Default 17 Mile Drive

Took this somewhere on 17 Mile Drive. My first time shooting seascape sunsets. I like it! Have to be quick though Sunset happens in a snap of a finger Next time I'll try to get the waves in a more natural looking way.

Thanks for looking!

G'day CM

Agree with ^ yes mate, great image

cc if I may ... I find the large rocks in the foreground a bit "dark & dominant" [which of course is what you wanted them to be]. When I scroll up/down and place the screen bottom just at the point where the lighter zone at the top of the rocks now becomes the bottom frame of the image, my eyes now roll over those large rocks and into the middle-distance, see the swirling waters etc and off into the sunset ~ so it now looks more exciting

Hope this helps ...
Regards, Phil

Awesome image. I didn't read Ozzie's comment until after I scrolled up and down and I agree with Ozzie. Otherwise.....it works for me. Great job! Congrats.
