Colorful water reflection
Lens: 18-55 mm Kit lens Camera: Pentax K-30 Photo Location: Maroon Bells, Co ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F11 

I would love some critique on this. This is not an overly edited photos and these same colors were visible unedited. The only major change I did to this is to darken it a bit to show colors more clearly. Let me know what you think please!

It is a bit hard to give a good critique when the whole photo consists of water. There isn't that much to play with. That doesn't mean it is a bad photograph. It just isn't a very complicated one and I am unable to give you any pointers to improve it. The colors are nice and vibrant but not to vibrant and the sharpness is there too.

Cool. I like the colours too. One can't say a whole lot about composition, because the 'usual rules' don't really apply to this one, but I do think the different colour patches lead your eye around the photo, which is good... you didn't frame it so you only had one colour area.
Closeups of the reflection areas would be fun. If you have similar conditions & can go back, try zooming in on just a little area, & shooting at 1/250 or something like to freeze it sharply, & see what neat patterns you get.
And welcome to the forum

I agree with the above comments. That said, maybe you could crop slightly on the top and right, to bring the divide between blue and green more into the middle of the image? Not sure it would work, just a thought. Also, this could be a fun one to play with borders on...maybe doing an angle cut on top left/bottom right borders, or a satin border effect...I dunno, just strikes me as a possibility. very fun image!

This image would be a nice wallpaper or BG file for your PP software. However, it lacks any true composition, or subject.
