On second thought, it's a sunset.

Almost an abstract painting feel to this capture Joel. Great reflections and colour impact - works well for me!

This is a tough one as the reflection is so perfect that having the horizon at the approximate center of the frame gives a nice balanced feel to it. But is it too balanced thus static. I would suggest trying different compositions - more off top, more off bottom - to explore other possibilities. Pano crop too.

I have never known where to position the horizon on this one. I think a crop above the pines just might do it..

A very beautiful morning. I agree with cropping right above the pines.
