Commenting as part of my Team Suck duties...

Beautiful sunset photo Wendy. I particularly love the clouds and the colours. If I was to pick on this at all, it would be the composition (I guess), in that the shoreline, the horizon and the boat/surfski/kayak/surfboard/? are all at different angles, and the boat/surfski/kayak/surfboard/? breaks the horizon line... I think the later of the two is the bigger issue really, because I think that the image could have worked with a variety of angles if only the horizon wasn't intersected as it is. Also, the plant in the water on the right is a minor distraction, though, I can see that losing that would have lost you the rule of thirds composition (which I like)... tough call. One last thing... horizon is a bit to close to centred... perhaps taking the photo from closer to the ground might have got the horizon lower and separated it from the boat/surfski/kayak/surfboard/?... but I wasn't there and I don't know what you could and couldn't have done here. :)

I hope this is useful feedback and doesn't come across too critical. I really do like this image, but think there was so much potential in it, but for a few minor things.

Did well with this. 5.8 in a freestudy is darn good in my book. I skipped the vote on it of course.

Nice use of silhouette. I might've cloned out that little "blob" on the right side below the horizon.
