Greetings from the Critique Club.

Composition: You have made some good choices in this. The lines of the pool draw our eyes from the lower left corner away to either the top right or top left. This lets us then take in the great sky and clouds and finally the trees. The only negative is that the horizon could do with being a bit more level. It's not far off so perhaps it looked ok while on the camera. Minimal Editing rules are tough!

Technicals: Well, this would score good in any of the rulesets but in Minimal this shows you got the technicals correct! Good exposure for the clouds and sunrise but still detail in the objects at the poolside.

Feeling: I didnt vote on this but if I had it would have been a good score. Lots of interest with very little "extras" in the shot to distract me. Jolly fine work!

PM me if you have any questions.

If it wasn't a Minimal Editing (Trial) Challenge I would say it's a typical HDR shot. (Didn't count the palms).
