Great light. Personally I'd prefer less of the foreground rock. The top third has the great light and that is where the interest is for me.

Just my opinion, as the shot is good as it is

as in your last picture, I like the subtle colours. They simply see to work together and make a nice change from vast amounts of Velvia saturation one sees so often.

The foreground rock is however a little much, and could do with being about a stop lighter. A ND grad over sky and sea might have helped in this case. However, it can proably be resolved in Photoshop, if you are so inclined.

I owuld cetainly crop out some of the foreground. It otherwise overpowers the rest of the picture. I'm not going to suggest a square crop again, because then Charles will come after me with a large tripod... :)

A panoramic crop (1:3 or so), potentially removing all of the foreground rock could be quite nice as well, methinks.

Real Photographers use METAL cameras.....

Gorgeous light. I don't mind the foreground too much; but it could have used some more light to "blend it in" some.. (Or maybe lift it some with "Shadow/Highlights" in photosshop?)
But I hope you set the tripod slightly further up and shot a bit more of that background, it looks fantastic !

I'm curious to know what brand of mobile phones are available in sweden, I'd be interested in one if they can do images even remotely like this one... :D
