    Another shot of the pier with a little more light before the sun disappeared. I'm kind of new at this landscaping so any and all critique is welcome, I want to get up to speed quick, thanks!
    I'll say this myself about this pic, it could've been composed a little better possibly.

    This looks good. I like the colour in sky and the way you have used the jetty as a leading line. Also the people on the jetty give perspective to the scene.

    like this one, as much as I love long expo this is a nice one with the light off the waves and the city on the horizon.

    Thanks, guys. I have to ask what you honestly think of the lens quality, in your opinion is it doing well? Maybe it's hard to tell with the way the compression messes with pics. I don't seem to do it as well as others. Thanks for any input.
    BTW, that pic was taken @ ISO 1000, 1/250th, F/11, + 0.3 step, 24 mm and center weighted average. Suggestions on better settings???

    Cool shot and perfect moment as the sun sets over the skyline.
    As far as critique I can only give my personal choices which would be to flip the image horizontally so that the pier leads into the frame from the left. I would also crop out much of the foreground water as there's nothing there to really "anchor" the composition.

    Is this more like what you'd imagined?

    I get what you're saying and that definitely looks good, it pulls everything in but I was testing this lens to see how it performed wide as a landscape lens and I was also using the 3rds rule, the top 1/3rd being the sky. Maybe it would've looked better with the sky being 2/3rds. I'm sure I'll crop in on pics in the future as it can help a lot, depending. Thanks for your input.

    Yeah, pretty much exactly as I imagined!

    The wider the lens, the more it shrinks distant objects, like that city skyline. Good wide angle landscape shots are often built around very prominent foreground interest.

    Thanks for that, I'll keep it in mind as I'm sure it will improve some of my pics.
