    Beautiful Composition. I like everything about the image.

    Low eye level Perspective really makes this one.

    Lovely composition and exposure for the SH. Great HA and the reflection and water smoothness add to the calming nature of this photo. That eye!

    This is lovely Dan.
    Great low POV, love the way the water in the FG blends seamlessly with the BG.
    I even like the reflection! (and could see a crop with a bit off the bottom).
    You have shown the purple iridescence beautifully.
    IQ excellent as always,
    Gail

    Daniel:

    Lovely. POV, handsome fellow, angle in frame, wonderful water.

    Maybe a few delicate clone stamps as the reflection exits the frame.

    Beauty

    Cheers

    What a serene shot. Lovely fg/bg, good iridescence, detail, POV, HA; all of it. I agree a bit off the bottom wouldn't be missed.

    Hi Dan, love the way this guy stands out against that silky green water and background.
