Hi, you might want to use your denoise filter to clear the sky of artifacts. I like the description you have given this piece, it would have made a great title.

You have two photos in one here. If you slice down half the page and crop down artistically, keeping the fine details of the 3 silouetted images you have one classy shot.(minus the pole) What you have up splits our visual attention with eyes going left to right to right to left and the power of the image has been lost. Taking this to monochrome was interesting but if the children were wearing brightly coloured bathing suits the colour would have added a bit more visual stimulation and excitement. I like this post and the creativity behind it.

Not sure i agree with photonut in this one. cropping let you loose some fine details, right side especially. No...i would like to say..great entry.

I only would remove the ugly pole (1/3), hahahaha

I like this one,works well in a silhouette mode,would crop out that sky though,feel the image would be stronger.

Did you put a bit of a tint on this because it seems two-toned almost, great catch.

It´s probably your intention to turn it upside down.. But when i rotate it back.. it´s an amazing picture!! don´t need the rotation to make it more mysterious. But that´s my opinion.

I empathize with the man above Coke bottle. Perhaps make Coke bottle a bit less contrasty. If you lighten the shadows of bottle it'll fit into the image a bit more.

I like how you shot this from the subject's perspective. You can almost feel the sand between the feet.

A longer exposure has given a nice feeling of blur to the boat coming into the frame. There is a softness in the water but the mountain lacks sharpness, however, sometimes softness is the way to go with these romantic kind of shots. Yes, romantic is a good word for this presentation. I like your compositional style as well by incorporating those boulders at the side you give us many focal points to rest upon as we do a visual journey through this landscape.

The tonal qualities shine in this presentation. Crisp and clear and the icing on this well baked cake is a human figure which always acts as an anchor point for our visual journey. Love the light source, the brilliance. This upload shines.

The light source on this is very effective. You take us from darkness into the light and into your angles, very cleverly done. At first I thought those were film reels on the ground and then recognized them to be faces, screaming. Very symbolic this photo....from darknes into the light where man is moving hopefully in a positive direction.

Ahhh if only "peace and with which all religions should be practiced." A photograph that takes our breath away and your artist's notes cannot help but make us ponder especially in today's time. I wish I had something constructive to say about your image but there is not a thing I would change it is top notch. Congratulations on taking a fine fine image.

Holy Guacamole, this is good. Without that woman in the photo it still would have been a great shot but with that person there this image skyrockets to the top of the pile.
