This is Sunset Beach in No. Ca. I think this shot would have worked better had I been higher withjust a little of thegrass tops showing.

And a vertical shot. With the clouds it was pretty awesome.

the second shot has great colours!if i was pressed to make a comment i would say that the horizon in the second shot is too much towards the middle of the frame. But in any case lovely work!

i agree with pavaros...the horizon would be better if it were lowerin the picture i think...

i like the first one

it would be hard to paint though

I'm on board with the rest - the 2nd shot is great! Great timing to capture those colors. Same suggestion on the horizon line. Keep the posts coming!

Like others were saying, and as I've read, the thirds rule usually makes a picture look better. So as an example, I've produced 2 images:

Now many people have suggested that more sky and less water would have been better, I notied that moving the horizon UP rather than down, has produced a really nice contrast, where as the upper sky has too much plain wash in it.

The first one is a bit nicer, but the second one created an interesting look.

Good tip, as you can see in my post above, I never thought of that. Thank-you.

BTW, nice shots ImKayd1.
