Before After
This sunset photo submitted by Brendan Wonson works better as a vertical. The boat and anchor are nice elements added to a normally boring beach sunset. Cropping the photo vertically allows the anchor to take the viewer's eye into the photo. Also, I slightly darkened the shadows and lightened the mid-tones. I brought up the saturation +10 in Photoshop to pop the sunset color without overdoing it. With these small changes, it becomes a more beautiful photo.
