Pros: Nailed the shutter speed. Love the motion of the photo and the frame.
Cons: The saturation are under played, had you brought out the colors in this photo an easy 10.

Really though, great job

IMO this could stand a bit more sharpening...it seems that you added a gaussian blur and made the trees a bit to soft IMO

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Artistically this is a very pleasing shot, with the curving coastline, sunset and horizon relatively high. I like the softness of the water contrasting with the edges of the cliffs. Technically there is little wrong with it, your settings are perfect for a landscape/seascape, and indicate use of a tripod, all in your favour. The ambient light is lovely and soft.

The only thing truly missing from this picture is the WOW! factor. I hate to pimp more usage of pp, but in this case I think a big old hit of contrast and saturation could have done wonders. Also, assuming that you listed your pp steps in the order that you did them, it's better to do your pp first, then resize, then sharpen, and save for web.

As a final nitpick I would have gone for either a lower or higher POV to add drama to the scene. Quite a few landscape/seascape shots like this win Free Studies, so I would advise looking at past FS winners and see what it was that gave them that edge. Yes, pp may be part of it, but you still need to start with a good photo.

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

Susan

this is a very beautiful shot...but the haziness really detracts from it...I'm wondering if a gradient map could have helped that out???

What a beautiful place! If only I ever can make it to Ireland, I could easily spend hours just at this location.
