lay into it please! Remember this is the Critique Gallery and not the nice pic! gallery.
I can't really, It looks really good, the only thing I would say is it looks as if either u have dust on your sensor or noise reduction is on, cos you have 3 blobs at the top of the image.
Other than that it's a really sweet photo.
No complaints here... and mate I really tried honest.
When looking at this photo the main point of interest is the sunset (from my POV anyway). Composition wise the foreground doesn't add anything to me. I would try a more panormaic crop right above the larger piece of ice/stone that is sticking up on the left hand side...maybe even crop out the section of open water above that.
The trouble if he panoramas it like that is that it just ends up a big sunset - my thoughts are the rock and pool in the front add interest and re-emphasise the cold of the landscape. IMHO>
I'm with the duck on this one I think if you lost the landscape you might just lose the focus of the image into a big sunset. I like the rock at the front and the way the colour from the sun is reflected on the ice/water.
nice pic!!! i really like the shot the way it is....
however, i think the sunset is overstated actually (cliche, if possible) i'd crop it at the horizon or leave a sliver of sky before the brilliant sun, thus getting rid of the sun all together... the image still maintains the sunset, because you have the fire in the water & ice reflections... so we know it's there, but it's just not jumping out and punching you in the face now
Just beyond the "pool" the area become somewhat uninteresting to me, until you get to the sun. Aside from the little reflection.
i think its beautiful.. i really like the way the sun looks..
Thanks all for the comments
I like it. It's kind of interesting how the "warm" sunset still looks freezing cold. My major problem is that it gets soft really fast. I'd like to see a much wider DOF.
I'm up in the air about this one. In some ways I like this picture because it gives a very serine feeling when you look at it. I like the field of ice that is lain in front of the lens. On the other side of the coin, I don't really like how it's lacking a definite subject. I find myself wandering around the picture looking for something to focus on. I've looked at it a dozen times and can still not think of any other way that I would've done it.
