Very nice picture but I would personally like to see the horizon on the top thirds line with a little more of the foreground in view.

Overall I like the colour and layered look of the background. The bush in the forground anchors the image nicely.

The horizon seems tilted slightly too the left and is a little too close to the middle making the image a bit static.

A lower vantage point pushing the horizon up could possibly make the image more dynamic though there may be something in the foreground that you were trying to avoid.

What works:
-- The large boulder in the forground anchors the image though it might work better closer to the bottom of the image.

-- White balance and exposure seem to be right

What doesn't seem to work:
-- The line of the beach is cutoff at the left of the image so the viewer is led out of the photo rather than through it. Showing the full curve all the way to the pier I believe would give the image more depth. Also the peninsula on the right doesn't add anything as it is quite dark and doesn't show much detail.

(sorry Neil, I stole your method for this exercise as it helps with getting my ideas down)

Landscape class exercise "analysis" (more critical than the usual DPC comment):

Hits. Excellent shot, good use of layers of color, i.e., I love the subtle changes in color across the photo.

Misses. It seems to me there are some things to try with this photo that might make it even better. I like the bush in the foreground, but covering it with my hand, there's a suggestion that getting rid of it by cropping or cloning might enhance the layering effect of the scene. Hard to tell at this resolution too, but perhaps some noise reduction (small amount), might help it pop a little. Lastly, I can't really tell here, it might be a total illusion, but it gives the appearance of being pitched to the left a bit. See the bright light just below the trees for my reference point.

Hits: This is an almost perfect shot. Good color, composition, perspective, beautiful scene.

Misses: The only issue here to me is that the horizon is tilted to the right. Easy to fix in an editing program.

Next Time: A UV or polarizer filter might give more depth and pop to the clouds.

Hits. Good colors, good depth of field, good sharpness. I like the use of foreground here to bring the viewer into the photo.

Misses. However, in this case the background elements are small/far away and the foreground dominates instead of leading in. Perhaps if that one big rock weren't there, or you shot from a slightly different angle to exclude it, it would have been a better use of foreground lead-in.

Color Me Beautiful

Comment by Neil:
This is a really nice shot overall. However, while the color pops, and the clouds and trees are great, there's something about it that doesn't click for me. In the spirit of our "landscape class", I'll try to explain, but here I am having more trouble than usual isolating it, so I'll free associate a bit. At first, it looked a bit unclear, but staring more, it's reasonable for this size. The building edge seems more out of place, but I do like the trees on the bottom right. The left lower side of the shot is perhaps a tad too dark. And something about the clouds in the upper left--their color, or perhaps it's that they appear a bit blurry here and they are somewhat dominant.

Actually, I think analyzing this photo would be a great "class" exercise, because I'd love to see how others break it down in hits and misses (often, I break down photos this way...this aspect is a hit, this is a miss, etc.).
