The foregound colour, texture and tone you have achieved is quite stunning. I would suggest cropping out the top half, loosing the horizon and sky.

You may be right about the cropping, there is something about the sky that bothers me a little, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is. Thanks for the comment.

I do like this one. Nice and atmospheric. Hard one to call on the sky really. Not a fan of long foggy water shots, but works well here.

The foreground texture and tone are stunning,I suppose its the change of texture when the your eye meets the sky, just doesn't sit right.

I think the main focus is the foreground and the eerie fog around the rocks, the sky draws the eye away but does not add particularly to the quality of the shot, not sure if I would just leave a thin line of the orange or take it out altoghether. Lovely moody shot.

Looks almost as though the ground is covered in frost. Not sure I like the comp. here, but technically super.

I'm going to go out on a limb on this one. I think the pictures comp and exposure are right on, it's very easy to blow out the sky on a exposure like this. I'm assuming a 3stop nd filter? Anyway nice shot Maculatas! Smile!
