Great landscape. The play between the sky and water is very interesting. Color saturation is great, DOF and focus is good throughout. It may just be me, but the horizon looks a little tilted CCW? Nice shot nonetheless.... 7

Great color, like then lone sentinel saguaro cactus. Good luck on this landscape study.

Beautiful scene. However, it is said that you are not supposed to have a horizon split an image. It is better for the horizon be in the top or bottom 1/3.

Excellent picture. Reminds me of home. Love the lone saguaro there and the blue hues in the water and sky. Love it! .....Has to be AZ?

The crop cuts the image in half,less sky would have been better,IMO...
