Nice shot but the kayu block the sunset. U should try from another angle.
Also, when doing sunset, I will take at interval shots of 5 minutes and then I can choose the best picture.
In this case, maybe, its a matter of life and death, if u were out with the USJ gang on the makan2 trip....and if u took too much time taking photos... the food would have been gone :D

May I comment?
Not to discourage but maybe elicit some comments from the pros like arwen and franly about composition. Is it not correct to put so many visual 'lines' in the middle of the picture? there is the horizon which ran horizontally thru the center line of the pic and the pole running vertically down the center of the pic as well. It sort of divides the pic into 4 equal quardrants. I read somewhere that a nice composition is done in 'thirds' not 'halves'

You have your point too chang... but really, I am not really a pro but a part time amateur :D, I think the more serious "error" is the post, it blocks the sunset, then the right side,...others can sometime be "compose" using cropping (cutting) if the post is on the right or left or below the sunset.
I would also crop the lower part so that the sky show 2/3 and the lower 1/3. The reason, I would show more of the sky, since it is a sunset shot. My 2 cents. :D

hmmm ok... no lines blocking... but is the photo parameters ok? I find that if i blow the picture up, i get speckles... on the sky portion.. i'm not sure if it's noise or insufficient light.

It's not really that bad a photo.
I like the beautiful evening colours you've managed to capture.
The photo will look stunning with a bit of adjustments in framing and composition. That's all.
In the net, you can find millions of photo galleries.
I study other people's photos everyday to improve myself. Even the pros do that all the time.
Just keep on shooting!
Have a nice day! :)

Your Canon Powershot A520's photo of the sunset seem to be extremely "NOISY". Similar, if I use ISO1600 from my canon Dslr.
It doesnt show the ISO in the EXIF or ISO cannot be set on the camera?. Hmmmm :confused:
I even use a Noise filter software and the result lessen a bit.

Another version of the photo :D
I think I have sharpen them way too much... :eek:

Whatever it is, Kress, I like the sunset photo you posted. It was nice. Reminding me of my hometown where we used to bike to the river mouth at Byram Estate where the sea meets, to observe the sunset. Got lots and lots of photos on that sunset in different seasons... I like your photo. :)

Err...now that's the way Orchi likes it...posting links to the beautiful pictures...thanks Franky:)
Ahem...dear Kress:)...photography is like Jedi knighthood(which you have earned recently)...err...learn from the masters you must...
Do find the time to join their sessions...http://www.usj.com.my/bulletin/upload/forumdisplay.php?f=95 ...You would certainly be rewarded...
May the force be with you...:)

It is a nice photo which I must say.... reminds me of my fishing trips during single time :)
We were just into why it is so "grainy" if zoom in and I go it into my microscope. :D
Kress, another trick is to take a few more shots... when u r travelling. Then submit to Shutter Stock... to earn some money.
