I love the way the red tones of sunset bring out the trunk of the tree. That's my favorite part of the picture and I like that the trunk and the moon take opposing sides around the center of the photo. I also like how green the dark area is, since it contrasts so well with the red. Nice muted tone for the sky. A very pleasant photo to look at. Nothing striking about it, but I could imagine using this and your intercoastal photo to help me meditate... :)

My first reaction is... too brown for a landscape. I know it has a nice glow to it, but it's not quite "golden". I don't mind dirty, muddy tones, but there's no interesting composition here to redeem them. It might be more interesting if the water weren't exactly the same as the sky.

What I like about it is that it's a peaceful, sleepy picture.

Comment by glad2badad:
If you would have waited about 3 minutes longer you'd have a nice sunset glow and lighting. With the use of HDR available you could have even brought back some foreground if desired (after waiting 3 minutes for the sun to set the foreground would be darker yet). As is, the sun is a bit too blown out for me. I'm also not seeing a strong subject theme. The river forms a nice leading line, but it takes you to the center of the frame. The brush and distant shoreline to the left aren't adding as much to this composition as the nice golden glow on the water to the right does. I'd emphasize the right side more via repositioning yourself at the time of image capture or in cropping while post-processing. Try to get the horizon more off-center as well.

All JMO of course. :D Good luck in the challenge.

Comment by posthumous:
David Bowie eyes... you have exaggerated the effect by putting so much emphasis on the eye of sky. the earth-eye is rotated half out of view. The result is disorienting in a Cubist-painting sort of way. I see two dogfaces, one for each eye, that don't quite match up. I like that effect.

But maybe that big hot spot on the top of his head is too much? It draws a lot of attention to itself. I realize that some of the detail is probably forever lost, but you can still make it less bright (maybe burn it), and brighten up the rest of the photo.

But even just as it is, I find this image compelling. A great abstract jumble of black and white shapes surrounding this one big glowing eye.

This is a very pretty scene... the composition is nice; my eye is led from the lefthand frame into the picture and out the back.

Technicals have some problems, though; at least in post... the sun is so bright, and the plants so dark, that it's hard to really see the whole scene without effort. I'd have tried (and I sure no expert) a little fill flash on the forground plants, and curves to brighten the sky and water and bring out the sunset colors that are one of the major assets of this image.

what an apparatus! works as a metaphor for civilisation for me. did you think about pushing the contrast a drop and fading a high pass filter

Comment by coolblue:
IMO the B/W is a little too dark with the top of the reeds bouncing the light it would be magic.Just a though.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the B&W for this picture.
