Trying to get some opinions about the composition of this photo. I don't really do alot of these types of shots and was hoping to get some opinions of this attempt. Thanks in advance.

Overall I like it , but I think you need to crop off the light sticking out of the left corner.

its a rather intersting effect.. shot into the sun such as this are usually a disaster, but this one seems to work..

the composition works for me.. i am deliberating on a need to crop a bit off the bottome, but maybe not..

I had performed one crop on the photo already but for some reason i didn't occur to me to get rid of that light as you pointed out. Now when I look at it again it sticks out like a sore thumb! Thanks

This is very unusual... Slick and eye catching...It works well.

I think i saw this scene in "Dawn of the Living Dead" Or was it, "Night of the Living Dead". Dawn... definitely Dawn.

the color and lines of this shot work for me.

the street-lights; the anonymity of the people, the glow of the emerging boardwalk...

composition A+ from me!

Thanks for the responses everyone. I think I got lucky on this one by just shooting the picture then composing it later. By chance I had the camera preset for an action mode taking pictures of birds. Thefast shutter is likely the only reason this worked and why thesun didn't totally blow out the image. The photo has been darkened slightly, a red bias added via PE3, then one crop. Occasionally I get a shot worth risking a serious critique and thought I would give this one a shot.

I tried getting some sea gulls while I was at the beach as well but the colors were all wrong. I suppose part of the problem is that the water on the east coast is brown even when it's clean:-). Maybe another day in the summer will yield better results on the birds.

Thanks again for all who took the time out to look and give some opnions.
