Remained Hidden

I've waited for this moment for quite sometime & it's worth waiting. This time around i wanted to capture sunset where the sun is hidden, somehow, beyond my expectation, i captured one composition even better off than what i imagined initially.

The day at the beach, as usual, accompanied by my friend puppetpicasso, who also admired to this wonderful scenery. He was too amazed by it without realizing that, he moved closer towards the scenery and left me behind, gawking alone and still in astonishment. Whilst setting up my tripod & unpacking my gears, i began to compose several ideas. Slowly, I moved from one spot to another, just to entice myself and pick up the good mood. The idea was for myself to be agiled with the compositon in mind.

Well, I managed to capture this, portraying blue sky layered with black & white clouds up above . The sun was overshadowed for several mintues so I took few shots with different settings suits to my liking.

I'd be most welcome & happy, if you would kindly leave a comment at the comment column instead at the shout-out box. Thank you once again. Enjoy viewing.

Life.. because I can see a life on the left side.. must be Puppet shooting..

A little too dark for me man. although I do say that the sky was beautiful that day and the way the sun rays trying to penetrate the horizon is stunning.

Tarangkan sikit bro.. siiiiikit saja.. takutkah ada nampak ghost? Hehehe!!

I'm sorry if you find me harsh but I won't lie and will give you my honest and sincere comment.
Credit for the effort but not for the shot as this is a poor 'so what?' image, very dark and lack interest.
If your main aim was on the sun rays, then try to omit the foreground which in this case really didn't do justice to the fantastic cloud formation.
By applying a rule of third, this would've been a great shot if more focus was given to the sky where it should dominate 2/3 of the top frame while the bottom 1/3 be filled up by the sea.
If you don't have any filter to control the contrast between the sky and the foreground, then shoot twice at two different setting i.e. one each for the sky and the sea, and post process it later (I, on the other hand, use filter and never do post processing).
And the silhouette of your friend on the left is an annoyance more than anything else!
From your other images, I can say that you have good photographic eyes. Critiques should motivate you. Keep practising.
I have some decent shots of sunsets if you'd like to see. You can view them by visiting my web at www.shahminan-ibrahim.com and feel free to leave comment or critiques.
