Beautiful color, density and depth of field. I'd like to see a little more adherence to the "rule of thirds" and not have this lovely composition "cut in half" by a horizon line right in the middle of the photo. The horizon line also tilts slightly "down" at the left side so could be a bit straighter but that's nit pickin. I'm not a member of the group but it's stated purpose is to receive feedback from pro's and I've been at this for 48 years. Overall a lovely photo.

Hi Dave, always happy to get a good critique. In both pictures, I did place the horizon near the center, though the sky portion is somewhat larger than the bottom. However, I agree it could be a bit lower. I guess I liked the proportions of sky and land and also used the trees to break up the horizon line. I'm usually very fussy about a straight horizon, but I find Photoshop's "leveling"line is a bit arbitrary when working with an uneven horizon like this one. The far shoreline has some beach areas backed by softwood forests, both of which are uneven, so it's tricky to decide where to split hairs. Thanks for the excellent comments, I'm always glad to get advice and ideas.

Lovely capture of a beautiful sky! v/f/pin
