Wow, that is breathtaking, it's beautiful What made you click this image? You commented on my post, and I chose this one to be one of the ones I critique, because it's beautiful.
A very lovely picture. Your use of the dock leads the viewer's eye straight into the gorgeous sunset. I love the contrast of colour of the different depths of the ocean. From the green-yellow of the most shallow, the turquoise of the middle, to the deep blue of where the water is deepest.
The lighting seems almost as if out of a fantasy. The colours of the sky and of the sea are beautiful. The texture of the dock is very well captured, I can almost feel the roughness of the rock causeway leading out to sea.
Some things to improve on. Perhaps waiting a little longer so the cruise ship was a little more to the right (unless of course it was anchored, then there is little that could be done other than adjusting your position). You could also experiment with the shutter speed, and get a misty look to the water.
Still this is overall a very well captured picture.
