First thing that jumps out at me is that there is a person in the shot.

The second thing is: The person is too far away.

I wish I could make out more of the person. I mean if I look really close I can see it's some girl, but she's sorta lost in the shot too much IMHO.

Beautiful sunset and mood. There is nothing wrong with the image. However, you can do a couple of variations:

1. Move in to meet your subject in the water. By closing in to take an intimate shot, I could imagine the rim lighting effect on her hair from the golden sunset.

2. Have your subject back on the sand where your camera is positioned. This gives the impression that she is about to be drawn into the water by the beauty of the sunset. This would become the first shot in a series.

Human figures are often used to give "scale" to landscapes. This one was a tad dark for me to make out right away but does meet the need. Moving the person too close would diminish the "vastness" of the ocean since the sunset and the ocean are the subject and the person is an element.
Getting closer to the person will create a completely different photo, different but not necessarily better or worse.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

First impression is " Wow" but moving the person in a little closer would not affect the mood of the shot. Beautiful sunset

Since the shot is already done, crop most of the right side of the image off. There is nothing there adding to the story of the image. I would crop out a lot of the bottom also to keep the horizon out of the center of the image. This would help put the person on the lower right power point in the rule of thirds.

First of all the horizon isnt in the middle of the photo as suggested the girl is nicely placed in the image giving that wonderful scale and the mood/lighting of the landscape is wonderful, its just the girl being so dark in there, I would suggest try a little dodging in photoshop on the girl/boy, this way the great landscape is left alone as it should be and if you can reveal the girl a little more voila.
If you dont know how to dodge a photo then its easy to learn there are many tutorials on photoshopping an image, if you wish send me a full resolution photo to [email protected] and I will happily give it a try, a lot will depend on the quality of the image.

The horizon may not be in the exact center mathematically, but it is too centered for my taste and I feel it gives the image a static feeling. There is no right or wrong, just opinion. I feel if it was cropped as I said earlier, it would be more dynamic. I agree with trying to work on the person.

:judge: I like the balance you have between the overpowering sun and the details on the girl. Yes it could be tweaked as Photobod suggest but this exposure is right on a fine line that had to be intentional. I say well done on that. The composition offered a lot of different opportunities as has been pointed out. I like the one you chose just fine.

I like the composition. The model subject is near the third, but if the image was cropped on the right, she would be right on the mark. The only thing i might have done differently, is compose for the horizon to be more in the bottom third of the image.

Beautiful shot though.
