An experiment? Looks like you got a perfect image to me! I'd love to see a final image when your not 'experimenting' as this is wonderful!

Hello from the Critique Club,

Wow, 22nd place out of 600+ entries and a 6.68 score. Being just a registered member I couldn't vote on this challenge but after reviewing the results, your image is a good as any of those in the top ten. Looking at your profile, I expect to see a ribbon on your page in the very near future.

This image suits my personal preference well, as I'm not a big fan of the hyper saturated look. About the only suggestion I could make for improvement would be to clone out or burn the bright spot on the rock along the bottom edge. My eyes were initially drawn there instead of to the wonderful birds sitting on the rocks.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding this critique.

Tim

I like the composition of this scene. The birds (what are they, by the way?) add the right amount of visual interest without detracting from the mist-covered water. Very nice.
