Quite a pleasant shot. Misty and soft but with enough detail to set the scene. Yes, nicely done.

First and foremost, this is a lovely atmospheric shot.

There are several aspects that could, technically, be "better" - but none would necessarily make the shot nicer. For instance, nothing is critically sharp, and the tonal range is short of including maximum highlights. However, adjusting these would spoil the overall effect - as you may well have known perfectly well when you posted the shot.

Two things strike me as meriting sorting. First, it looks as if there's a slight tilt to the left. I've done a mod, rotating the shot by one degree, and it looks straighter, to my eye.

Second, there are some marks on the water in the foreground. I'd guess they were bits of stuff floating on the water (there aren't any in the sky, so they probably aren't dust bunnies on your sensor...) In my mod, I've cloned them out, as they distract the eye just as if they were dust bunnies!

You've also got quite strong fall-off to the corners - this can be the result of poor lens coverage, or the wrong sort of lens hood - but more probably, you've deliberately burned in the corners - often a good idea to prevent the viewer's eye floating away out of the frame.

I'd say this all works well, and you've doen a good job.

No problem, Keith - it's what other members are here for.

I always try to say soemthing useful: I hope it was!

Should have included in the above - in rotating and cropping (to avolid four white triangles in the frame) I've truncated the reflection of the trees on the left. I think it matters, compositionally, to have the full reflection in the shot, at least for the very best result.

I hope this won't put you off asking for critique!
