I like the balance of the 'star' below and the sun above. I also really like the placid look of the lake. That portion really speaks of serenity and stillness and thus aspects of zen to me. The colors are a bit muted and in this instance I'm not sure if that helps the image. I wish the colors, in the sky particularly were a little more vibrant, just to give the eyes something more to get lost in. Also, though I do like the balance the star offers, the way it is so bright and contrasted to the still water makes it a bit jarring which pulls me out of the zen mood. Overall I gave a 5

4: titlted horizon, both "star" and sun confuses me where to look, a bit busy for the challenge
