    I don't care for it divided so evenly. The black shape draws a lot of attention to its symmetry. Once your eye sees the top and bottom are the same, there's nothing more for it.

    I agree the centered horizon kills any tension.

    Great processing.

    I like it..great look and the composition is good..

    What I don't like is the lack of definition at the shoreline......... in other words, it is slightly underexposed so that the silhouette looks more like a rorschach test than a scenic photograph..

    I agree with Bitter Jeweler and KmH.

    Other than tha HOLY MACARONI! That is a really cool sunset shot...not only is the sunset cool, the reflection is cool.

    Great shot!

    Man, that's pretty cool!

    Just for fun, try cropping it in half (crop the top half off) then flipping it. I bet that would be awesome. :)

    Something like this. That's just a crappy screen capture that I rotated 180 degrees (you could rotate, or flip - depending on what side you want the tree to be on).
