Hi Phil,

Welcome to TL ... This is an impressive shot... well composed with sharp crisp colors, I have one comment though... Since the sky is more dramatic than the water, I would show the horizon lower, to show more of the sky and less of the water....bravo.... tfs

Best regards,


Hi Phil, beautiful colours reflected in the water and the tree in silhouette.Fiona

Hi Phil,

Welcome to TL :)
This picture is very beautiful. I like how you separated it into two parts, with the sky on the top and the sea below. The colors those elements are creating are fabulous and the atmosphere looks really magic.
I Like the detail of the little Tree Island in the left.
Nice PoV and composition. You've done a really nice shot =)
