Beautiful view and colors. Think it could use some more contrast. Looks probably a lot better in full size, but it has that typical HDR look here. So much red "noise" (foreground and background)

Youch! Beautiful scene and nice comp, but the processing makes elements an eye strain to even look at. Maybe it is just me but I can't help but think I'm not the first to have this reaction. Sorry!

I love the use of colors in this photo. The reflection on the water shows some texture of the current.

Nice HDR image here. Great colors. Composition is too tight, IMO. Wide angle would have helped here. Still one of my top score. Good Luck.

Good job! Like it a lot. The pastel colors and sharpness plus sunset (or rise) makes it one of the better in the challenge. 8

I like the colors in the sky.

I assume HDR. A bit too harsh on the tone mapping for my taste. Would be interesting if you could bring the boat back and just push the background. The coloured fringing around the boat is not very attractive

I like the scene, but I don't care for the very strong saturation.

You've got some strange things going on in the sand--appears like a lot of digital noise, and over saturated. I like the bridge, trees, and sunset a lot, but I think the boat and the shore weaken it significantly.

Nice colors, maybe the crop is a bit tight, but very nice.

Something about the processing makes this one hard for me to look at this otherwise very beautiful image. Too much sharpening maybe?

I am on the fence with your shot...I really like it, but the colors are almost to much...love the boat with the bridge
