I usually don't shoot landscapes but here goes anyway.

Nice shot Rick,...wish there was some scenery like that a little closer to me.
Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful sky.
I understand why you placed the horizon in the center - to show the near perfect reflection - but that DOES make for a more static image. Still, beautiful, lush sky.
Thanks for sharing.

I may get into trouble for this(rule 10), but try cropping off the bottom dark water. See if that feels better to you.

I cropped the bottom off as suggested but I think it makes it look more like a panorama.

Wow! This is an incredible photo (IMHO). I'll bet most days there is little beauty in this area but you caught it on the right day. I think what captures my imagination is the point in the right hand side where the sun is shining.

Thanks for sharing!

I like it as a panorama! Feels more peaceful.

Hello Rick.

Love your shot. And I love the cropped one even better than the original.

I can't tell if it is just the way that the scene sits, or my brain, but it looks like there is a slight tilt of the horizon so that the left horizon is a little lower than the right one (although you can not clearly see the horizon itself). The makes me want to tilt the picture just a little bit to straighten out the horizon.

But I love the surreal look that you got with this shot.

PTL,
Lee
