Original shot taken by my boyfriend in 2010, in Ocean Cove, a bit northwest of Santa Rosa, Northern California. The photomanipulator in me was dying to try to bring some of the lost detail out of the shadowy rocks, but I resisted for the most part for the sake of maintaining the silhouetting effect of the sunset.

Great sunset scene, I love the still big sun and the silhouettes of the rocks.

I don't know, but to me the sun area seems way to bright and distracts from the rest of the beauty. Good angle though.

An interesting looking scene and nice composition of the shot. I like the silhouettes and capture of the water on the shoreline. The bright area of the sun could be reduced in size.

Think about the photo before and after, never during. The secret is to take your time. You mustn't go too fast. The subject must forget about you. Then, however, you must be very quick. Henri Cartier-Bresson

Thanks for the feedback all. The sun has actually been reduced a little already. I didn't want to over-process this one, especially because the sheer size of the sun is what (I think) lends this photo its personality. I already multiplied back in as much of the highlight detail as I could, although an artificial shrinking of the sun could be done...
