Hi! So this is my first Critique so please don't hate me if I totally suck! Anyway lets get started
SO to start off I love the colors. I feel they are well brought out and capture the feelings very well. I like were you placed the horizon line! I am usually a sucker for the high/low horizon line but I feel this one was placed very well. The ocean in the background is very cool and the fact that you have no people in this picture works very well!
Something that bothers me is the bottom shadow. It must be from a pole, but anyway I feel its very distracting. In general I feel like all the shadows in here are very long and sort of distracting.
All-in-all I this this a beautiful photo and the colors are awesome! Its a very nice capture of fall and I really like it! Thanks for taking time to read this!
First off, this type of photograph is quite commonly seen but I still like them. They will NEVER get old. Yours, however, is one of those which capture the 'essence' of the scene or setting. Very nice. Now on to my usual stuff.
I see something in this picture, a vision. Although I have a personal preference to always have a description for a photo, a lack of description allows the human mind to come up with many different scenarios. I like thoses types, yours included.
As said before, the originality of this photo isn't very rare but still great.
Your technique, as always, is really good. Great clarity in this photo and also, just the right amount of exposure.
The impact, is related to the vision, and referring to that, I'm still saying the impact will be different for everyone. I feel a great impact for this as love autumn and I always feel more relaxed during it. So,great job.
Overall, you get a 4.5/5 from this. Keep shooting!
