Greetings from the critique club :)

Now this is going to be short and easy as there is pretty much nothing constructive or bad I feel I can say about this photo, you are one of my favorite photographers here and photos like this is one of the reasons. I really like this one, I would probably have given it a 7 if I had voted. It´s composed well, got a lovely tonal range, very serene scene and captured very well.

Still not the best that I have seen from you but I am not at all surprised it did so well in the challenge. Only to nitpick, the sky somehow isn´t awesome and I would have cropped out the white stuff in the lower right corner but other than that, very very good on all accounts. A photo I would have been proud to have taken myself.

As for meeting the challenge, dead on and absolutely. A worthy top 10 photo.

Kind regards, Larus.

Beautiful. If it weren't for the deep colors, it might be kind of boring, but that's not the case. Lovely reflection and sky.

Beautiful tones. I love the reflection. Very nice horizon. Looks very dreamlike.

There's a little something in the bottom right corner that probably should have been cropped out. But otherwise, one word...stunning.

A moon-like photograph... very impressive for a basic editing challenge, but some strange stuff going on. The shades are very funky (likeable funky) but there's one thing baffling me: there's something in the sky that looks like it could be the moon, and if it is, it's reflection in the water ~in front of the mountain~ seems kinda irrational. Well, either that, or you've got some neatly aligned dust particles on your sensor. Or, the third possibility, this is an orb hovering over the lake in low altitude and on this side of the mountain. Oh, and next time consider cropping out that little edge in the lower right hand corner.

A very nice location capture with great beauty. Personally I would stayed with only brown. 7 for the great capture.

Þetta minnir frænda þinn á fjöllin í Ólafsfirði.
Truflar mig aðeins að það er auka speglun á tunglinu í vatninu. Einnig sést aðeins í land í hægra horninu niðri. Mætti hverfa eða sjást meira.

This photo has a nice surreal look that is very appealing. I like the contrast between the moon's round shape and the clouds.

wonderful shot

Has a certain surrealism - almost like an invented landscape. Once noticed, the tiny bit of land bottom right is an annoyance for me, and leads me to think that a crop from the bottom mightn't have been a bad thing overall, and might also have balanced the composition a little more solidly. Excellent tones from a basic challenge.

Great landscape and nice rich tones. Personally, I would have cropped a little bit a the bottom because of the right corner.
