Inspired by photography, and how it often makes me feel optimistic in dark times.

Oh my goodness, now this is what I'm talking about!
It's now brighter, and much more focused. The blue water and sky is beautiful!
I do wish that you could have gone closer to the man, or zoomed in. Without the title telling us what the man is doing, we might not have ever known.
But keep this, I like it. :aww:

This really has the potential to be a really great image!
Though I do suggest some things...

1. Make sure that the picture is in focus. It looks a bit blurry here, so I would recommend a tripod for no movement. If you do not have a tripod, just make sure that the camera/phone has three points of your body touching it. For example, your two hands and your eye.

2. Like the deviant below, make sure that your photo has a focal point. It seems too vague and the viewer does not know what to look at.

3. Try using the Rule of Thirds when taking photos like this. Instead of placing the subject directly in the middle of the photo, put it slightly to the side so it becomes more interesting.

4. I think you edited this photo (not sure!). If you did, I'm guessing you used the effect "vignette" . I do not recommend editing. If you do edit, boost the colors slightly.

Hope this helped! :huggle:
