Hi Joosie, in terms of wanted critique I would slightly rotate the image a degree or two clockwise because whilst it may be straight the waterline on the bank in the distance gives an ever so slight feeling of tilt .. and I would crop out the foliage at the bottom - leaving you with a cleaner more pano style shot and no distraction from the foliage that is there as a distraction but adds little. Nice scene .. I like how the outcrop on the mid left is highlighted by the sun.

Hi Joanne,

What a lovely scene and you'va managed to capture it quite well considering the bright sun and reflection. I see you have some foreground interest and as you said it is difficult light and a simple image.

I do think the image is very blue which is probably due to the white balance being fooled but a quick adjustment in Camera RAW or Lightroom will fix this. I also wonder if you have considered cropping this into a panoramic image as you have the horizon line a little too central for my liking. It makes the water too dominant in the image for me and the panoramic crop puts the horizon on the lower third.

I've uploaded a mod where I cropped the image as described above, adjusted the white balance, darkened the sky and lifted the darker areas slightly.

Hope this helps

Hello, Joanne. I am going to be different because I like the image as you have uploaded it. I like the sweep of light on the water and also the light area of cloud at the top right, which seems to balance the image and I feel it looks a bit too dark without that. The rules are there, and I can see their advantages, but sometimes they can be ignored. So I am not disagreeing with others' comments but just offering an alternative. In my modification, I just wanted to remove the intruding foliage from the bottom, and the bit of foreground tree on the left, to make a cleaner image, but I ended up making a few further adjustments, mainly highlights, shadows and contrast. In particular, I lightened the group of trees on the left.
Pamela.
