First off, the composition is really solid. With the almost pyramidal shape of the foremost stone guiding the eye straight back to the lightest part of the image with the help of the fallen tree gives strong direction. Saturation of colors gives atmospheric tension and any altered coloration/enhancements that you gave to the water and stones add appeal. This piece is really heavy, thick, saturated and melancholy. Fabulous. There are a few stones that have odd shadowing or seem out of place towards the very center of the middle ground. Central compositions expose weak spots like this. Overall great job!
What do you think?

This is a great shot. It would be really nice to see it in a larger format...maybe not every one, ...but once in a while...I bet they're really nice!

Thank you for the look inside. A really nice shot and good work, it holds up very well in the larger format.

Thank you. I'm glad to be able to show you that, so you can appreciate it from a technical aspect as well. When I print, it's 13500px long ways at 450dpi. I like to print on large sheets of satin at 40x60 or 40x80 - it makes you feel like you are really standing there! :)

Looks like another thunderstorm.^^ I love when the heavy clouds burst and let some light through, especially if it's golden/colourful light during sunset. Lovely composition as well, I would certainly like to see the details on the log in a bigger format. :) The water in the center of the image looks kind of weird due to the "long" exposure. Seems like the waves were too big so the exposure wasn't long enough to smooth them out, although long enough to lose the details/sharpness on them.
