The composition is superb, especially the rocks on the foreground. The saturation is right on the mark. The noise is impressively controlled, even in the shadows. Very nice capture.

The only real complaint I have is with the blown highlight area around the sun, and especially in the water reflection. Considering you used a graduated nd filter, you should have been able to avoid it. Perhaps it's possible to apply some exposure compensation pull that area back into existence? In my opinion that would make this a superb shot and take it to the next level.

Overall highly impressive, and very enjoyable work. I say that as someone who shoots a lot of sunsets. Nicely done!

This is absolutely stunning. Amazing, amazing photograph. I hardly know anything about photography, so I can't praise you about anything technical, but I can say from the deepest part of my soul that this picture pleases me. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

Teach Mor, Galway, Ireland. If I ever get to the land of my heritage I will certainly have to find where you took this shot. This is an amazing photo sir, kudos to you. And thank you for showing off a little of the Irish countryside for all of us to enjoy.

Very nice! Since you asked for a critique and I am not a Premium member I'll post it here. There is one major issue here that needs to be addressed. The sky is darker then the reflection in the water. This happens when you use too dark of a GND filter for the sky. Right now the sky to reflection is unnatural looking due to the sky being darker. I would darken the reflection to at least match the sky's brightness. Then you'd have a hanger!
