::: Greetings from Critique Club :::

Hi, as requested, here is an indepth critique of your submission.

First Impression - the most important one:
This is indeed fitting for the Challenge Shapes. Nice color and very sharp.

I'm by no means an expert on landscape photography, but the composition is the biggest problem with this shot. There are points of interest all over the shot, but nothing to draw my eye around the shot.

The subject is clear and fits well with the challenge.

Technical (Colour, focus, and light):
Colour : Awesome, very nice saturation. Very vivid but natural.
Focus : Is very sharp. Perhaps an even tighter crop from the original image would have brought even more detail, since we are restricted to 654 pixels.
Light is very nice. Not too harsh, not too flat. You seem to have captured this at just the right time.

To grow its vote?:
Once again, I'm not a landscape photographer. But compositional elements to draw the eye to points of interest would have added a lot to this photo.

You've captured a nice shot here. It fit well in the challenge and got an above average vote. But, comparing it to your other works, it is not your personal best work. Landscape, in particular, is a very challenging field of photography, but you seem to have a nice grasp on it.

Hope to see more from you soon,
