Hello everybody,

This is one of the landscape shots of my hometown I have taken recently. I used PS to enhance the colors to make the sunset more dramatic.

Your comments and critiques welcomed.

Thanks and regards,

Quan

That is a beautiful scene. I see you have posted many times and I'm hoping to find more pictures on the forum of the Vungtau area. With the sea on one side and the bay on the other it is a scenic spot.

Wonderful picture, great composition, fantastic colors. This would be an even better picture if you could create a panarama from it, and extend the left side of the picture. But, on it's own, it's a GREAT shot. The only adjustment I would make would be to show a little less of the sky, and include the pole, or dock that the boats are tied to. But, once again, that's me being pretty picky.

Hello All,

Thanks for your comments and advice.

Hi HughesInNC,

Thanks for your advice. Actually, I have never tried panorama shots before since I thought it was very difficult to do: you must have a software, special tripod otherwise it will take a lot of time to stitch with PS. I've just found found a software Panorama Factory on the web and downloaded a demo version to try. It was just great! Maybe I'll try shooting panorama sooner or later. Re this photo, I digged out my archived but it seemed all the photos in this scene did not match since I had not had an intention to make it pano. Will try again though.

Regards,

Quan

Quan Tran: Enjoy working with panoramic, it's often very fun. Occasionally, it's frustrating, though! LOL! Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Lovely shot, good composition (personally I would not want anything added to the left) just as already mentioned slightly less sky would bring the horizon to the 1/3 rule but not a biggie. The first thing that caught my eye and is making this a little uncomfortable is the horizon is off by just under 1 deg which although small is distracting. Once corrected you will have an all round good shot.

Nice work andfantastic scenery!!
