Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi Gallatin...

This is an excellent landscape photo. The perspective aspect of the river works very well also. I am really at a loss for what to tell you on this particular photo for improvement possibilities. I like what I see and I don't have much to offer.

As I look at the photo, I believe that you may be standing on a bridge or waklway above the river. I'm not sure if there would have been a way to get the camera closer to water level or not, but sometimes that can produce a nice effect in a landscape shot of this nature as well.

This park seems like it would be full of great photo opportunities... I hope you enjoyed your visit there and took lots of photos :)

Keep up the great work :)

Great composition. This is a lovely nature photo. I spent some time in the southwest of the US last year and I love the landscape there.

Postcard perfect. Need I say anymore, besides I love it. This is wonderful. What is it like stretched including more on each side, for a picture to be hung above a couch. Get any like that. Would make a beautiful large couch one with two side ones of similar shots. The quality is this good.

The border is a little strong for me, although I really like this photo. Great way to meet the challenge, love the use of complimentary colors, textures and shapes. 8

Very nice shot - my eye wants to see more towards the top, but perhaps that's what makes it a good shot.

This is a beautiful landscape. The river leads me right into this scene and flows very smoothly... The detail and depth of field are great... - setzler

Nice landscape shot. Seems to be lacking something but I can't put my finger on it.

To my eye, the border REALLY hurts this image. It made an otherwise pleasing photograph hard to look at for more then a few seconds at a time.
