This is breathtaking!

I am more and more of the mind that although beautiful and rugged landscapes exist in abundance, the power of the presentation is tantamount, and you have acheived it here. Very Nice!

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge well.

Congratulations on your HM for your great landscape Konrad, well deserved. Apart from the lovely colours benefiting from the ‘golden hour’ you chose to take it in, there is a great dynamic from the motion blur of the water as a result of your long exposure. That dynamic makes it doubly beneficial as it is the leading line into the image and the theme of the challenge. I feel that the length of exposure is perfect whilst it creates the dynamic it is not too long to lose detail where it is most needed, in the water and the clouds. Perfect, well done.

A lush, dramatic scene with leading filaments and a leading zig-zag. What I first took for water now looks like clouds. Pleasantly baffling. A lovely image.

The dramatic epicness of this image compels me to give it a 10. Usually I try to resist my compulsions (rarely successfully), but this time I won't even try. I am WOW'd.
