This is near my home town of Adelaide, South Australia. They call us the driest state on the driest continent on earth. Our state is also affectionately known as the 'gateway to the outback'. This shot is near Pt Wakefield in the SA mid-north.

I would like to have seen the camera panned to the right just a bit so that the sweep of the shore was not cropped out.

The colours seem to be rather saturated as if tweaked using a sledgehammer in Photoshop; be subtle - photoshop can be a blunt instrument.

The horizon is crooked - I know you guys have everything upside down there, but it really is a critical requirement.

And I cannot tell whether the image is unsharp because it was not focused correctly or whether the JPG compression has messed it up. Try recompressing the image...

Regards

Paul

Paul,

It's a beautiful part of the world for sure and that's not a bad shot.
Looks like great light.

But I agree with the above - I think horizons are easy to get right and should be straight.

Try to get them right when you're shooting and if they're still a bit out fix them in Photoshop or your raw converter.
