Lol thank you for the in depth review.. I forgot I had critiques enabled. I appreciate your viewpoints :) I do agree the foreground is  cluttered but I really really like the spider-like dead branches and the red grasses and bushes collecting and reflecting light. This is what happens when you dont plan for an epic sunset haha you have to work with what subjects you have in front of you haha.

I actually have a strongly sky composed photo in my gallery from this same sunset.. only it was earlier and the colors are slightley different :\ Kahoolawe by Bakisto

 thank you for your input ^_^

First off let me start by saying wonderful colors. I don't think you could have picked a better time of year to take this shot. The deep browns of the water and light yellows of the trees give the photo a definite mood.

You certainly have a photographic eye

- However it appears the photo is slightly over exposed (viewing on a calibrated monitor) There is also slight camera shake, you can tell the photo isn't as sharp as it could be. I have also noticed in the camera data that you used an aperture of f/22. While it is true this will give the most 'depth of field' for sharpness throughout the photo an aperture this small causes diffraction. (meaning light bounces around inside the lens before it hits your cameras image sensor) This will definitely hurt image quality. To be on the safe side your best bet for a diffraction limited aperture setting would be f/16; but this obviously depends situation to situation. Finally I would add that resizing your photo to 1024 pixels (instead of a massive 4912x3264) is a technique called 'downsampling' short answer it makes your pictures look sharper when viewing on the web.

As I stated before great photographic eye! just got to get that technique and technical stuff down and you'll be pumping out great works for sure!

A very intimate composition. The framing works incredibly well with this. Normally such small moments of action are rather plain and lack real interest. Not at all the case with this piece.

The curl of the current really pleases the eye and the slight motion blur of the moving water conveys a sense of action.. an element most 'still' photos can never achieve.

And lastly the coloration of reflection on the top of the water really pulls this piece together.

When I saw this piece on your page I thought for sure it was a Daily Deviation. Sadly it is not, at least not yet <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)"/>
