Symona, this is VERY well composed. Good use of rule of thirds, you have the foreground, middle ground, and background set just right. Also, your horizon is perfectly level which is extremely important. Good job! You asked for tips to improve... The one thing that I think would add to this shot is simply different light. Shooting near sunrise or sunset when the light is golden and the skies are colorful always adds interest to an image. And you want some clouds, not a clear sky for sunsets. The clouds you have here are great, and would work very well with a dramatic twilight sky. But overall you exposed and composed this exceptionally well! #9372103
