An image of the highest order, sublime qualities. The colour, light and reflections working in perfect harmony.

A very nice scene with amazing light. Very nice color and saturation. I do find the very bright portion of the sky a little distracting. Cropping the very top portion of the sky may solve this though. the by product may be that you lose some of that dramatic sky. Tough call, but an amazing capture for sure.

Great timing and PoV. I agree with BJ's comment on the sky. The rest of the image looks great with warmth and depth but that bright bit of sky has to go! I'd be tempted to clone it out using all the other fine looking parts of the sky around about because cropping would spoil the proportions of this image. Smile

Dont clone. use the lasso tool to copy a random section of cloud, copy it and paste it over the bright area. Use the MOVE tool to drag to copy over the bright area. Clean up edges with cloning.

Looks like an excellent suggestion from banehawi. Glorious compostion and capture of a beautiful looking scene. The removal of the too bright section should make this an even better image.

Super work indeed. I do agree with BJ above that cropping that bright area in the sky strengthens the image..or clone in some of the sky to avoid losing any of the image.

Happy New Year!
