Photographer's Note

After visiting my family in the south of the country, we went to the Baltic Sea coast in the north of Poland. My British neighbour was quite surprised to hear that Poland has access to the sea. On the way from the south to the north we made a couple of hours break in Torun, which I showed in my previous photos. The main destination was a little village at the Baltic Sea coast called Rowy. The sunset photo was taken from a promenade along the lovely sandy beach. I was quite busy there so actually I managed to watch just one sunset. Polish coast is mainly facing north but it is slightly tilted to the west so from most places you can see the sun disappearing in the sea.

I have to admit I always struggle with the sunset photos. I think I know how to take the blue hour photos, but the sunsets are a mystery to me. I took my tripod there. The wind was so strong though that the tripod was almost taking off so maybe this was my problem. I used low ISO setting. I tried to focus on the sun hiding behind the clouds. I took about 40 photos. They are all rubbish. The sea was not sharp. The title of this photo is not me bragging about the photo but rather a serious question: How do you take a sunset photo? What do you focus on? On the foreground, sea or clouds? What sort of setting do you use? I would appreciate any advice.
