    I'm not usually one for naming photos but I thought this one was pretty fitting. Taken at Lake Tekapo on the south island of New Zealand.

    Incredible. There is pretty much nothing I can criticise with this. Shame the water wasn't a bit calmer maybe, but I have a feeling that it adds to the image. Well done.

    Awesome work, that is a brilliant shot!

    I was going to say maybe try cropping a little more off the right (that black bit on the horizon which is cut off) although that would change the position of the rock. Only a suggestion though.

    The other suggestion, see how it looks cropped so that the colour change is dead centre.

    Don't get me wrong, that shot should be mounted somewhere, just thought I'd offer up some ideas to see what they looked like!

    EDIT: On measuring it (roughly with my eyes while zoomed in) it looks like it's very close to the centre of the frame. Might just be the rock e.t.c giving me the look that the split is off to the left.

    I was thinking along those lines, but Mt Doom's explosions are causing the "red" back there! This is a great shot, worthy of printing and being on a wall.

    Beautiful. Shots like this are the reason I got into photography.
    I still haven't got any photos that are even close to as amazing as this, but I'm still going to keep trying!
