    great capture!
    I would have liked to see 2/3 sky...but it's ok...not always thinking of that when you're there...
    It redeems itself because the water is so crisp and good looking.

    Very nice. Another 5 minutes to get the sun touching the horizon, and as was noted, 65-80% sky instead of half-&-half would've made the difference.

    Hmm.. Thank you all for your comments so far. To tell you all the truth this photo was taken by my dad, who has little photography experience (ie. he shot this in 'landscape mode'). I just did all the post processing.

    Anyways I think I liked the foreground water he was able to achieve by having the horizon line 50/50, if he pointed the camera up more it seemed like he would have missed out on some of that foreground water. (I also think a crop of this picture was out of the question, as I didn't want to lose the water or lose some of the sky). So I guess this shot will have to live with a 50/50 horizon. :wink:

    Keep the comments coming please!

    You can thank my dad for the composition! He did a pretty good job with that aspect. I think I deserve some of the credit for the colors though, my post-processing seemed to make them pop. :)

    Thank you guys for the comments, it really makes my day! [​IMG]
