Welcome on the forum, Jason!
This is a very nice photo with a good, moody sky. I also like to soft colors and the not-too-long exposure.
Well done.

I like how the lighting and composition convey depth.

I like this a lot too, although the horizon has an almost CG effect it.

Jason,
As much as I enjoy the image in its entirety, the lower half for me is a treasure in its isolation...would love to live with the lower half printed large for awhile. Really nice...

Thanks everyone. I agree that the horizon has an almost "fake" look. I'd like to say I did that in post processing but I did very little to this image. That is one of the things I love about long exposures, especially in odd light situations, sometimes you get the unexpected. Patricia, I agree, I considered doing a crop to see how it looks. I will post it up when I do.

I like it, except the highlights in the water look to me like they were blown out and then pulled down using a curve - gives them a somewhat muddy look.  If there's no information there you can't fix it, so I'd leave them bright.
