Come on guys. You think this is great. It breaks every rule of composition. Of course, rules are meant to be broken. Amazing shot. I love the colors and the darkness of the photo. If you can pull off a picture this well while breaking the rules, you've done a WONDERUL job.
Excellent! The washed out quality really lends the picture that surreal quality you were going for. I also like how the horizone line where the trees meet the water/ground (?) is dark. It seems to blend them into their shadows in the water. It adds to the surrealism. And the sky!!! Awesome! Have you considered making a texture out of it?
Again, excellent! I think I could stare at this for hours.
It does not matter that we are descended from monkeys. The only important thing is to avoid going back.
