Taken at the end of yesterdays McFade Training Discover Wensleydale workshop.

Everyone was getting a little cold and wandered back towards the car... I said that the light would return, and indeed it did - so they all ran back to the banks of Semerwater to get a few last shots.

Ice and water and rock and sky... nice mix

Tranquility Smile Lovely bit of FG ice on the diagonal which suits the rest of the arrangement. The trio of rocks lead into the lovely light. My only other comment would be the golden light on the water is much more saturated than in the sky which may be natural but stands out slightly in this day when we fool the eye using ND grads to equalise things. The rest of the sky is perfectly balanced however, so it is but a minor point. Smile

I like this, but I think it would be more "inviting" if it was flipped horizontally, so that the ice went from left-to-right. It's somehow easier on the eye that way, at least to me. Tried a quick mod and in fact I find it easier to "move around" the image when the image is flipped horizontally.

Regardless, it's a splendid scene and I like it whichever way it's presented. Well taken!

The sky is darker than it's own reflection, which technically is complete nonsense- light loss in the denser medium means the reverse is always the case. Use your eyes.

sky's dark because of a vignette added in post... it's a big, soft vignette and it covers most of the sky

Fair enough. Didn't realize you actually wanted it to look wrong. ( Mind you, this is the pan calling the kettle, because I've done the same thing myself....). No offence.
