    I think it would have been better had it not been split in half.

    agree... nice capture, but the rule of thirds would still help some here.

    Potentially a really good shot there, but you might want to have a read on the Rule of Thirds. That was just a quick link for your use, but find other stuff by googling. Makes a world of difference in landscape photography.

    I don't mind splitting the horizon in certain situations as to show symmentry in reflections and such. But typically that type of composition is a bit boring.

    I agree about the split, try editing it to follow the rule of thirds.
    I also wanted to see it in color! By calling it a sunset, I was all set to see vibrant colors. This looks more like storm rolling in.

    I like rule breaking. Esp. in a case like this where you have something to show in the foreground that needs all it's parts. If you try covering the bottom some to make a faux-thirds-rule photo, it's just not right. I think there can be creative ways around this....maybe you can do a negative of the same shot and put them together side by side... maybe use PS to color 2/3 of the picture to help give in to some of the ROT idea. Maybe crop at an angle to change the feel entirely.

    I can see where the others are making accurate statements, but I think you could save this one with a little creative work on it.

    Now, being really picky aside, most people would say that was a really cool picture. Including me.

    I also like to break the rules especially the rule of thirds sometimes when it's justified. For this picture it's not justified IMHO.

    I would have shown half of the sky it shows now as there is really not that much interest.

    And yes... I want to see it colour!

    the only thing i would do is crop some of the sky. Other than that, I like it. This, in my opinion, is one of the times that the thirds rule goes out the window.

    This is the Black and White forum-LOL
    I agree with the thirds rule here. Not so much boring but not quite right either.
