    Not too much going on in it, but I like it for some reason. What do you think?

    like you said not much going on, perhaps a black & white version with some contrast (especially in the sky) that way there's even less going on.

    to be clear; i like that there's nothing going on, so to make it black and white with even taking color away is a good exercise in composition and minimalism, making a good photo with 'nothing going on'

    It is a very subtle landscape. The amount of blue sky at the top of the frame almost mirrors the proportion of water across the bottom of the photo. The photo has five main depth planes,and is a very "flat" type of landscape. THere is absolutely no hand of man visible anywhere within it, which has become more difficult to accomplish within 100 miles of any urban center these days; there are no jet trails in the sky, for example...

    I would wager that this photo looks better and has more impact when seen large. On-screen at 1,000 pixels across, the impact is diluted, I am sure. This is a subtle photograph,and I can see why you're proud of it.

    Robert I like this and this type of photography... If you have not been to Clyde's gallery in the everglades you should go....He is an acquittance of mine and will sit and talk your ear off for hours about photography.

    Nice job, Joe

    It is simple but that's what makes it good.
