Beautiful photo, the sunset adds so much drama to the photo. The trees on each side make for a wonderful framing. Your reflection is near perfect as well. In all honesty you did a fantastic job on this. Well done.

great shot

I am sure this shot will do better from others, but I find it is too centered and stark. The reflection captured is decent though would like to see it without it.

Wow, thats an amazing reflection and a nice colour gradient in the sky. I think this is lacking something, but thats probably just because you need to include so much background to fit in the whole monument + reflection. Good luck with it.

Thank god the crane is finally down. I've been trying to get this shot for months! You beat me to it. Nice capure and use of the reflection. I think the image could be stronger if you tried to keep strict symmetry including the trees on the right in your crop. You also might need a slight rotation. Great shot. 8

Impressive! I like how the reflecting pool is actually doing what it was intended to do. Great job.

Very good shooting. Not as crisp as it could be, but a good shot.

great sky, and the lighting really makes the spot where the brick changes color stand out (one of my favorite things to point out on the monument).

Nice shot. Beautiful sky. A top pick.

Great job getting the whole reflection in the water! Almost perfectly centerd. The colour of the sky is brilliant.

This has become a cliche but it is an excellent photograph - a striking rendition with a near perfect reflection and beautiful graduated tones - 9

Excellent shot. It's only very slight, but I do notice it's leaning slightly to the right.
