But you're in the UK! Dulux :-)...
I am actually in the USA, though I occasionally get published in UK magazines.
I really do not get your angle in this debate. You do not seem to find this image particularly interesting or well done, and it is fine. There are several other participants in this thread, myself included, who find it quite good as-is. There is no right or wrong here, just like it or not, or feel it or not.
My point about satisfiers vs. maximizers is meant from the author's standpoint. It can be just as well applied to your scenario, to a viewer or buyer. If I would be the buyer, I would buy it without waiting to go first through gazillion beach sunset photos that I am sure exist today in the universe. Why? Because I am happy with what I see, enough so to stop the search. A maximizer would continue the search, first through the same gallery for a better one, then through other galleries in town, then online. I can guarantee you that with the subject such as beach sunsets he would never stop searching, as there would always be that nagging feeling that, after seeing a gazillion examples, there must be a gazillion +1 somewhere out there that just might be the perfect one.
As for Galen's musings, I actually agree with that. However, I used that example to mean if they were after a sunset image, not dusk image, then they would be late. I personally observed the same behavior as Galen did, and you can find my thoughts here
(in the image description).
