    Great colours, contrast and depth of field. Something interesting in the foreground, middleground and background. Lots of interesting lines for my eye to follow and details to explore.

    Looks like a winner to me Pat. I like it!

    I would love to see this scene in a wider aspect ratio such as 16:9 or even 2:1.

    My only critique is that this image is so nice that I would like to see it in a larger size.

    At first sight I loved the image. But now I am finding something missing. Can't decide what. May be the foreground is not too interesting.

    Sorry. I don't meant to sound harsh.

    Yeap it is great but... as Frank mentioned a different crop of wider aspect ratio would probably fit better. I find the lower one third of the foreground not too interest. I also don't like the huge white border. A small black one would focus out attention to your great image.

    And finally since this is a great image it would really like to see it in a bit higher resolution.

    Many Thanks to you all for your constructive opinions. I struggled to decide on a crop so thought I'd post this one and again ask for your very constuctive opinions.

    Great picture. The second one is much better than the first. The dark border is more pleasing than the white one.

    bye

    Wow, I totally agree. I loved the first one, but as soon as I saw the second crop, it just really came alive. Beautifully done!

    Re: Paxe's Sunrise

    I like the moment you captured & wonder what a greyish border may look like. similar to the photo colour itself. Might it add a ;i could be there too; dimension? The second border is so much nicer than the white to my eyes.
