Taken on Dec. 27 at Brickhill Bluff backcountry campsite, Cumberland Island, GA. I hiked 10.6 miles to get this shot. Not really, it just happened to be there ;). The total hiking trip was 28 miles done in 3 days. Oh and I didn't use a tripod for this shot, I had to make do and prop it against a tree.

::: Critique Club :::

Hi I am Kari from the critique club. Hopefully this is painless for you.

First Impression - the most important one:
I wish we had skys like that here ... beautiful.

Composition:
I like the composition, the log being on thirds works, the colours are wonderful.

Subject:
Hard to be off subject on best of, and you weren't met and excelled in fact.

Technical (Colour, focus, and light):
Nature provides well.

To grow its vote?:
Top 60 finish ... and out of over 800 ... I would not know how to grow the vote ... I think that this is a fantastic finish.

Summary:
Looks like you should keep happening across these shots as you seem to. Keep hiking it seems to also inspire you.

Any questions on the critique feel free to PM me.

Cheers
Kari

This is a very calming image. I really enjoy the colors, the deep blue is beautiful.

Really lovely colours and a nice interesting silhouette there. I feel it comes a bit close to touching the horizon, which could have been helped by taking the photo from slightly higher, but a fantastic shot all the same.

I really needed something calming today. This is simple and lovely. I'd rather the dark stuff at the bottom left wasn't there so it would be a cleaner image...but that's nit-picking;) Well Done.

Beautiful colors! I love the silhouette of the driftwood - without it the image would not have the imapct it does. Nice angle and composition. The calmness of the water is calming to the soul.

The color and reflection are very nice. Would've preferred a tiny bit more detail to the foreground, just my personal preference. Very nice lines all told. 7/10

Simply captivating. The complementary colors are stunning as the backdrop to that single dried piece of wood. Lovely. 8
