One of my top picks. I was flabbergasted when I saw this didn't break a score of 6! Well timed capture that any photographer worth their salt would be proud to have taken. Nicely done!

A really nice concept behind the shot. Noticeably blown out on the right. I wonder if converting to B&W might do better to hide this and save the shot?

A really nice shot and captures the mood of the scene well. Pity about the PP work on the blown highlights on the right in the water... it really distracts the eye
