Wow, I really like the people in the background for scale. Nice timing, and colors - 8

Like the sky colour and the main element very exciting with good vertical crop. I would like to see the left quarter cropped off and perhaps flipped horizontally after that. Love the people in the mist too.

Strong and massive and exhiting its strong force. The figures add interest to this enchanting capture. Bumping up.

A commonly photographed subject, but your shot is far more interesting than most. Great use of backlighting and silhouettes to make it more interesting. The colors and composition is nice, especially with the people in the background it really dramatizes the scale.

I like the explosive action caught here in the photo. As added interest there are two people in the background observing this phenomenon - and because they are present it adds the human element directly into the photo such that we, the viewer, can easily inject ourselves into the picture as being a part of the group that stands there to watch. My only critique is that the framing of the composition could have better complimented the action present in the scene. The explosion travels up in a horizontal orientation. If you had captured the shot by framing it horizontally instead of vertically it would have complimented the action by 'mimicing' the direction and further calling the attention of the eye to travel up the length of the explosion.

Wow, this is amazing. The coloring and lighting are great. I like the people on the right but maybe not the ones on the left. Could also possibly remove the fencing on the left. Very cool, though!

Powerful. Great blues. Like centering with backlight and the way the sky,clouds converge in bg. Good luck on this geyser of a shot.

This is great. I wish the gyser weren't quite so centered, but still it has wonderful impact and the colors are rich and vivid. The two people help give it some balance. 8

7 - Like the potential. Criticism; in my opinion, this would be much better without the people. Good colors, good view, although perhaps a slightly sharper (ground up) perspective, still capturing the top of the 'geyser', may have made this even better in my opinion. edit:spelling
