Hey I'm part of the FeedbackFrenzy Contest and so I'm here to critique your picture (I don't know why I choose the second picture of you, too, they got someting I really like ^^)

So I'll start with the first impression. When I saw this picture my first thought was "wonderful", because I really love sunset pictures and the bird makes it more interesting in my opinion.

And now I'll say something to the things you want to hear. So the quality: Theres nothing to say bad about it in this picture. Its sharp and you can see every wave and the sun behind the clouds.

So go on with the creativity. I don't know if you edit it, but when you did it good, because I looks really natural.
I guess this picture wasn't planed by you, so I can't say to much to the creativity. But even if it was luck you did a good job because its perfect in his frames and the focus on the right side.

And now going in with the technique. Theres something I can critique because its sadly that the hoizont is aslope. I know you can't do it in this moment perfect but maybe by editing later.
This is the only thing I would improve.

In the end its a great shot with stunning colors and a lot of details

Hello, I'm here to leave you a #FeedbackFrenzy critique! :la:
I really love the contrast between the sky and the water here - there's a good strong yellow around the sun that blends wonderfully into the orange, leaving a beautiful trail of gold down the centre of the blue, which has wonderful detail in the waves, it looks great XD Meanwhile the bird gives a fantastically clean and well-captured silhouette, nicely in focus and not blurred :)
It is a little bit of a shame that the tip of its wing is cut off at the edge of the photo though - shooting this scene as landscape instead of portrait, with the sun and the bird either in the centre, or in the left third, would have resulted in more space on the right, which I think this photo definitely needs. The horizon also isn't quite straight, which can be a very distracting element in an otherwise great photo.
Those are the only couple of points that I personally would have done a little differently though :) In general I really like this photo, I love sunsets and you certainly caught this one at a brilliant moment with the bird there :D

If it wasn't for the crooked horizon and the fact it was shot in portrait style, it would be peeerrrfect! Beautiful colours
