"Glorious Afternoon"

What technical feedback would you like if any?

What artistic feedback would you like if any?

The sun ended up slightly off center. But when I centered it, I liked the slightly off-center one better…probably due to visual-weight of the grasses. Opinions?

Pertinent technical details or techniques:

(If this is a composite, etc. please be honest with your techniques to help others learn)

44mm, ISO 400 (to get shutter speed up to stop grasses), 1/125 sec @ f/16, Canon 24-70 f/2.8 lens.

Hey @Doug_Blunt.
Such a good sunset. I like how the colour temperature give that warm feeling, great moody image for a winter day.
The details on the grasses is great, when you open the full image it really shows every branch.
I would like to see a bit more exposure in the sand and a bit more contrast, maybe a bit of dodge and burning but it may unbalance the sky exposure.
And maybe clean some of the more prominent black spots on the sand that are a bit distracting.
Thanks for sharing,
Cheers
