Another compelling image.

This time with the sun setting near one of the rule of thirds intersections.

Beautiful scene.

Great colour and that low black cloud on the left balances the RHS nicely.

It would be nice to live in that hose and be able to walk down and get sunsets like this....john

A stunning scene. Beautiful color and composition. Were it mine I would clone out the architecture as for me it interferes with the tranquility of the scene.

That would be a good image.

But I'm like John, and would LOVE to have this setting outside my window. :D

I'm going to do a John here and would personally chop out the bottom of the sea and dark rocks, fix the distortion/ squint horizon and remove most of the purple cast. Not a criticism on the photo as it is a good shot in a lovely setting.

I actually prefer the original to the cropped version.

While I agree that the purple cast looks odd, the two rocks that are in the bottom left corner are (to me) an essential part of the image.

In the uncropped image you can form a curve from the bottom left corner, along the rocks (towards the steps), then out again along the shore to the distant rocks, and on to the setting sun.

My eye then follows the line of light across the water to the middle of the bay, then across and up the steps (which the original curve 'points' towards) to the house.

Take away those two starting rocks, and the whole flow though the image breaks down.

I removed them as they were too dark and have little to no detail but i see where you're coming from in respect to leading the eye. I just don't like almost central horizons and thought a slight crop may help with that, i lost a lot trying to correct the distortion.

Not to take away from a fine shot, composition as with all our photography and art it is a personal thing. It's the purple cast that i struggle with and find distracting.
Max, ignore my crop.

Out of interest, which lens and filters were used?

Chris - I agree with you on central horizons - often they just don't work, and a suitable crop can transform a image.

I think the reason why the central horizon is OK in this one is that the horizon only extends less than half way across the image, and the sky itself only fills ~ 1/3 of the scene - just as it would with a 1/3 horizon.
