Greetings from the Critique Club

The first thing I see in this picture, once I take in the amazing colors, is the bird. This seems to be a very self-contained, serene world - the clouds and their reflections curve around to create this containment and it is the use of the centered horizon vice a "thirds" horizon that permits this. Despite the difference in lifespans, it is the bird who seems to be the more permanent inhabitant of this world - the man is transitory.

Technicals are obviously very good - as you already know, this is an excellent score and placement in a very competitive challenge - congrats on both and on the personal best!

An intriguing interplay of yellows, oranges and red to blow off the viewers socks off. Congratulations on your top ten.

The colors in this shot just blow me away! The small silhouette of the bird and the person just add that little extra oomph to the entire picture IMHO.
