How beautiful with the colors in the foreground corresponding with those in the background. You've even got the plant to be perfect in a perfect angle in the middle, with its shadow, leading the eye. Just wonderful!

G'day Carolyns,

A very worthy winner of an Editor's Pick, this is a very cleverly composed sunset with a fantastic range of hues and a dramatic yet subtle contrast.
I feel it is cleverly composed as even though you have that little waterlogged bush almost in the centre of the frame, it acts as a focal point on the eye's zig-zag journey through the scene. The journey begins with the setting sun as it is the brightest area in the image then straight to the bush and down through the highlights of the dark water.
Really lovely work!
