Excellent David.

The shot of the temple with the reflection in the water is stunning--so sharp and crisp and the colors are exquisite. Great job!

Thanks, that one is my favorite.

It was also the hardest one to take. I was up on the side and it's only about 2 feet wide. Barely enough to put my tripod on it (with the tripod legs close together). I wondered several times if the whole thing was going to tip over!

Wow, those are all so beautiful.
Just stunning!

#2 reflections is really great. on #3, the branches in front aren't helping much, i think you kept those for a framing effect, but they are distracting and don't help the image in any way

Beautiful. 1 and 6 are my favorites.

The truth is, I really wanted even more of the christmas tree and its lights. But had I not cropped it where I did, there would have been a huge glaring light shining directly at me that would have been extremely distracting. But, still, I loved that tree (it looked so much better in person!) and had to take the shot.

Thanks for the feedback.

I was talking not about the lighted tree, that looks good, but the branches of another tree which are on the top portion of the image

Yes, I had understood what you meant. I just read my reply and realized I didn't "connect the dots" for you in my explanation.

The branches from the other (unlit) tree were unavoidable due to the angle that I needed in order to get the lighted tree, which is what I really wanted. As explained above, I couldn't go any lower (on the lighted tree) without including the bright light that was shining directly at me. So I ended with a higher angle that ended up including the unlit tree's branches. Make more sense this time?
