Yes Wils Another masterful rendering from Sunset Tsoi. Don't get much better than this. 7/7 I'm also jealous of your diverse photographic opportunities.
Beautiful composition Wilson, I would have liked the angle a tiny bit down clockwise. Pnina
6/5 Its a shame he wasn't bending over and leaning on the railings a bit... actually, might have prefered it without the person. He seems to be disrubting the balance between the grass and windmill, but only a little. Peaceful scene, cool night air, maybe a slight breeze suggested by the ripples, the sign of a good holiday.
Wils You can lighten the grass no problem. Moving the boy on the bridge that's a different story. No matter what great color and composition. I was thinking of a different way to crop the image.
Hi Wilson, I like the composition and reflective work. Although I think Howard's crop has merit, I have to say I like the original as well.
Very nice composition and superb colours.

Wilson This is truly very beautiful. The color, the subject matter, the way the windmill and the man seem to be looking outward. I did try selectively lightening everything below the bridge, but then it changes the serene, thoughtful mood. So in the end, I must agree, your rendition is the most beautiful.

Personally, I like the original as opposed to Howard's crop (sorry, again, Howard!) The sky is dynamic, the bridge is wonderful, as it draws the viewer right into the image toward the solitary person and then to the windmill. The bridge is also wonderful because of the slight curve. And ... you've caught wonderful reflections in the water here. Nice work!!
I have seen shots in same lokashon as this, nice shot I love the calm water fore reflcshons. 6/6
Excellent composition, wonderful colors!! i love the deep blue tones of the water, you got in this shot. very well done wilson!
Being honest! Wilson, Indeed this is True Tsoi. I feel the shot is ruined by the character on the bridge. He is just too central! I would also have liked the grass at the bottom left to be a touch brighter. I appreciate this would be almost impossible to achieve.
Both cropping versions look not bad. However, personally, I like Howard's version better. The grass of course add depth, but detracts my attention from the main subject (man on the bridge+windmill) a little bit too much. Howard's version looks more balansed and more focused on the main subject. Probably, square format would be optimal in this case. Just my subjective opinion. Cropping, it's up to photographer.
Two "Bad" & "Very Bad," Improvement Suggestions? Thank you everyone for your feedback so far. Appreciate them all. BTW, Could the two 1s and 2s raters please elaborate and provide honest suggestions on how to improve it from being "bad" and "very bad" in aesthetic and originality?
Love colors and light. Great composition.
Hi Wilson, another excellent shot from you! Entire version is very nice 7/7
Good work wilson great mood.
I love the colors in this. Everything works well for me! I cannot understand anyone who would rate this low unless jealousy is the motivation.
Gorgeous composition. Colors are super and love the details. The sharpening is exceptionally good. Kudos to you Wilson.
Nice capture and nice color tone!
Thank you all for your feedback. Truly appreciate it.

More drive by vandalism, pure and simple. Maybe we've got some psychologists on the site. What motivates vandalism?
