In my opinion the colors work really well for this landscape composition. The variety of tones in the sky create a nice dramatic effect. I believe moving the horizon down to the bottom horizontal 'Rule of Thirds' line will create a more dramatic scene and give you a nice panorama feel to the image. The sky is the more dominate element than the water so moving the horizon also gives more emphasis to the sky. I did a quick modification and hopefully it will upload.   Posted: 12/13/2019 21:30:49

I agree, your edit improves the composition and keeps our eye focused on the place where the viewer's eye should stay.   Posted: 12/26/2019 10:39:53

Good call Jeff; thanks; I like it. The reason I took the lens cap off was to capture the sky as there was some weather coming in. I suspect I have others that are more sky oriented but this pano look is nice.   Posted: 12/14/2019 07:54:07

The image is very interesting but the bright area at the bottom right of the photo is bothersome. I agree with Jeff that cropping some off the bottom greatly improves the composition.   Posted: 12/17/2019 20:58:10

great sky! I love the clouds
The colors of all those blues juxtapose well against the yellow/oranges of the cliff.

The bright area did catch my eye in a distracting way. so I would crop off the bottom. One thing I try to do before "finishing" a photo is to turn it upside down -- that way it becomes abstract for an instance and you can see what is the brightest parts of the image, and discern if that is where you want the viewers eye to go...   Posted: 12/26/2019 10:39:04
