*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An appealing image that is assumed to meet the challenge.

I get the chance to comment again! I like that you have captured a natural moment in your dance the way you have it makes the image far more special and meaningful than a posed shot. The sky is very colourful and adds a lovely backdrop to this romantic scene. This sort of exposure will always be difficult but I think I would like to see the foreground and sea brightened up a little at the same time making the figures true silhouettes. Correcting the tilt as I mentioned before is also essential to complete the image.

All in all a nice scene that just needs a bit more tweaking to increase its impact, thanks for your submission, Sid

A colourful sunset with added interest from the two figures but let down a little by the sloping sea, good luck
