and that is for a brief time before it starts getting light again. Further north the sun stays pretty high in the sky all day long. Red sea weed covered the rocks, the sea weed in this light was truly gorgeous. It was my attempt to encorporate more of that in the foreground but this picture does not do it justice.
can anyone say if the tilted horizon was an effect of the lens (canon 10-22mm) or my composition?
Thanks TedE, I am glad you liked it!
