Ignoring the rule of thirds, a very conventional 50/50 split with this, but sometimes it works if you want to include reflections in water. A cold autumn morning when the sun was very low but thankfully no wind.

Its a very nice tranquil scene. I like the reflections. Having the vertical 50/50 doesnt bother me, - would suggest though not having the house also central, - but its nice still.

A little underexposed when I download it and can also benefit with a touch more contrast. I noticed the -2/3, so you anticipated blown highlights, and look like you could have done well without any exposure comp. Always look at the histogram view in the LCD after a shot, - you can tell right away if the exposure comp is needed or not and take another shot.

Ive uploaded a mod to show what I mean, and also sharpened a little. The trees closer to the camera are no as sharp as object further away, so for f/22, make sure you are focusing 1/3 the distance into the shot, and not at the furthest point.



regards


Willie

Thanks for all your comments. It proved rather challenging with the sun very low in the sky. Yes a tad underexposed I agree but many of my landscape shots of mine are this way because I think you retain more colour depth, and you can always lighten in post processing. As far as the -2/3 is concerned I bracketed 3 shots 2/3 stop apart and I liked this most. The sharpening I agree needed a little more. It was only after posting I realised I had not checked the "sharpen for screen" option in Lightroom when exporting to JPEG. I also used the hyperfocal technique of which I am a fan and manually focussed at approx 10ft as I remember. Having said all that I do like your mod better than my original. Damn! Sad

Thanks for responding. Contrast improves colour depth, underexposure dulls colour.
