The rewards of success; a beautiful overlook after biking up a long and and winding road.

::: Critique Club :::

Hi, my name is Kari and from the critique club.

First Impression - the most important one:
oh dear .. I really do dislike when the horizon is crooked ... it takes a minor rotation to correct and make an ok shot a good one.

To my understanding I think that this would have worked well if you had the horizon on the horizontal thirds line and then the sky .. not too sure .. but may help a little.

Doe it meet the challenge, if you had a cyclist in the shot enjoying the view yes. If you don't the picture does not stand on its own without the title.

Technical (Colour and light):
Colours are good and lighting is great. The border is perhaps a little heavy.

To grow its vote?:
Include a cyclist .. and think about how the picture really represents what you want it to.

Godo work and a lovely picture.

If you've got any questions about this critique, please feel free to contact me via
the PM system.

Nice shot. Next time make sure your horizon is straight. Also, the frame is a bit heavy for such a beautiful view.

Great focus, it's not spesific, but it seems like you filtered the greens and blues.

The horizon is tilted.

The photo is nice...not sure how it correlates to the title or the category.

beautiful picture, but the big black border is a real shame. I mean, there is so much light going on in the foto, why disturb it with such a border?

Simply beautiful! Wonderful coloring and composition. Great shot!

YOur title, and the image are confusing. Sorry, but, I am not convinced.

This however is an excellent image.

Nice comp, maybe just a bit tighter crop, great color, great light, great texture, nice movement
