This is the Pend Oreille River. The photo looks like it was taken facing north off the HW 2 bridge right at the washington/idaho border.

I really like the subject matter, and also all the earth-tones. It's perfect for the mood I've been in this week (it's finally warming up in New England!).

I'm not a complete stickler for the rule of thirds, but I think that this image could benefit from it. Maybe put the horizon line slightly closer to the lower third.

But overall, great work!

A suburb photo. Great colors and balance between lights and darks. And, as it should be, the reflection on the water is slightly darker than the sky it's reflecting, providing both weight to anchor the bottom of the picture and contrast with the brighter sky. As for the rule of thirds, if you consider the horizon to be along the top of the hills in the background, the sky fills close to one third of the picture, the land and reflections of the trees on the water make up approximately one more third, and the reflection of the sky in the water is yet another third. So it follows the rule of thirds closely enough - at least in the 1920x1200 version I downloaded. Other versions may be cropped differently. There is excellent rhythm in the undulating landscape and the windswept clouds. Good lines of movement to draw the eye in and out of the picture and plenty of variety in shapes and colors to maintain interest. All in all a fine composition.

I don't see anything to criticize here - and you all know how critical I can be. ;-)
