|==Greetings from the Critique Club==
I really like this composition. My eye goes immediately to the subject, and the lines make me look around. I like the fact that the red contrasts so completely with the other colors.
Trees always frustrate me when it comes to focus. They never look to really be in focus, especially at a distance, and JPEG compression is never friendly to them. I think you were "bit" by that a little bit, and the rocks have a bit of the same problem. The exposure is perfect.
I like the burning that I think you've done. Bringing out the shadows makes the picture feel deep, and helps establish the feeling of distance while also making me feel close to the subject.
Obviously it's a retake of your shot, so I don't think there's any question here.
The shadows on the water bother me. Not that they are "wrong", just that I keep wondering "what caused them?" The colors seem a bit muted, but just slightly. This is a HUGE improvement over your original, by a factor of 2 to 1, IMHO. Very good "redux".
These are just my impressions and thoughts; I hope you find them to be helpful, constructive, and instructional. Thanks for entering; keep up the good work.
