Spectacular framing of a dramatic scene. You should do well in this challenge.

I am usually anti-sunset, but this is one of the best in the challenge. 9

6 - Good. A more finely tuned crop at the top, minimizing the fill-flash effect (apologies in advance if it is not fill-flash), make this better in my opinion, as well as some tweaking in pp for added drama/depth, though I realize difficult in basic.

"WOW" factor here in this magical image..... I love it..... A "10" from me.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow. I might have croped out most of the interior of the cave. The detail seems to just be distracting. I really like the silhouettes of the person and the rocks and the reflection off the wet sand.

wow fantastic. -9

Beautiful!
I like how you have managed to keep some detail in the roof of the cave.
Sunset is a given.

Good luck

less rock around the outside of the frame would maybe make this a stronger image, great sunset colors and silhouette.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/15/2006 06:33:23 AM
more cropping would do it justice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/15/2006 12:35:05 AM

This is really beautiful, great framing and colours.

Pretty sunset, and the figure gives the whole picture scale - both the frame and the enclosed seascape.

Stunning capture well framed

Great composition & color. Lighting is great.

Nicely framed slice of paradise, beautifully exposed for the wonderful sky. The inclusion of a human silhouette is what makes the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent.. I like it a lot.
