Seascapes at sunset - Portugal
3

Hello,

Here are two photos i took today not very far from where i live.

The first one was taken 20 mins after sunset and the second right after the run went down. Unfortunately the sky was really clear, without clouds to give the sky some more fill and texture.

For my experience on landscape photography i feel happy with the results i got today, i'm really new to this and there's always room to learn more and more.

Feel free to give some opinions.

Thanks!!

As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing to improve on your 1st image.  The 2nd image is also very good, but I personally think it would be even better if you cropped down far enough to eliminate the sky and the horizon.

They're very nice, especially the first one.  If it were me Od cut back a little on the magenta. But that's just personal preference

Thank you very much!
It's so nice for a beginner like me to receive such a good feedback. I followed your suggestion, the second doest look nicer like that.
Thanks

Looks like a great location to have nearby for sunsets!

My main advise would be to get your tripod lower and shoot lower to emphasize the foreground rocks more.  Look for pool like areas where the water on the ground is reflecting the light in the sky while you are down low.
