nice shot Andreas! I think using a wide angle lens realy brings in the clarity and neutral density graduated filters work well in giving you a great exposure!

Andreas, I really like the shot and good use of the ND grad. What lowers the quality of the picture is the fact that your sunset filter is seated too low and as a result there is a red 'sunset' color where it ain't supposed to be. Made the same mistake myself many a time... Personally, I don't like these sunset filters, they make the sky a bit TOO colorful, but I know a lot of people like the effect.

Ryan, Deb, Margie, Les, Dennis, Andrew thank you so very much.
Dan thank you for your critique, but may I disagree with it? The sunset filter is seated very well in my opinion, and actually it has to be bit low, because if the photo is to be credible, the colour of the sky must also be reflected on the sea, at least close to where the sun is, where the colours are more intense. Anyway, I thank you for spending time with my image and am grateful for your constructive critique. Regards - Andreas
