great color, just horizon shift to level would help

Beautiful picture, but the horizon is a bit off kilter and the vines hanging from the top look a bit oversharpened.

Nice colors and the reflections in the water. However, the framing (natural one) and the stuff hanging from the top is distracting and in general subtracts from the image rather than enhances it. Still a top-30 image in my opinion.

great image yet the top left seems to have a white edge around all teh black - this distracts me and shouts out that you have gone to far with some modyfying. Nice composition and good colour otherwise.

Tilted, but nice otherwise.

Yes, this is a superb image in each and every way.

Gorgeous sunset, love the framing, the tilt makes it interesting, but would have prefered it level. 8

Nothing short of majestic. I would have use less sharpenning. The horizon tilt appears to work with the blazing sun as a reward. Certainly an impressive study. Bumping up.

Interesting scene. The horizon looks a bit tilted and it seems a bit over sharpened.

I actually find the hanging stuff distracting, but wow what a shot.

A little tilted, otherwise nice.

i wo0uld have given this a 10 if not for the slanted horizon. very very nice!

Pretty!

Whoa! Composition hit me right in the face! If it weren't or the flareing (caused by post processing?) around the vegetation and rocks up top I would have scored this 10.

Watch out for the halos... the tiny branches especially show that the image has been oversharpened, but you can also see the halo around the island in the center. Love the texture of the sky. The water probably shouldn't be sharpened at all. Then tilt your horizon back to where the water is level.... everyone knows water will run down hill so images of water especially need to be straight.

The colours here are beautiful, and the framing used does draw ones eye into the image. I am one of those people who prefer their horizons to be horizontal, so I would like to see some rotation here and maybe a little less sharpening as those tell tale halos can be distracting.

That all being said this still captures my eye

beautiful work..the sky's tones and saturation levels are perfect..

Incredible capture. I love the overhanging foreground and the trees in the background, the colors are incredible, 10

Nice picture and sunset. Two slight criticisms: 1) need to work the horizontal, unless you were trying to give the illusion that you are on a boat (in which case, don't do that), and 2) just a little too over sharpened - very noticable by the hanging plant. Straighten it out and soften it up and you'll have an outstanding shot (IMO).

Should have masked the USM on the hanging plant a bit. Nice picture though. 7

I'm sure the horizon police have commented on this. Shame because it has so much potential
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2005 12:23:57 AM
Oversharpened! The vine in the front looks it! Otherwise, really sweet photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

5 - Very nice silhouettes, colors, scene - good potential, but, Criticism; crooked. Perhaps (depending what you had to work with) the inclusion of the top of what appears to be the cave(?) for a pseudo frame, would have made this even better as well, in my opinion.

Pretty shy, but the horizon distracts me ..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2005 11:05:08 PM
with a 'seascape' it is imperative to get your horizon level....otherwise a very pleasing image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2005 10:57:23 PM
HELPPPPP, I feel like I'm falling off the earth! Pretty colored sky, but you REALLY need to straighten this out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2005 10:12:07 PM
Beautiful scene, but it is over-sharpened. Notice the white outlines around the dark objects.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2005 10:09:43 PM
It is a shame you did not straighten the horizon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2005 07:39:12 PM
Appears to have to much Neat Image or at least sharpening. Tilted horizon. Could have been a top scorer.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2005 05:50:15 PM
This is a really good picture, I find your sharpening a bit harsh though. Those edges at the top look like they have a halo. Horizon is a bit tilted as well. Good pic overall though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2005 05:49:41 PM
It seems like the sharpening has been taken to an extreme. Other than that nice photograph
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2005 01:51:29 PM
What a great perspective! And that beautiful dramatic sky is to die for in this shot!!!! Beautiful photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Finally a shot with a tilted horizon that works! Great job! Beautiful shot!

Looks oversharpened to me...

Wow, one of those super special photo that make me quiver. I love this delicate paradise sunset and I know it will rate highly as it deserves a ribbon

Layer mask for curves adjustment appears to be one pixel off causing halo effect - other than that: WOW!! Very nice photo.

Beautiful picture, but tilted .. ice
