This has a lot of the sme magesty that domsanto's "Locked Chain Link" affords but in a subdued glory of nature mode: passive and horizontal opposed to d's active and vertical, relaxed and blended opposed to d's exciting tension and contrast.

Quite a nice piece.

I agree that this is a nice piece, the only thing that bothers me (and it's a tiny nit) is the sloping of the horizon line off the left edge of the page... I think that for this foggy and neo-abstract (did I just make a new category?) a straight horizon line would have served better.

The handling of the top half is really lovely.

I detect a pattern -- to the extent that two of a kind can be a pattern. Very nice, I like your scheme.

I like to see a little more darkness in the reflections... Beautiful.
