Thank you for the feedback, my friend! So, do you think a bit distortion session to the left sideat PS.would be good to balance the low horizon on the right?

I found the first shot more satisfying. The inclusion of the pavement and the lonely post adds a touch of solitude not as readily apparent in the second shot.

Like yourself I too am drawn to the ocean especially at either dusk or dawn.
Looks like I did a good job deciding to post the first picture also as a result of a second thoughtVery precisely put comparison, indeed, frommy tasteful friend fromfar faraway beyondthe ocean!

Aloha!

It might bedistortion or just need a little straightening IMHO

I wonder if you've tried the DXO optics pro trial itseems quite good for

lens correction, worth a try and I am interested in your opinion...........musket

Thank you for the suggestion and thediagram displaying the imperfection!

Assuming that I'll be using the 17mm end of this lens very often, oh! and the 10mm end of my prospective Sigma 10-20! I'll need to try the DXO you mentioned, and then let you know my impression about it!

Btw, simplyrotating to left would't be a remedy, soI applied a quick Edit > Transform > Distort session at the Photoshop! LookslikeI have a straight horizon now.I'll be delighted to learn your opinion; )

Beautiful shots, both!

Generally speaking, when a photo has a distant subject, as is the case in these, I find foreground elements to be a distraction. (To be sure, if you hadn't included any of the quay in either shot, we'd be wondering if you were demonstrating your ability to walk on water! [suB]:-)[/suB]) So I'm going to go against the grain here (Surprise! Surprise!) and say that I prefer the second.

Number one seems to me to be much stronger and dramatic composition. The path of light from the hole in the clouds all the way to the pavement is enforced by the counter angle of the dock. The post in the front center is a little troublesome but still acceptable as a compositional element. I think that the darker area to the right of the post works, it helps define the transition from dark to light.


Number 2 seems more mundane. There are so many pictures of just water, horizon, then sky.
