I burned the shadows of the frozen mountain,
I dodged the trees of the island in the lake.
I hope that the image doesn't have too much grain,
I hope that DPC will give me a break.

Hello from the Critique club

An appealing image that nearly meets the challenge.

From your title we can see what your intention was ie., to centre the island to fulfil the challenge brief. However, in the true sense of the challenge brief it only loosely fills that centred requirement, yes its centred vertically but not horizontally but that would have altered the composition detrimentally so you have done the right thing but your choice of subject, appealing as it is, is not really enabling you to meet the challenge fully. In addition the lighting is harsh and flat with a plain uninteresting sky. Good landscape photography is as much about the light as it is about the composition, you really need to go back again and again until you hit it with the right light that transforms your image from a snapshot to an image with that magic wow.

Thanks for your entry Robert.
