Shot off a bridge looking down at a fisherman. There is major drought in this area but the anglers can get right on the water. I was thinking of that Nirvana song as I was working on it...

It's a really beautiful shot! Not sure what else to add here.

Nice color, reflections, and a human effect here. Doesn't really give rise to any feelings of "hell" for me, but a good composition nonetheless.

Beautiful shot. Thre reflection of the trees look baren, or burned, which really lends itself to the shot. Love the colors 10

Seems a wee bit shoehorned.. How does this conceptualise hell.. without the title, it wouldn't.. not quite sure how to vote on this one.. will come back later an revise.

It would be more hellish if the guy fishing looked like he was in pain, or maybe not there at all.

like this shot very much. So silence feeling here. Good composition, good colors, very good reflections.
But I can't really find "hell" here...sorry

This looks very relaxed not very hellish at all

From this perspective i'm feeling serene. however, i would imagine if you cropped it for the center reflection of the weeds (maybe even flipped it) the whole hell thing would be there.

Beautiful shot! I like the colors and composition. My 2 cents, this should be in 'heaven', not 'hell', though.
I especially like the reflection on the water of reeds - yet they aren't visible on the horizon.
My personal preference would be to have sharpened the image slightly more - a slightly crisper edge to it.
Very good photo!

This seems so much more like heaven to me. Who would hate being in such a beautiful place?
