Lovely work, great exp and comp, great light too. -1 for some visible barrel distortion (which is accentuated by the cove to the right where water meets cliffs) and might have been corrected in PP. Otherwise up there with the best.

Fab colours, love the stillness of the water - it looks like mist and a great silhouette.

Kudos to the model for holding still long enough to stay sharp in the final exposure! Adds a different element to the "long exposure water" shot, which would have been well done without the figure but is very impressive with it.

Great composition with the silhouette and rocks and all the rest. Excellent choice with the subtle colors/tones. I would have tweaked it into stupidness. Wonderful image.

really like the shot but the guy standing looks really out of place. Almost looks like a cartoon silhouette but it looks like he's way too dark for the scene.

pretty killer how sharp the figure is considering you must have had a long shutter speed

Very nice! It must have been hard to hold still for so long...I like it.

A perfect composition, which I know is stating the obvious, but why not start with the easy part. I was initially drawn by the tones and smooth color in the sky. I like that you kept the distortion of the horizon, but I will add a critique that you went to far with the sharpening. Such a smooth and tranquil moment, it's perfectly acceptable to leave an image naturally sharp (or soft in the land of DPC!). 7
