Greetings from the Critique Club!

This is a pleasant sunset image, with nice lighting and adequate composition with the sky dominating. But the main reason it did so poorly, imnsho, is a) it's entered in a Free Study and everyone is trotting out their best pic, so the competition is much tougher than usual and this image is quite blah. We've all seen pics like this many, many, many times before, so there is nothing new here to see; and b) there is no focal point. There is no ship or any other item of interest on the horizon to help draw the sky and sea together. Well, yes there is the light...but there needs to be more. If you are a serious seascape person, check out the work of 21.gif Cuttooth and see what you can learn.

Overall an ok effort, but there needs to be a whole lot more before you can wow the crowd here. Trust me, I know from experience how hard it is! Please continue to shoot and enter and I look forward to seeing more of your work soon.
