Spedangie,

Where was this shot taken? Just curious.

I think you've gotten the hang of posting by now.

The second shot seems better technically but the first shot has more oomph to it (technical description for a better composed shot).

It would be interestingto see the first shor with the sun lower on the horizon. That might create a slightly better shot of the sun. Careful when taking direct shots of the sun. Blown sensors are the worst case scenarion.

Aloha and thanks for joining us.

Welcome to the forum, Spedangie. The first shot has potential. As Selvin mentioned, the sun is a bit high (too bright). As a suggestion, wait till the sun is much lower in the horizon and meter on the water. As for the second picture, it's a serene, peaceful image but it lack interest. You need a more dramatic sky.

Spedangie,

Welcome. The first shot is really good. Like was mentioned before, this shot would be perfect if the sun was just a little lower

I deleted your problem posts. I like the first photo but I don't understand it. With the sun that high above the horizon, why is everything so dark.

I don't care too much for the second shot. The focus is soft and the depth of field is not to good. If you didn't use a tripod, it would be a good idea in the future.

I'd guess that the camera metered the light coming straight from the sun, thus under exposing the entire image?
