Nice winter scene Ed.

Have done a mod for you. Cropped the left side off at the end of the bridge as it was dead space. Cropped the sky down to remove the over exposed sky, this brings the boathouse and bridge nicely onto the line of thirds and finally a tweak in curves just liven things up a bit.

I actually prefer the original showing the full bridge, & the only tweak I would try is to level slightly anti-clockwise, but I dont know how to modify someone elses photo so cant try it myself. Ray.

A very nice scene, Ed, and a good record of conditions on the Day. I have to say Robin's mod is rather good......gave me a good old laugh.

I agree with Ray a little tweak on the horizon is all this really needs I love it - its the fence in the b/g gives it away re straightening the horizon but having said this is could be a figment of the imagination due to the pov you have taken the pic at because the trees are straight - well done a wonderful chocolate box image
BTW I like your mods

I like the scene and how you've composed it Ed, too bad about the blown sky, but with a P&S there's not much you can do about that, don't see any need for levelling!

A very nice scene Ed and well captured you could bring possibly back a wee bit of detail in the sky using layers - but still a cracking picture and I like it as is
