Brilliant water smooth effect the green stants out well so it makes the over all picture brighter it looks like you have cropped a small bit of the right you might not have but i think it maby would look better with more in the shot but you may have cropped for a reason or held you camera on its side when you took the picture, over all well done great shot

Thank you for your very helpful comments and the feedback critque was so fast.
No Problem let me know if the critique is aproved
I like your picture of Shaugh Bridge very much Diane, it captures the essence of Devon very well.
My only critique is that it needs a little more contrast to bring it alive. I have made a mod for you in which I used PS to enhance the colours. I used: image,adjustments,brightness/contrast to improve the pic.
Hope you approve.
Hi f8 i do agree bringing the contrast up has given the photo a bit more punch thanks for the helpful comments and i am pleased you like the photo
A nice restful shot of it's type. I would have darkened the top half a little with the burning in tool and then lifted the contrast a bit. Good though, in general, and the water looks fine - I get a bit fed up with the blurry water shots, but this one doesn't over do it.
Thanks Paul i will try and darken the top a little
It's definitely a pleasing scene, restful on the eye. I'm not sure about the inclusion of the grass at the bottom of the picture; I don't feel it adds anything so personally I would crop it out.
On a more general note, I suspect that photos of rivers and streams, when they include a drop in height as this one does, are likely to be more appealing when the view is upstream with the water flowing towards the viewer, rather than downstream, as is the case here. The reason is that you can then see more of the detail of the little cascades, which are a useful element in the composition.
Thank you for your comments i was wondering about the grass at the bottom of pic
