My Local Creek - Comment

You nailed the colors perfectly. The lighting is great too. Makes me want to hop on the moored boat and take a cruise out toward the horizon. Even the water looks inviting. Good catch.

Very nicely done. The boat and dock in perfect silhouette, lots of detail on the midground water, color is rich and shimmery. Noise is very well controlled.

One tiny suggestion, rotate counter clockwise by 1 degree to level the horizon.

Well done Kevin. A creek ? Wow that would be a major river in my part of the world. I love the silhouette of the boats and what looks to be somewhat after sunset on the horizon with traces of the the golden sky.
