    I like that.....nice reflections too. I would crop some sky out if anything - but yes nice work.

    Agreed a bit to much up top for me...a slight crop would soon sort it..

    Lovely shot, but I agree with above about taking out some of that sky, these shots always seem better when they're a little more panoramic.

    I like the sky - maybe rather than a crop, would have been nice to see more reflected in the water, but nice pic anyway

    I agree still a great image.I wonder if you could move the tree line a bit higher in the shot to allow more reflection of the sun and a light trail in the water towards the bottom of the frame it would add more to the image.

    Great shot but agree it could be improved with a more pano crop removing a bit of the sky :)
