    Being a sunset fan, I really like this one. The framing with the branches is very good.

    I might have gone for a little more foreground, but I wasn't there to see what kind of clutter that might impose.

    Thank you Pops. There was alot of dark foreground and I felt for a more balanced image the focus should be on the lovely pastel water/skyscape.

    Like Pops, my first reaction was to think there should to be more ground showing at the bottom. But, you're right - there should not. This works. It shouldn't. But it does.

    Without that fringe of grass, the timber post etc, the image loses a huge amount. Any more showing would have diluted the impact you've created. So, it's just right. Just shows, the rules are there to be broken in the interests of creativity.

    I would consider a slight crop of the top and left edge; but I do mean slight.

    I tossed it over onto the big screen and you are right in not needing any more foreground. I tell my students, "Step back for a final look." and then don't always do that myself.
