Your Photo: Our Critique

Tessa Zufelt has sent us a picture from sunset beach in Oahu, HI. I can see some wonderful backlight to work with but unfortunately this picture is missing on some key elements. I am sure there is a great story to go with this, but it’s not obvious for the viewer.

There is no real focal point. I am sure there is a great story to go with this, but it's not obvious for the viewer. Try to frame your image better, the object on the right side of the frame is distracting.
