This is such a beyond beautiful photo. I don't even know where to start. The color scheme is so beautifully done (although, perhaps there's a bit too much red?). The rocks are captured wonderfully, with great detail of the lovely texture. The photo gives a sense of peace and harmony but at the same time, a sense of imagination and wonder. I wish I had more advice to give you but I don't. I think this is so wonderfully done. You have a great talent. I love that the water gives off a sense of mystery. As if being inside a fantasy world. Amazing job.

Looking at this photo I can almost feel the warm breeze from the sea on a summer morning. We are presented a very beautiful sea view and the colors are really impressing. On first sight they almost looked like from a fantasy world, where I'd try to find mermaids on the rocks.

However, looking at the title "Balance" I'm not sure how it applies to the picture as a whole.

The colors are really warm and tranquil, but the composition to does not look exactly balanced to me.

The "weight", in form of the heavy and strongly textured/detailed rocks is more to the left, whilst there is not much of a counter-balance on the right. Also the horizon is very high so that there is more emphasis on the big blue rock at the bottom than on the top. This rock also pops out because of its blue color (unlike everything else) and it makes an entry of the eye into the rest of the picture difficult. I wish there was a little more space on the right to show the water and give the water just as much space as the rocks are taking.

Try to think in terms of the lines you want the eye to be led along the picture. At the moment my eye is led to the right towards the horizon, but it finds no place to rest or any diagonal or curved shape that would lead me back to the left.

Overall, it's a great shot and I hope you don't mind me nitpicking. The flaws in composition I see are easily outweighed by the amazing color scheme and and the dreamlike athmosphere you can create so well in your photographs.

And again, this is beautiful. It seems to be a little rougher than the others, which is a nice change of pace to be honest. Very pretty too.

This is just stunning, I love the way the colours flow from blueish at the bottom to that gorgeous pink colour at the top. Both the sky and the water look absolutely beautiful in this photo.
