Greetings from the Critique Club

What are the odds! 300+ images in the queue, and in a couple of days, you get me again as a critiquer! I'm the lucky one, 'cause this is beautiful. (I'm trying to reconcile the location with my recollections of Reykjavik, but, darn, I can't. It's not that big pond in the middle of town, is it?)

Okay, enough of that. Down to business. Beautiful. Meets the Challenge perfectly, of course. The leading lines of the fence posts take the viewer directly to the nicely delineated houses right back to the lovely expanse of water which your long exposure interpreted perfectly. Keeping the viewer in the picture for another romp through.

I have just one minor point. Since this was an advanced editing Challenge, if it was mine, I'd probably given that last house on the right a little burn or the tiniest neutral paint. Just dull it down a tiny bit. As it is now, that house is the brightest point in the whole picture and is a bit of a sticking post. The viewer does tend to go to the brightest area of the picture first.

Again, it was a pleasure to enjoy this image. Keep 'em coming!
