Beautiful image - I like the layers, even though the colour on the top doesn't seem very natural for a sky, but we never know what nature can produce...

The sky in Edvard Munch style! I like it!

I love this image. For me however, I think the overall impact would be a little better with a crop at the shoreline. The beautiful colors and tones seem to conflict a bit with the 'realness' of the water. More a personal preference I think. Well done!

This reminds me a lot of a DrAchoo shot. The color, clarity, composition and lighting are all very good.
