WOW, this is all I can say.

Hello Kona
A very nice morning capture of these swans in the mist. I love the warm orange hues which create a relaxing mood. Very nice composition, colours and detail.

Hi Kona,
I agree with Alain, Wow! Beautiful warm colors, good use of the silouhettes, good picture. Maybe a little crop on the right side.
Regards, Francois

Yeah!!!!!!!!!! This is "o! my God" one...
Very well done Kona.

Hi kona,
Great silhoutte and POV. A very moody shot. I think the redness is a little too deep however. Also, the composition can be improved by giving the ducks space to swim into rather than leaving space behind them.
Nice capture though.

this is real art, perfect composition, TFS Ori

Another amazing shot, my friend!!
Excellent light and compo.

Beautifull photo. I like it very much. One of my fovorite sun sets on treknature :-)But I a agree (a little bit :-)) with the first opinion about croping.

Hello Kona,
Not much more to say... simply wonderful.

Hi Kona,

A great composition with stunning colors.The silhouettes of the geese, rising mists give a surreal feeling to the image.I agree with the crop suggestion.

Well Done & TFS.

Hello Kona,
Magnificent capture.POV,warm colors,foggy mood,framing,visual impact and composition are wonderful.Masterpiece!

Excelent moment. I love silhouettes myself, they are so essential and expressive, very artsy but without loosing shape.

Color and composition are very beautiful.

Great job.

This is really interesting. :) i really love the lighting here and the silluoette of the ducks. I would prefer the composition to be off centre, in this case i might be tempted to crop out some at the bottom. Otherwise, an interesting picture.
