"Another one from Cornwall"

Not sure about this one.....I wanted to catch the light in the water flowing down he beach, and also the rock on the right hand side, but could only get an angle to get this with the rock right over to the right......what do you think?

I like. Even with the rock over to the right, the image is balanced by the channel of open water running to the left in the foreground, so it works for me.

Thanks guys, I liked it, but it seemed to be wrong from a photographic 'composition rules 'point of view , however, rules are to be broken eh?

In this case, yes, although you didn't really break any compositional rules that I can see. The composition still remains well balanced. But breaking a rule has to make sense, otherwise what's the point? I guess one has a harder job to demonstrate why a rule needs to be broken. Many pictures are taken following all the rules, and many of those pictures are just blahh... Not much to criticize those pictures on, other than they are not exciting.

If you break a rule and the picture ends up as one of those otherwise blahh pictures one lays oneself open to serious criticism, because that's what people may fixate on - the broken rule. If the picture is good in other ways people are often willing to overlook the "broken rule" since the picture has other redeeming qualities.

So let's see more of these

Mike:

I understand your goal with this image: capturing the sunlight reflected off the water flowing down the beach.

Would you consider making this a panorama, by cropping about half the foreground off, placing the horizon in the middle of the frame? (Yes, breaking another rule!)

A bit more contrast may bring out the sun's reflection in the water.

To my eye, the dark, massive islands of sand draw my eye from the much more appealing sunlit horizon and the more vivid reflection of the sun in the water immediately below it. In the panorama format, my eye sweeps left and right, never leaving the major points of interest.

If you have another session at this site, consider shooting from a lower angle, which will compress the massive foreground, while still retaining the desired reflections.

Very nice image, with lots of potential.

Thanks for posting it.
