My 3 friends sat on a bench for me, watching a sunset. I really love this pic.

nice colours

did you intend the image to be so soft. imge does look out of focus. Not sure if you were trying to focus on sunset or friends. this could be due to the lo res coversion to post here.

Composition is great in this shot. Really nice work

The original shot isn't so fuzzy and out of focus... don't know why that happened. I did try to shape it a little in ps.

yea tht would explain y ur subjects are out of focus bcse your cam would have set its focal point to infinity. Usually meaning anything within a certain distance of the cam (Some big distance) will be out of focus) stil a nice shot mate

But then the far shoreline should be sharp, nothing in this photo looks in focus. It to me looks like it was probably taken handheld at a slower shutter speed, introducing some camera shake.
After looking at the exif, SS was 1/350 at F/3.2. So, shutter speed should be fast enough to rule out camera shake. Possibly a DOF issue with F3.2, it could also be that the camera failed to focus.
I do like the idea behind the picture though.
