ISO200 used to half shutter speed to keep the long grasses still during exposure

Nice muted colours. I like the symmetry of the image.

Excellent composition. Alignment was precise for the reflected image.

love the symmetry, accentuated by putting the horizon line at the middle

It does not convince me, a composition so centered and with the horizon line right in the center, leaves the image static, without dynamism, the color, however, if I like it.

Very nice, but I think you could make the light pop a bit more, it's sorta muted a bit too much.

Nice scene. I like it.

I think this is one situation where maybe a 6:4 crop would perhaps benefit the composition.

A little more post-processing to emphasize the warm tones and cool shadows, and maybe some light dodging and burning to emphasize the lights and shadows.

nice but it’s too perfectly centered. I would have shot it wider to allow for different cropping - as said before me, a 6:4 crop with the mountain off centered would be my choice.
