This is a nice photo, reflected in a suitably nice score. There is a serene elegance here, and the theme of simplicity is well-supported.

Compositionally, the elements are arranged very well - the right-hand trees, the top left sun reflection, the bottom, underscored.

The colour range is a bit limited. The reflection could be a touch brighter and the silhouette darker. Or the trees could have some more colour to balance with the brightness more. Or the overall brightness level could be increased. But, for me, somehow the colour range needs something extra.

You could try cropping just to show the top half, portrait.

Overall, a nice photo, but nothing outstanding.


I tend to be a realist and thought this was a unique scene...that's what drew me in... It's not spectacular, but interesting.

The way you have highlighted the reflected sky color without including the sky is a refreshing and unique variation of a sunset.
