Before After
Capturing the sunset with water and silhouetted palm trees was a great idea submitted by Mike Lucas. I think this is a nice start but it is lacking a little punch. I like the water feature in the foreground, but to bring more emphasis to it and to the sky, I would crop some off the top, the left side to the glass and some off the bottom. If you have the time, try to catch a more interesting sky. I might also clone out the stray branch on the right top part of the picture.
