As I shot this sunset on the Caribbean shoreline I reflected upon my days, the atmosphere helped me achieve a distinct feeling of well-being.

Ahhhh :love:

Your perspective is wonderful! Love how you seem close to the water near the front, like you could dip in and rake your fingers through it. And the dock- how it stretches close to you than builds away, at an angle, making it seem like it's shifting both closer to you and farther away at the same time.

I can't stop looking at it. ^^ Which is probably a good thing if I'm Critiquing it. :P

The colors are great. Not over-the-top and bold, but earthy, like they should be, and they blend together without mixing to much. Love the pink in the horizon, predicting a sunset. :)

The movement you create is wonderful. Whether it be up front, where the water is, with the currents swishing by so fast... or up by the sky, where the clouds seem to be circling around, preparing for a storm... you create a perfect sort of action that draws the viewer in.

But yet, the piece is still, too. The dock and the simple hope of sunset (hope, because I love it) is comforting, and even though it would be stupid to sit in the middle of that dock during a storm, you make it look inviting, like it would be safe.

Gorgeous, wonderful job. :highfive:

Ahh, another stunning picture from you.

I am in love with your series of pictures from the Caribbean. But, as with most pictures, I manage to find one or two things that bother me.

In this one, the first thing that catches my eye is the (very) slight blurring on some of the rocks and the pier. I don't know if this was handheld or with a tripod, but I happen to know that over 1 second is a pain to do handheld.

The other major thing that I noticed was some minor vignetting. It is more noticeable at the top corners, but nearly invisible at the bottom.

Lastly, I notice a little bit of color noise in the clouds and on the pier posts. It might have been caused by the (I'm assuming) low light. Nothing to really worry about.

Everything aside, it is a beautiful picture. None of the things I mentioned are things to be worried about, because to the casual observer, they are invisible.

Great job Wayson
