When you are taking a picture that has action, it helps to get down to the subject so you are closer to the level of the action. I did this with the birds so that the shot shows them closer to their level instead of shooting it down on them.
I really like to take silhouettes. They add interest and perspective to the photograph. They give it warmth and action too.
An important rule to remember-is the “rule of thirds”. Following that rule has the horizon line in either the upper third or lower third of the picture-never in the center.
And finally, I really liked the way the sun gave the gulf a golden path to the beach.
Which of these photos do you like the best?? Let me know and thanks.
