    I took this in between sessions photographing red squirrels on Anglesey.

    Does this composition work? I've lots more top and bottom and a bit more to the left.

    This is a fabulous location and i'm surprised it doesn't get more attention from the big name landscape photographers.

    I like it, the church might get a bit lost if there's any more space round it. Is it a pano or one frame? Definitely on my list to visit at some point soon

    Thanks, it's a crop. I could make the church more or less dead centre but I generally don't favour central subjects.

    It's a lovely spot but there is a car race track on the headland nearby. It might not be as peaceful as it looks when you do visit.........

    Go with the wide aspect. You've got that lovely tonal range and subtle graduation you only really see on clear cloudless days.

    I like clear blue skies and their reflection but in moderation otherwise the frame feels a bit smooth.

    What I'd say is your horizon is slightly higher than half way. I'd crop a smidge more keeping the aspect the same but taking off a little of the right.

    Or extend the crop slightly keeping the same aspect putting a tad more on the top

    To be honest I was a bit disappointed that the sky was so relentlessly clear and the sunset was really, actually, a bit dull. But it was almost completely still so I banged on the big stopper and tried some long exposures.

    I'll have a look at the exact proportions tomorrow.

    I can understand why you would be disappointed but don't be.

    The clear blue sky deserves to be celebrated too.

    You know what it's like. You hope for perfection and it very rarely happens......

    So keep going until you get it.

    Remember you told me in @Steelo thread re the old man of storr when I said it was the best landscape ever of skye that I would get one(s) like that.

    https://www.talkphotography.co.uk/threads/old-man-of-storr-sunrise.650771/

    Six months later I managed to get the image(s) I dreamed of and was so enthusiastic about in his thread.

    I'll give you your own advice, keep at it, you'll get it and you'll be overjoyed when your vision becomes a reality.

    Yes, I think I remember that. I've been in this game long enough to agree with you.

    I got some far better photographs of the red squirrels than I ever dared hope for, so I can live with the (slight) disappointment over the conditions at "The church in the sea". Whatever I got there was a bonus.

    Thanks for taking the time and trouble to post.
