Pretty much the classic Wastwater viewpoint, and done to death. But then there's the light, which is magical. Very nice. BTW, there's a reason that viewpoint is done to death - it's just so bloody good!

For us, across the ocean, the location is closer to terra incognita Smiley It could as well be a classical British landscape, but masterly executed.

Shaun, welcome to the forum!

Based on your first post, you have a lot to contribute and I am looking forward to more. Your image indicates a professional, skilled technical level, and a very good eye for color and composition.

If you insist on a critique, then my nitpick would be to tone down that yellowish patch in the foreground (desaturate it a tiny bit?). It is kind of distracting among the prevailing dusk tones.

I thought the oposit than Slobodan about that greenish yellow in the front..., what I like most though is that you left and took advantage on the distortion of your lens, thus promoting the roundness of the earth! I feel that it makes the scene more communicative than similar landscapes that present the scene in a flat manner trying to only promote lighting. Regards, Theodoros. www.fotometria.gr

I'm not sure I see the point of having color in this photograph. It's essentially monochrome as it is. I almost feel it would be more effective in B&W rather than shades of purple.
