Hello everyone,

It's been a very long time since I've done any kind of work in Photoshop or Lightroom. I've been given my creativity back and now I'm trying to get the juices flowing. I want to learn what it takes to get my images submitted for approval. So please give it to me and if possible try to be very specific since I'm not good with generalizations. 

 

Thank you in advance for the advice.

The leaning horizon is an easy fix in Lightroom; however the other flaws noted by Abambo cannot be fixed in post-processing.

In addition to what the others said, use your creativity. Here an example done with Lightroom and Photoshop. Time required: 6 minutes.

Better cropped. Dead space removed. Subject added. Halo removed. Added color, contrast, texture and light.

Remeber, there are millions of sunset photos. Make yours unique.

I'm convinced, you can do similar with the original crop… 😉
