Greetings from the Critique Club!

Hello Tinkie, we meet again *insert evil snicker here* :-)

I like this photo a lot, but would classify it more as a Sunset shot than an OrangeII shot. There is quite a bit of black in the shot and the black border, in my opinion, just makes the image look much smaller than it is. Composition is Ok, and there seems to be a fair bit of light falloff on the upper right.

I can see why you shot at such high settings, but even so there is a bit of softness around the edges of the willow towards to the right. Better to shoot with a lower ISO and faster shutter speed...and yes a tripod would have helped too! And shooting at even a slightly lower POV would have given you a better use of thirds.

As always, take this critique for what it is worth and above all, keep shooting.

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

Obscurity. What more drawing in the black can give a better result . Support for the photograph couple and longer exposure could have brought help

This picture tells me blue instead of orange. I know that there is orange, but it is not the main focus in my opinion. I also think that this image is too black.
The color tones are very pretty though

Not half bad, the light-blue sky drew my eye away from the orange.
