This is a breath-taking photo in it's simplicity. In my experience, it's the simplest photos that have the biggest impact.

The silky water contrasting with the rough tree limb and clouds is superb. Very well done. You have the limb & the sunset both within the middle 2/3 of the grid which is perfect for focusing the eye, if you use that method of composition.

I love how the tree limb combines both the hint of slate gray clouds and the purple tying it together - showing that not just water can mirror colors =).

The huge *kablam!* of color that instantly demands to be seen really packs a punch and adds an interesting excitement to this seemingly quiet and subdued piece ... well played. ;p

Overall, it's an excellent piece that would be equally beautiful on a wall in a gallery or in a home.

very simple and very beautiful. i'd frame this if you would crop just a little from the top, so the horizon line is more on the 1/3 of the frame than toward the middle.

I like how everything in the background is so linear, but the tree is all curvy but angular and dynamic. You must've used a slow shutter-speed to get that odd blurring of the tree's reflection, because it looks great! If you had wanted to I'm sure you might have been able to get a super sharp and detailed image, but I think you made a wise choice to allow for the blurring. It makes the tree look even more dynamic as compared to the still background, because it could almost be moving.

Excellent! Augh!

Thank you here too:) That blur of reflection is caused by the moving water(little waves), so i couldn't get sharper actually:)

Have you seen the like-wise named movie, by any chance? Very beautiful image. I like how the reflection is rather hazy, it adds to the atmosphere. Stunning light (as always, it seems).

I think you should return to that spot and take this photo again, but this time with a couple ND filters and at f/11 for more sharpness and a smoother reflection. Right now the reflection is a bit chaotic and ruins the otherwise peacful mood. Wonderful colours :)

:iconm-eralp:
m-eralp Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013   Photographer
Thanks. First of all this was shot at F/20 as you can see on details. It is way better than F/11 in terms of sharpness. I already had grad ND and a polariser here. Water was already calm, still i had an exposure of 121 seconds. Believe me water wouldn't look any smoother than this even if you could get an exposure of 121 hours.

I guess you are the "pro" here :D 
From my experience I would have assumed that you would have had problems with such a small aperture in terms of sharpness (defraction), but I guess my lenses just aren't up to par with yours then :) 
Either way I can savely say that your sunset/sunrise photos inspired me to give landscapes a shot, as I am headed for a vacation in Norway this week. Normaly my world is Macro, so forgive me if initial comment came out wrong. 
Btw. Is this a fisheye crop or a wide angle shot?

I'll keep looking through your portfolio trying to learn more about the subject. It's great to see that you are so active. Most experienced photographers on dA seem to upload their photos and abandon them :)

Schöne Grüße aus Deutschland!

Grüss dich!:)
Actually it is small apertures where you will get better sharpness. With smallest aperture possible and right focusing you should get a decent sharp image overall. No problem, we are all learning all the time and thanks for your kind words:)
If you are going to north of Norway, be up for the nights to see northern lights:)

It was wideangle lens i used here, it was not at its widest though.

Actally I will be in Kristensand which is about as far south as you can be :/ At least I'll get a chance for some sea sunsets. 
About the aperture, this (www.earthboundlight.com/images… is a problem that I frequently run into with apertures above f/16

:iconm-eralp:
m-eralp Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013   Photographer
Sorry for late reply. That pic is a bit tricky actually. It isn't loss of sharpness there but loss of details because of overxposure possibly. Smaller apertures should always increase depth of field.
