ocracoke sunset couple

Anyone that knows me will tell you that I'm not very romantic, but I'll take the opportunity for a romantic composition when given it. The sky was doing weird, moody things on Ocracoke Island one evening, and Ocracoke is known for clean deserted beaches. The only other people on the beach didn't know they were posing for me.

I shot this with the intention of cropping out large sections of sand and sky, turning this into a panoramic using the waterline and the sunlight together. The horizon was originally placed in the center to reduce chance of wide-angle curvature.
