Beautiful, soft, expressive colors and dynamic foreground and side framing elements in silhouette with just the right amount of detail. Wonderful sense od light play on the water and the dreamy hint of the mid and background elements. Very emotive work with strong initial impact and great holding power. Composition draws me in and keeps me in to look at the details and luxuriate in the soothing colors. Outstanding work! Peace, Dan

This is a very pretty piece. I love the soft colors and the silhouetted foreground. Lots of detail to see. It almost has a layered look to it. Thanks for sharing.

I like very much this style in your last images; they remind me of those beautiful cartoon movies in the childhood - Jungle Book, etc. - they are so neat, full of special light and romantic.

I love the composition ..
The colors and design are excellent and the tall tree lends itself to the portrait frame very well. It keeps the eye wanting to see more and more. A very good way to keep the viewer lingering around to really see the fine work.. I think the depth you create with these is fantastic Shawn..Well done...Dennis
Oh,And I am glad you left the tree on the right on a slight angle.Most folks would put it in the frame strait and vertical..Nature is not strait...

    Thank you so much for the awesome review, Dennis. :) Just so you know, I spent over an hour looking at all your fabulous landscape/sunset photos yesterday. I didn't get a chance to view all, so if you don't mind, I would like to spend some time just browsing again today. I was totally in another world yesterday. You have taken some outstanding photos with a good eye for composition. It's really hard to comprehend how you get a photo to look like "photography" and not just a snapshot. Beautiful work! :)) Now, I'm wondering who's reviewing whom here...LOL!!

    LOL..We can agree to review each other! All input is good. Even thoughts from some very armature beginners have their place.We need to be able to pursue acceptance from all walks of life. We get so involved with our various little art communities we sometimes forget the public is really basically only interested in what looks good..Hopefully the work we show has good technical components AND is pleasing to the "just passing by.." folks as well. The balance between the two is where I personally want to be.. .. As far as the portfolio look all you want.. (It is not like you are a peeping Shawn! )Also you can see some different type stuff on ( Ducilla is the same screen name)....You might like the redbubble site... Dennis

    I just didn't want to feel like a kid in a candy store with her hand caught in the candy jar. Just wanted to let you know what I was doing. :)

This is so beautiful, and you are turning this into a series:) Wonderful details in the trees and grass, amazing softness of the mist you have added. I like the colors too, add some mystic atmosphere of the morning. My favorite here is the tree on the left, looks like a survivor. Great creation, thank you for sharing.

Dramatic blue sky beautifully offset by the black trees makes this a pic of great appeal and interest...the dramatic contrasts are very good indeed...Rob

I really love the colour tonings in this Morning Mist piece. It is fresh and moody with great silhouettes framing the water well.

Nice subtle detail in the water and rising mist too.

Lovely to view and well done.
