Spent the day in St. Augustine, Fl for some site seeing after the soccer tournment. This is the view from the fort Castillo de San Marcos.

Might have over done the saturation. Looks like a post card. Don't think this will do well. Some I am sure will say I still have too much land in the photo. I feel the land is framing the water, which is what the challenge details said you could do. So hopefully I won't get a DNMC comment. This may not be exciting to most but I just wanted to share the beauty I saw from the fort with all the DPC folks. Enjoy!

the horizon in this shot is centered giving a filling of balance.
but, i think that the impact is less than it could be. i would have cropped it in, to the place between the trees and the tower on the right. the space left of the trees is wasted space

but,other than that i like it

That's some seriously intense color. I'm assuming you increased the saturation...you may have gone a bit too far...it's right on the verge but it's still a nice shot.

So clear with no haze! I love how the blue, green and gray of the building work together here! Nice composition and sharpness! Should be hanging on the wall or be made into a postcard.

Great color, but just appears a little to sharp or contrasty and your horizon isnt taking into count the rule of thirds.
