Post challenge: It was a heck of an effort to get this photo to some usable level. The light was a killer and Basic Editing made it even harder. Yes, I used the clone tool but only to get rid of some sensor specks. Thank goodness for Shadow/Highlight! I dont like the sky in this version as the clouds look jagged and fake due to the pumped up saturation and small image size. I'm really surprised at how well this shot did but I'll take what I can get.

A mystical thriller, and killer. I think this shows the skill and the eye to have ribboned. Excellent work.

Congratulations, 4th place is great. The editing gives it a mood and mre interest. You must be a good landscape photographer. The river and tonal contrast draws you towards the sun. The river looks like the head on a draft beer.

Living in the desert, I'm used to seeing mountain sunsets - this is a nice change!

Love the framing-- The only thing I don't like(and still cant quite put my finger on it)is that the trees are very low contrast with just a touch of detail. I'd almost rather see them silhouetted, giving more tonal weight to the swirling water. As it is, their tones aren't much different than the water, making the whole scene rather muted. Make sense? I'd like to see you rework this one with advanced editing as I believe it could be taken from very good to great! 8

I love the muted colors of the landscape with the last hint of saturating in the sky. Excellent dynamic between the soft water and the sharp rocks and trees. Exposure looks spot on - just a great shot overall. 10

gorgeous use of slow shutter - the details in the trees and rocks, the smoothness of the water - the composition to lead our eyes up the river - outstanding! the only minor thing that even slightly takes away is the hard lines of color in the clouds - they seem so artificial - likely due to the boost in saturation to get them to jump out a bit
