HI from the CC Club

Gorgeous photo.

It looks surreal, almost as though it has been painted or drawn, .

I think to get over the 'thats not real aspect' would be to have more rocks showing. A little more detail in the rocks would give it some depth. Or even having more rocks in it. The reds on my computer are very vibrant, dominating the scene.

I think you did a wonderful job on this.

Reminds me of an old blacklight poster ... something to stare at contemplatively.

This is wonderful. As cliche as sunsets are, you just can't go wrong with an intense shot like this. The colors are great without being over saturated. I'm bumping it up.

absolutely mesmerizing, I was going to say over processed, but its right on the border for me. More rocks shown in the frame would eliminate some reflection on the water making it less smiting...and perfect. 8

Fantastic! DOF could be more inclusive of the near left foreground, but this is still destined to make the top 5 for sure. Wonderful capture.
