I did not plan on taking this photo. I was doing some research with sea turtles in Georgia and saw this and took 2 shoots. I did not have my nice setup either. Nor did i even know about the competion. So when I saW that I took this in the dates I was quite happy.

I guess for the competition and opportunity to get a better shot next time, the feedback received one may consider constructive. However, the fact that it looks soooo natural, unplanned, unrehearsed, my definition of raw, this is a wonderful shot. Absolutely beautiful. To me, if this were more planned or editted, it may have lost that natural beauty. Im partial to those shots that capture nature in its purest form. Had I voted, this would have received a 9.

Cool beach shot! Would be cooler if you could have gotten the silhouete of someone. Horizon looks a little tilted too.

Would have liked to seen the entire reflection of the sun! Maybe even have that more as the subject by putting it near the middleof the photo. BEAUTIFUL colors.

Nice colour but the sun is too central for my liking. A little more foreground would be nice.

The horizon doesent appear to be straight to me, but what a powerful sunset here.....

Gorgeous color! I wish there was a little more something in this photo other than the water, the sky and the sun. Maybe a sillhouetted tree or person in the foreground or something. Just my opinion, though.

Nice hues. Would have liked to have seen a different crop/composition though... A little more of the reflection and a little less sky... Very nice.

Colours look a bit too unnatural, I find the sun too centered and your horizon is not straight.

Your title suggests that the subject is the reflection of the sun on the beach which, if it is, i can't figure out why you've put it at the very bottom of the frame cutting off a portion of it. As for the photo I thinking pointing the camera a bit more to the right and down so we get rid of that dark mass of cloud on the far left and include all of the reflection on the beach would help the photo be more focused on your subject.

Horizon. Plus, it looks to me like a filter (welders glass) was used to take the photo.

I've seen this picture 289 times and all it reminds me of is ORANGE JELLO

Lovely color but the tilted horizon hurts the image's overall impact.

Nice, but it looks much nearer to red reflection as golden color is mostly just around the sun. Very nice capture though.

Stunning

This would be better if you straightened the horizon, as it is dipping to the right. Also - would have really liked to see the entire reflection of the sun whereas it is cropped off on the bottom
