This is a beautiful photograph. Taken at the right time and the right place. This photograph just wants to make you be the place =SBrynes was, so you can see how beautiful the picture was. The colours of the pictures were amazng and really makes the photo stand out. this is a 5 star for everything as you can see why. This artist has the most amazing photography to have. The colours are bright with the sun reflecting on the water to really bring the Beautiful out of the photo. If you want to see more amazing photography go this person right here

Quiet, peaceful, beautiful - that's what one could think about this photograph. It's essence lies in the simplicity, yet one would have to wait many days to witness a view like that.

The edge of the water here isn't a straight line - and it's good. Same goes for the coastline. The coast seems to end at some point in the background, yet the clouds are taking the eyes further, like in a relay race, where sky takes the baton from the land and runs uphill, passing by the sun.

The rocks in the foreground don't let the image fall to the "yet another casual coastline wallpaper" basket.

On the contrary, I'd have some minor reservations. The sun looks "dirty" - while this is quite normal when one "glues together" few images, it looks bad and requires minor adjustments to level the brightness - not only in the middle but also around, so the clouds won't look like they've met a lighted match. I'd also lower the blue colour spectrum. While it isn't an eyesore if one looks at the clouds right above the water, upper right corner of the image looks like it's been painted. And rocks like these here can have a livid, darker colour, but they shouldn't shine a blue light - and while it's subtle, comparing to the sky, it's showing, that without a doubt, that blue colour was "upped" too much.

My ratings:
Vision - I'd say it's above average, as it's better than many images "out there".
Originality - Same as above, mainly because of rocks and the layout of land and clouds.
Technique - You're almost there!
Impact - I'd say if I were to put that on a "Relaxing music" box cover, it would be perfect. But we're talking about "art" here, so I have to cut some from the max.

Summing up - it's the "final touch" that separates the "magnificent" from the "average" photos. And you, Sean, are already halfway there :)

Overall I'm with the critique by Pufcio here - it's really really hard to do an original sunset photo, and there's a lot going for this one. It's hard to make up for the absence of a single subject of interest in a landscape / sunset composition, but the detail in the rocks goes a long way.

Do you find difficulties combining shots with moving sun and waves and clouds?

The blue on the rocks is just amazing! Nice shot, although the sun looks a bit shopped? I guess you manipulated the clouds to get mor composition :) If my assumption is wrong, I'm truely sorry!
