Super capture Diane, leave the diagonal in, it shows it is a lake, take it out and it will look as if you are in a boat on the sea.

I do agree with your thoughts Diane! The composition would be better without the foreground dark area, the golden light reflected on the water makes great foreground interest, but the stunning light from the sky is the main focus here, a very beautiful capture.

have a good weekend.

Trev.

Why not take the water out and leave the dark patch.......

What super water made possible because of the sun being behind that cloud. Perhaps take out that darkpatch but play around with it on your computer and see what is best for your eyes.

Leave it in, take it out, all a matter of personal taste. I rather like it in but it is up to you. The most magical parts of this image are those wonderful beams, the rim lit cloud and the sparkling water.

The dark diagonal in the foreground is fine in my eyes just goes to show we all like different things and that's a good thing, amazing light with nice reflections, the wonderful beams, the lit cloud and the sparkling water are a joy to see. nice one

WOW. Awesome capture Smile I'm glad you left the diagonal in. For one thing, it gives the shot a clearer sense of place and context. Second, you would've lost some of that lovely light in the water had you cropped.
