This photo submitted by Regina Montgomery is terrible. It shows the classic mistakes of a beginner. The line where the water meets the land is too centered, cutting the photo in half. Whatever she was standing on when she shot this is sticking out onto the bottom of the frame. Including this element might have been okay if for instance she was sitting in a boat and included the entire front of it in the photo, but this doesn't work. The trees on the mountainside are not in focus and need more contrast. The sky is blown out so much that there is no detail left. It's just an upside down white triangle. This photo could have worked better with a good composition and exposure.
