This is very nice! I voted it a 9 without knowing it was you.
Good Job! I'm going to have to practice doing this effect. I like it.

I love the texture of the rocks and water, it is so intriguing. The sky is gorgeous.

Good demonstration of HDR, love the water and the rocks, colors. I think that the ghostly person on the right would be better if he/she were more solid, or else eliminated. Also consider less rock and more water in foreground. Very nice.

I am no sure that your people 'add' to your shot, I find them placed in a way that takes away from the scene and they compete for my attention being on opposite sides. I really do like the landscape part of your shot tho.

Having the person moving from one side to the other during shooting is a distraction to me -although it is probably the point of the shot. The colors are a little too intense, but the use of HDR to bring out the details in the foreground without blowing out the sky are well done

I really like this photo some of the colors seem off but you still have a great score from me.

I'd like to know more about how this was processed. Do tell!

Great texture on the rocks. I would have liked to see the person on the left as the focal point of the image and lose the ghost image.

Great colors and concept. At first I thought your shot was too grainy but after a second look I think it's just the colors in the rock (which.. wow, those rocks are really awesome) since your sky and water look so great.

Neat colours and DOF, but I would prefer to see this with only the person on the left - the other ghosted person is a bit too ghostly for me! But nice work

dont think the half visible person wroks for this shot but creative none the less. great use of HDR too. Good luck 7

the idea is very good. the details on the rocks are good and even the colours are good. why that cut on the boy/girl on the left? you need of a transparency on the legs of the man on the right for a good result.

I love the pic but I wish the "ghost" was not there.

I would love the shot if it wasn't for the double exposure.

Nice idea to try and balance the rock in the upper right with the person. However, I think it would work better if the person were more in the lower left corner.

The HDR affect seems a bit over done as the rocks in the foreground appear a bit cartoonish.

Nice image, but other self is distracting imo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

How GORGEOUS! I wish I could see the whole person in blue, but the photo is so incredible in every other way -- it is only a minor distraction! There's such a stunning display of light, colors, shadows. I'm not an expert on HDR, but from what I know, this certainly looks like a fine example to learn from! 9

This would be levitating meditation ;) beautiful!

I find the ghost image to be more of a distractant than anything else. The rest of the image is very nice - only the blue jacket looks a bit too processed
