|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Driving in the bus to the Nepali-Indian border, swamps still dot the landscape. At one time, the flat south of Nepal was solid malaria swamp. More animals were found here than any other country, it is said. The Royalty of England hunted here for tigers, crocodiles, one horn rhinos, elephants, lepers, and more. Death awaited those who tried to cross in the monsoon, the prime mosquito season. In the 1970's, the swamps mostly were drained, smothered in DDT, and the farmers from India converged on the land.|

Seems like a fertile landscape, as judged by the vegetation!
Attractive composition, I like how details are reflected in the calm lake...
A wonderful moody photo. The morning fog on the swamp and the stunning shaped clouds gives the photo a very serene look. I like the subtle colors and the soft warm tone of light in the back. I actually like the darker FG and wouldn't change a thing about it.
I think there are some really nice elements to this image. The foreground is lovely, though a bit dark. I like the grasses in front of the luminescence of the water. I think instead of dividing the image into halves: sky and earth, I would choose one or the other to be dominant. In this case I would have chosen 2/3 earth and 1/3 sky. I tried a workshop. (I'll post it tomorrow)

PS. I just went back and did a little editing on this critique. I think 5 spelling errors in one critique should suffice!!! : P I must have really been tired.
