* Critique Club *

When it is committed an error must fill up the ash head. During the votation i have rated with 4 this image and this is the image that win the challenge.........
After this observation I can only explain you because I rated with a low rating the image. The reasons was effectively two. 1) Composition: the position of the flour mill too much on the middle, and the reflection line on the right not perfectly in the angle. Yes you have shotted in this position for the moon reflected in the water but for me is a disturbance element. 2) I want higher details on the flour mill.
Best Regards and Congrats.

That's what I say. The horizon is straight, the color is great, and everything is sharp as a tack. I bet you laugh whan people say "post processing".
