Love the moving clouds The water looks magical - kionda dizzying - nice example of the power of photography -- FAVin' this one. I actually like the fact that the reflection of the sky is the foreground- it defies traditional composition!!!!

very peaceful looking. I like this in black and white. If I could have a wish for this it would be that the reflection of the clouds was crisper or a shot with more of the sky and croped before the first bright spot in the water. The clouds are incredible. Very nice tones.

Wow. Nice photograph. There is nothing terribly unique here conceptually. But where is there something new conceptually. For what it presents, it is extremely compelling and is a shot I would love to say I had taken. Right time, right place, right technique as far as my amature eye can discern. Outstanding shot.

Strong composition (the 2 peaks spaced evenly in the frame, the space dedicated to the water reflections). Good choice of black & white too.
