That's a fine Sunset shot.
I regret one thing : the main subject is full centered.

I'm disagree, it is perfectly balanced.

I'm with Olivier on this . I suggest this variant according with the rules of composition

Thank you for the constructive criticism Smile

Yes, in hindsight, it probably would have been stronger off-centre.

This one won't be to everyone's taste Very Happy in fact, I'm having second thoughts about the HDR myself.

I agree, centering the subject made the left part of the frame irrelevant - but it's a nice sunset indeed,

Be sure it was constructive, Alex.
I hope It wasn't considered as rude.

I would have liked the man to be on the left side, walking to the sun.

It's nice to have discussions like this ,allways we can learn .Agree , I would like too the person more towards the left.
In that variant of composition , that I proposed ( I hope I didn't offended Alex ,just friendly talk between photographers ) there is some detail on the horison to the left ,tried to keep that.
It is also possible to crop in the other way , to have the man towards the left with full sun in the photo , but it is going to have some irrelevant horison on the right . But still , maibe it will be better , what do you think ?

No offence taken Smile we all need criticism to improve, right? Not like any of my friends are interested in photography anyway Laughing personally, I like it with the sun on the right.

I'll try and find the original images soon - buried somewhere on my hard disk...

In the meantime:

This is more powerfull , I think?! The lack of details on the right 1/3 of the horison bothers , or not ?

Your first version Teo,there is more movement of going towards the sun. This is a great discussion,I learn more easily by seeing the result than by written words about it. Very Happy

Teo,

Yes, like this - adagio: the correct framing is the strongest - even if the concept of "correct" lies in a myriad of acceptable frame points,

This picture has potential.
Trial in square format Smile

I was to say this , here there is more movement present in the first one ,as it was just done in the last seconds. You can feel it .Probably that's why I chosed it first.
Big discussion here , I agree with you ,Moira , thank you for pointing this .
In the second , the movement isn't there , it's potential , it's going to happen .But the second framing is more powerful ,on the other hand ,because it involves all the energy of the future movement. A lot of philosophy here eh ? Laughing


Renato ,I like it too.

Olivier interesting the Square framing also .

Teo, That's the beauty of a photograph/art we can all see something different. Very Happy

Perfectly right, mo, and the beauty of talking with people that you share a passion with. Thank you !

I'm on a monthlong photo tour of US national parks in winter. Arches NP is amazing!

I'm home after my tour of nine US national parks, with a few national monuments and seashores thrown in for good measure. Eureka Dunes in Death Valley were pretty special (partly because of the difficulty in getting there).

On Ansel Adams' traces. Wink
Surely you had wonderful moments during this trip, hadn't you ?

It was a pretty special trip. Back in the workaday world, it's hard to believe it actually happened! Here's Vernal Fall in Yosemite, Nikkor 35-200mm f3.5, D600.

Caught by Yosemite Magic.

Beautiful, Gaeger. Smile

Wow, Gaeger, you've accomplished a real feat! Would you consider, not only compiling a set of photos showing the highlights of your trip, but also more logistical aspects, such as load out in terms of gear for your trip. What your mental checklist entailed. What you took, what you had to leave behind, what you left behind that you wish you would have taken, and what you took that ended up being wasted space. Did you take any film gear, or did you shoot exclusively digital?

I'm asking this because I'm interested in taking a road trip later this year on my bike, where I will be focused primarily on photography, and load-out will be critical because of the small amount of space I'll have available.
