Sunset in Vestmannaeyjar

Rajan,

It must have taken a lot of discipline to not show a huge expanse of sky. You did the right thing and that harsh but correct decision cut off a lot of sentimentality and now makes this picture very precise in the motif of the descending sun. Given that I'd ponder on the lower 2/3 of the clouds that are present and I wonder whether they might have some reflection back from the water?

Good job!

Asher,

You guessed right. There was quite a bit going on in the sky that is not shown and it would have been a distraction. The special thing about this composition was the 'twin' suns and the twin skerries. Had it not been for this, it would have been yet another clichéd sunset shot we suffer every other day.
