Hello helge, I have a feeling this one is difficult to photograph, even if the subject is interesting... I think you solve the problems pretty well here! Lots of details in the rock, we can also see how the waves are weashing the socket. My only minor objection is... maybe crop a tad tighter, in particular on the top? Anyway - nice job! Regards, Pablo

Nice shot. I agree with Nina about the overexposed upper-left corner. You may try the simple way (crop it a bit lower) or the difficult way (create a gradient mask (gray or blue to match the sky color) in PShop and blend it with the image. Try out several blending methods. I'm not an expert in masking modes.... The color of the frame is nice, but it distracts from the image. I generally use more "neutral" frames in black, white (not 100% white but almost) or neutral gray or grayish-blue. Good work and a splendid subject.

This is a lovely photo and I appreciate the composition very much. That you've captured such a clear image in what appears to be the onset of the evening, including the ripples in the water in the foreground and the bridge structure in the distance is fine. My father's family is from Trondheim in the north while my mother's family is from Stavanger in the south. I've never visited Norway but it is always a delight to see photographs from my ancestral home. Thank you.
