Default Golden Beach Sunset- Looking for input.

I can't decide which of these shots I like the most. Your input would be appreciated. Thanks

Steve

# 3 for me. Good placement if the horizon and nice reflection.

#1: The area of shadow in the lower right is a bit distracting to my eye.
# 2: Good, but I like the lighter tones of #3
#4 is OK, but I like the sand in the foreground in #2 & #3.

BTW, all of these images show some pin-cusion distortion which is visbile in the convave curvature evident in the horizon. You should be able to fix it in post processing (especially if you use Photoshop Elements).

I prefer the composition of #3, as well. But for me, it's more of a wave/shore thing. Not too much shore and not all wave. Great colors and perfect exposure!

Thanks Jeannie, I think that is my fav as well.

I corrected the distortion in all the shots so the horizon is now level. Thanks Jehan.

#2 and #3 are my favs with #3 coming in first. Same reason as Jeannie, I love the diagonal surf / sand line created in each.
