Story behind the photo: This was taken while camping at Montana de Oro State Park on the California coast. About an hour before sunset it was really overcast, and did not look like there would be a good sunset, so I decided to stay at the campsite. My girlfriend told me to go get some photos anyways, so I headed out and to my pleasant surprise enough clouds had dissipated to capture the sun and some magnificent colors.

I don't know how much experience you have with landscapes, but I wonder why you centered everything--rocks in the middle & the two sides with the rocks jutting out. At least you had the good sense to have the sunset a bit above the horizon line (but it is still in the center of the photo).

Thanks for the feedback. I don't have any formal education in photography, but I have been doing it for fun since high school. I took a centered picture because it look best to me, given the vantage points available at that time on the beach.
