Arrived just before sunrise - I know its been done before but not by me! Wanted to capture the beautiful early morning colours - shame the sky is a bit boring.
0.9 ND Grad, tripod, remote release.

Yes it's been done before...I alone must have uploaded 20 similar uploads. This for me is good but maybe you might have been better being lower down so that the foreground rock was more or less at lens level. That would have reduced the effective gap between the rocks and the middle distant reflection of the trees...that just seems a little too much space at the moment. A tweak to levels and curves may also give the shot a little more "punch" to it and this more impact.
Hope the cc helps a bit and don't forget, that's only my opinion
Thanks Mike - I think you are right about getting down low but it only occured to me whilst processing the image - there is too much water I agree.
I have played around with the image in elements (with a variety of technicolour results!) but the colours here are how best I remembered it - if you get a minute post a mod and I'll see what you mean.
Don't agree about the water line - it just looks like the bank curves towards the viewer on the left. The far left tree is definitely closer than those towards the centre of the picture. The sky looks strangely murky, though.
Thanks for your comments - the sky is natural - there was a pinkish tinge towards the horizon. I haven't changed an awful lot in Elements - just upped the saturation and contrast a little.
The image was level as I always use a spirit level - the bank of the Tarn curves towards the left.
Thanks for the mod Mike - I did try to boost the colour at first but it didn't print very well so I toned it down a bit - your mod looks good on screen.
I know nothing about landscapes but for me, there's far too much foreground and the colours, the trees and that wonderful reflection are too distant and therefore it's hard to see any detail in them.
The top half of this, with a litle also trimmed fro the top makes a wonderful, albeit very traditional, landscape.
Just my opinion.
Thanks for your comments Bren - as mentioned above I think I should have shot from lower down to cut out some of the water in the foreground. It has printed pretty well however.
Yep, think you were trying to make the best of the conditions like me. Spent the next 2 hours trying (and failing) to get over hardknot pass. Eventually got to Wasdale head though.
Nice shot BTW - with the lack of cloud, its probably best to concetrate on a smaller area (or crop). I had to.
All the Best
