Taken at a vineyard near home. I went there to take sunrise photos but found the best photos were actually taken when the sun had completely risen.

I'm just revisiting this shot, which I like immensely. You really know how to capture the colors at this time of day! I know how patient one must be to get to a place at the right time! The foreground water is superb, and the lines add another contrast and dimension to the shot. I love that the horizon is tilted--I'm sure your camera is actually level--this is a hill, right? The only thing I would change is where the top half of the photo meets the bottom half. You actually have four parts: the sky, the rows of vines, the water in the foreground and the dark area at the bottom. That's tough to compose as they are all horizontal parts.

I really look forward to seeing more images from you!

Im not real fond of the water and reflections in the forground. I do like the rows of vines in the background however. I think that if you foucussed on just that, the composition would have worked a lot better in my opinion.
I also think that if you leveled the horizon it would have a higher visual impact for me as well. It's tilted strangely to the right, and just a few notches to the left would work a lot better.
Focus and clarity seem ok to me. There really isn't a lot of detail in the rows of vines, but I don't really think that it needs a lot of detail. Overall, the effect of just the lines really works nicely without needing to see anything further.
The lighting is really good. Conditions seem to have been on your side for the challenge.
Colors are really good too. The orange and green fit for the challenge nicely.

great shot! Your horizon is tilted a bit, and I think that causes it to suffer a little, but very nice colours.

Great composition, lighting and colors. Focus is just perfect. Well done and good luck.

I really like the pattern of the plants and how the straight rows "demand" attention and then lead the eyes up through the field.

Very nice pattern and color. It's my favorite time of year.

i think this would have been cooler with either just the top part or just the bottom. it's still nice but seems to be trying to do / show too much ..

Really great shot - but might be more interesting with a subject in the foreground.

It looks a bit odd when the horizon is tilting like that. Or am I cross eyed? :)

Forget the reflection, I like the rows of orange in the background. Cropping just below the green strip and keeping what's above it would give this image loads of impact.

Soft colours, bold colours, secondary colours, dramatic contrasts, leading lines, random lines---this one has it all!

This is like a postcard shot, it's very good. The only part I'm not too sure about is the dark area at the front - 9.

This shot would be difficult to crop, but the shadows are just too dark to reveal anything but ambiguity. The symmetry and expanse toward the horizon, however, remain worth telling.

how about cropping out more of the dark shadow in the foreground? 8

I love this photo! The light, the scope. I'd crop the bottom and top a little to emphsize the contrast between the neat rows and the more organic foreground trees

Feels lopsided. Perhaps cropping on the left would help.

Clarity and sharpness are excellent
