    First of all, excellent color. My only crit is that the mountains (the main focus point) split the picture in half almost perfectly. This is generally not the most exciting composition. If you crop some of the sky out, it will really help the water lead the eye to the mountains and keep it from wandering far above the focal point. The only problem this poses is that you loose the nice gradation in the night sky, but you can always paint it back in a bit like so:

    critique please!

    Hope this helps!

    it is a really nice pic! love the colours and the smoothness. Frontline is right about the cropping, but the way they cropped it, it seems off. i think maybe if its cropped a little higher (i.e. more sky in the pic) then it might work better.

    post some more!

    This picture reminds me: We should go on a fishing trip barret. It has been way too long since we did that.

    While normally I would agree with frontline about cropping, I think on this pictuer it looks good, because the symmetry adds to the composition because it is reflected in the water which has a nice effect, other wise the water is reflecting and feels cut. I like it the way it is.

    I like it. Try rotating it a little bit to get it totally horizontal and that will make it calmer. Also I would crop it a bit from the bottom.

    Im not sure if C+C is neccessary here ... at a certain high quality it just comes down to personal taste.
    I think U should certainly be able to sell the photo if U wanted.

    Lovely colours & nice & peaceful.

    My critique to this very good photo (critique means it is not PERFECT in my eyes(which can just be down to matter of taste & not faults in the piece of art)... Anybody looking at this will say .. ohhh beautiful ... so it neednt be perfect to be worth something or to be a great piece of art IMO)

    But Id say the photo falls between between a nice wide view & being a standard photo size ... all these strong horizontal bits make me wanting it too be vast in its width ... Id maybe take out the cloud .. & the ripples on the left .. & cut it at the right at the same length as on the left to achieve perfect simetry .

    Just IMO

    I dont agree about making it symmetrical, I think it would make it less interesting. I like the picture because its really clean. Would be nice to see it in greater resolution.

    Morbid : "I dont agree about making it symmetrical, I think it would make it less interesting."

    -> Sorry I dont agree with you on that point .

    I think the point of this photo is not to be interesting looking but to look very harmoneous & I think that symetry in this case would add to the "harmony" .

    Just IMO
