This is Kari Ann, greetings from the Critique Club:

composition: The shore line creates a very nice leading line for the photo. also, the horizon is in a good spot, as each of the bushes lead your eye to the center of the image. But, with that, there isn't a subject in the center, so it kinda loses that impact.

color: nice colors, but all a little bland. non have a concrete 'pop' effect. that may have been what you were going for though, so i'll leave it at that.

contrast: good contrast, but the sky could have really been pushed to the limit here, making it much more dramatic.

good focus, nice use of a small aperture for overall sharpness

depth of field
: again, good choice of f14.

lighting: nice overcast lighting

other: to me, this could have been much more dramatic, especially that you used HDR. But, some like to keep it simple, and i think this is what you were going for. i think that's what may have hurt your score, it just didn't have enough pop or WOW effect. I think this is a nice image, so to each his/her own, i suppose. Keep shooting, I'm looking forward to watching your profile grow! If you have any questions, feel free to PM me any time.

Nice wilderness shot. The debris edge adds a nice definition.
