This is nicely composed shot of an interesting subject. The fallen leaves in the foreground add wonderful colour and the muted trees in the background add interest there without being distracting. The main tree's a bit dark but I'm not sure there's a lot you could do about that, short of a generator truck and a set of stage lights. Wink

A couple of little tweaks that would make the composition even better Including just a little bit more to the right hand side would give a continuous sweep of shoreline from the foreground right through to the horizon, helping to draw the eye through the shot. The far shoreline isn't quite level and, even though it isn't a true horizon, it looks rather like one. It's so close to being level that my eye, at least, thinks it ought to be and decides that, since it's sloping, the camera wasn't quite straight. Rotating the image anti-clockwise a couple of degrees would avoid this.

This is a beauty Luis! Your composition is excellent and the tones and colours are beautifully rendered. I agree about the slight horizon issue, but I think you've got enough of the shoreline sweep on the right to get away with it as it is.

CHeers, Goggz
