The colors are a bit intense, but nice job with the clouds. Mine always get blown out :(

Comment by cynthiann:
Very pretty scene, maybe a bit overprocessed... especially with both a vignette and a border. I would have chosen just one if any.

Comment by ELLIPS:
Mmh...There something "zen" and balanced in the composition indeed...but the vivid, almost oversaturated colors, are working a bit against that mood.

Comment by Citadel:
The processing really hurt this image. I think that it was simply pushed to much. The colors are oversaturated, its over sharpened and the vignette is distracting.

The scene itself is good and the composition works but the processing makes it look unnatural.

Fair comment of the sharpening - I usually do for this website but forgot to do so in this case. Updated. Thanks!

Compositionally, you have a very strong entry, I think. The "subjects" in the shot wrap around from upper left down and through the bottom right, generally. This gives it a sense of balance and movement. The small amount of negative space also pushes the viewer's attention down into the action.

Technically, it is also well done. The exposure allows for good details, and the blurred foreground sets up good depth of field.

So, it is a well done photograph, with little that could be improved upon; however, I have found in the 7+ years at dpc, toys as subjects don't tend to score well, generally (there are some very noted exceptions, but overall. . .). I'm not sure if it is because adults don't connect with toys in general or what, though I suspect it is more a case of having higher expectations -- if you are shooting toys you have control over everything in the shot, therefore it needs to be perfect and/or very dramatic. Don't know if that was the case here, though I suspect it may be.

And like one commenter noticed, the white guys are just too happy to be killing their enemies. :)

Good work, though, and best to you in future challenge.s

Great wide angle. I like how the bridge seems to be looming over the boat.
