I'm not sure if this photo work's too well, I'm really not used to composing for square format.

I did like this rock though.

On the side of the rock shaded from the sunset, the orange lichen seems to glow -- orange lichen isn't usually a light source.

Nice image. It's a very well balance shot. The square format works perfectly. The triangulated form of the river works well to counteract the diagonal of the riverbank. The wind swept tree works well as do the location of the rock and I like the pattern of the flattened great. Plus great light.

A few things I would say against it and it's easily fixed are, the colors of the setting/rising sun look really saturated. I'd desaturate it a bit and I agree with the son of Abraham that the lichen look too orange. It is possible that the saturated colors are after uploading it to the web so if your original looks fine don't change it Smiley You could just desaturate the image for the web to get it close to what the source file should be.

All in all well done

Hmm yeah, i think i may of ran the dodge brush over the lichen a bit too much i notice the problem with the saturation now.
I seem to be a bit hasty when it comes to processing my images and i tend to rush in to it when i get the shot home and not really think through it too much.
I still have the original in a lyered Tiff file so I'll try to dial down the saturation a bit as it was almost unbeliavably colourfull that night and upload a version when i get home from work.



Thanks for the comments, it helps me fine tune images a bit more when getting feedback like this Smiley.
