The landscape crop does not work too well here IMO, I would prefer a square crop with more sky., 6

Nice pic but i'm not too sure where I should be looking at or what the 'anchor' point is- the foreground branches, the mid-ground rocks or the clouds.

I like it, but there i can't see enough to hook me and keep me interested beyond a cursory glance. There are nice touches all over it (reflections in the lake), horizon clouds and hills) but it looks a bit too snapshotty and feels heavy on the left hand side.

Looks like a very old place where "sunset" has multiple meanings: The sun is indeed setting - the obvious meaning... But nature is also in the process of "sunsetting" these rock formations, which appear near the end of their lives. And it's a place where one might, in the twilight of one's life, go to ponder the meaning of existence. Well captured.

I love Mono Lake. Very rarely, you can see still water and beautiful reflections of the sunset clouds in it. You got lucky and you captured it very well.
