Beautiful shot. Congrats on your yellow. What impresses me most is the reflection of the smoke on the water.

Oh my gosh, this is beautiful. I missed it during voting but you deserved the ribbon.

Absolutely stunning. Colors are awesome. I think the ripples actually add to the overall image, though it would be nice to see one with the water as smooth as glass for comparison... Did you get one at all?

Well done.

Lovely blue on the water & nice reflection, also like the cropping but something about the yellow in this shot doesn't work as well as it could for me. 7 from me :o)

Superb colours and the rippling reflection is excellent. I'm glad you chose the vertical format rather than horizontal. It is the kind of scene which demands to be photographed.

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow.

Love the juxtaposition of the beautiful sky and the ugly chimney and pollution.

The deep colours of the foreground draw the eye into the image and the sihouette is very dramatic without being cliche.
