I absolutely adore the colours in the treeline. Fantastic.

Also, The jetty leading into the frame is a good lead in. If i could change anything slightly i might reframe it with a little less tree in the left hand side although that is probably impossible to do unless you had a very big shovel or carry a chainsaw in your camera bag Smile

Hi William,

If you don't mind me saying this is one of the best in you pf. You've captured some good colours and I understand what you were after with the jetty, although I do agree with ams99 about the trees. Have another look at the images on here with this kind of thing running in a more centrally placed position, there normally balanced on both side with similar detail, ie, water both sides etc. This Image in my opinion would work a touch better if the jetty was placed more to the left, a simple thing like a slight twist to the right before taking the shot would have achieved this. Here's a scenario for you, you take me to this lake to show me the view, now, do you want me to look at the trees on the left or are you showing me the lake with a very little obstructed view Wink . William, a good tip when taking scenic images is to look all round and decide if someone was with you what would you want them to see? this is your shot. (see mod)

All that said, it's still in my opinion one of your best, well done.

Take care

Martin

hi,
its a nice scene indeed but i agree above the overall scene as presented is too complex.
as i see view on screen, im guessing that its probably taken with the wide setting on your lens from eye height and that makes it an average position. less is often more and i think a little more consideration to what you consider to be the most pictorial aspects within the scene wuld enable you to strip down the image to a more direct and striking composition.

the far bank and reflections are lovely and the jetty adds foreground lead in but the area on the left side is pretty heavy in comparison to the rest of the scene and that creates an inbalance that makes viewing difficult.

i can see many smaller scenes within the picture and i would suggest that you stand in front of any scene and strip it down to more graphic shapes, zoom in or out, move lower or higher. perhaps a lower view point would make the foreground link to the distance by moving the jetting front higher in the frame, this with a move to the left side to eliminate the dark area. doing so would also take you away from the white clouds that are struggling to hold detail without the use of graduated filters.

still quite nice
Phil
