This photo submitted by Arjun Sitaram, is a little different than the many sunset photos we see daily. It was a good choice to include the pier and beach. Most of the sunsets are shot with just sky and water. Using a filter, the photographer was able to capture more color in the sky without having to fake it and over-saturate what the camera captured. The contrast could use a little help by slightly lighting the mid-tones and darkening the shadows. These small changes will make the photo pop more.
