Taken whilst on a photographic recce with the Bolemeister (Bolebrown). This a stretch of the Kennett and Avon canal at Honey Street. Needless to say the photo expedition was not very successful.
Thanks for looking.
A pleasing image, my thoughts to alter it.
It would be nice to have a bit more sky over the house, it looks a bit trapped. Also you could clone out the bits of tree/bush just creeping into the cloud at the right. My last temptation would be to select the water and see if I could make it a bit less murky by playing with the Hue & saturation or levels.

Lovely scene Matt, nice reflections,
I do agree about the house looking crammed in and the tree to the right but otherwise it's a lovely little pic. The recce wasn't a total waste of time as this little place has lots of potential,
Nicely done .. lovely image
Some wonderful bright colours to this lovely peaceful scene.
Beautifully captured and presented Matt..
the reflections of the the house are superb !!!
Thank you for you kind words..
nice shooting. i too agree with strawmans suggestions but you should be happy with this.
A post card quality image.
Good suggestions above, but I like the reflections and perpsective
Nice shapes in the reflections of the brickwork here Matt.
You have cooked your goose with this shot Mr Brown Senior. It wasn't a sucessful trip was it. It would have been better for me if had remembered my camera.
Even accepting the strictures above this has a lot going for it, Matt. The stray branches are easily disposed of; they don't distract wildly from the composition (good perspective) or the colour composition (the red barge balancing the much larger but muted building). But overall it's the tranquillity that counts.
I do agree that this needs a bit more sky but only a tiny amount, the interest here for me is the way the reflection and the canal bank draw the eye down, and then diagonally across. Height is less important.
Thanks for your comments Guys, I can see your point about the house being crammed in, as for the murky water it was my intention to leave it that way I think nice clear water in a canal would just look wrong. Thanks again for your suggestions they are as always much appreciated.
A classic image. Real colours and sky. Well taken.
Nice cheery colourful view Matt, not too far from home either!
super comp, colors and tones Matt, good sky too.
Lovely reflection and plenty of interest. - gary
I agree with your comments about the canal Matt.You do not see many crystal clear water ones.The muckier the better for me!!! Nice image.
Great perspective and loads of interesting things to see. Is that the real name of the street?
