I camped out at the Wolfberg Arch in the Cederberg. Morning light illuminated this structure beautifully.

What a coincidence, # 4 and #9 in the top 10 at the same location, and date uploaded. Did you both run into each other??

Just lovely, Congrats on the deserved high placement!

Very nice Philip and deserving of a good high finish. Tricky - a polarised filter might have helped the sky a bit - but then I'm guessing the reflection would have vanished. Still very good though!

An 8 from me... but it would have been a nine if it had less processing/sharpening. Still... I love the composition!

First off, the reflection doesn't do it for me. When I see a photo with a reflection, I want to see the whole top of the image in the reflection....not just the top part of the photo. The yellow "sunlit" areas also look fake. The water is too clear too. I know everything there is to know about photography so all I can give this is a nine. Lol !

Back for another look. This is one of the best landscapes. There are one or two better but this could be top 5.

This is such a beautiful image with lovely colours and great composition. I really like the reflection. This should do well and may even ribbon. Well done and good luck!

Excellent capture. Meets the challenge well. The reflection is very good, but I wish it was less center middle. The sky isn't quite right in color and gradient. However, I'd say this image will do well. Excellent title.
