Somehow you are right, concerning the composition.On the other hand, there would be less backpack stuff (there was really a big pile of it) and the feeling hanging out in the hot sun not so strong. The cropping would put the horizont almost in the middle, quite boring for me.Anyway, thanks for your dedicated comment!
jerusalem shutter: really nice photo! proves that its not always in the equipment!
Thank You!Somehow it is the equipment, because the D3100 is a great camera and more than an entry level. Especially with RAW and ADL on.
nayansoni: Great click !! Was polarizer used in this ?
Thank you for your appreciation!No polarizer used, straight out of cam - maybe with some contrast treating.Sometimes the mediterrean sea is like this, especially with strong winds.
