Nice!

Would've looked really great with a longer exposure.

I really like the composition and colors!
I personally think the image could be a bit sharper, but I still like it very much.

Great composition. The rock makes the image.

Agreed.  The rocks and the silky look of the water really make the picture.

I also agree with JBeckwith, a longer exposure to soften the water might have also looked real nice.  But that certainly doesn't take away from the photo you got.

Love the colors, too.  I generally prefer to be looking UP at a landscape, rather than down; I would have put the horizon on the bottom third and included the sky instead of the rocks.  Actually, truth be told-I would have done both, then spent 20 mins arguing with myself later about which one I preferred :)

I think it's perfect. I'm not fond of those overly misted out Big Stopper shots (even though I have a Big Stopper)

Maybe a bit boring without too many items in the shot, but it was just us, the Rio, and the jungle in the back, on that evening in the Tigre Delta coming back to Buenos Aires ... i like the colors as if the sky was on fire (no touching it, it is straight out of the camera) and the quietness feeling of the small waves on the water ...
