little Langdale Tarn
taken in the lake district in november.
I was down by the waters edge an old farmer, he looked about 70, can down on a quad bike and ever so gently thew me out of his field, saying 'I am going to have to ask you to leave otherwise everybody will be coming down here'. I took this shot resting on the gate post as he closed the gate behind us.A beautiful peaceful day.

I'd just like to say it's a stunning picture. I'm not competent enough myself to critique anyone's work, but I know a good photograph when I see one!

I like the smoke and the weak light - you can almost taste the frosty air! The reflections work well to add some depth. I'd maybe try cropping off the green at the very bottom as I find it a bit distracting.

Hi, this is a nice shot, couple of pointers ... id be tempted to crop out some of the foreground (and maybe a touch off the top), the reason being that it is a touch distracting, and doesnt really add anything to the composition. Would have been nice if you could have got in a bit closer at the time of shooting to increase the size of the buildings ever so slightly in the composition ... hope this helps. Dan

Hi Harry,

No wonder the farmer thought your pic would bring people to his field - its lovely - full of mystery and rich autumn colours. I wouldn't crop this pic at all - I think the bright green at the bottom provides an excellent foil for the for the orangy browns and brings out the duller greens further up the pic - well done.

I'm not experienced enough to criticize, if I was, I can find no fault in it. It's absolutely stunning!

There's a great lighting quality in this and the cottage is exactly where it should be on the thirds. I'm a sucker for the atmosphere smoke adds and it works well here.
Where the picture falls down is the bright arc of grass in the foreground....draws your eye away from the main interest.....I'd darken it right down or cover it with water using the clone stamp tool.

Good mist and good light, my only niggle as said above is the foreground!! It needs cropping out as it slightly ruins what is a cracking picture..

This is just beautiful - like a painting. I like it as is, but agree that the foreground is maybe a little distracting.
