Met up with Phil,Cole and Geoff at Llangorse yesterday morning for first light.The boys stopped off there on their way to Elan Valley.Good to see you all again.
This shot was taken about 5 minutes after they left.The Sun decided to make a brief appearance so I made the most of the opportunity.
Enjoy your Sunday and thanks for looking.

Lovely colours and a pleasing image, but may have been better still if you could've got the whole of the reflection of the boat in the frame IMHO.

I couldn't Sue as this was the furthest I could get it from the jetty.It was either that or letting the boat go and the owner would not have been a happy chappy.

Nice shot. I too find myself wanting the rest of the reflection. Also a half step to the left would have got the boat absolutely symmetrical. But that's just my obsession Wink

I dont mind the half reflection, I think you could even crop a bit tighter since you don't get all of it in.
I think the composition is haltering a bit. Without being being able to suggest a good change. It is something about the boat viewed so straigt on. And the half tree on the left. Hm. Maybe if you cropped the blue sky it would frame the picture better?
But that said it is still a lovely shot!

The image is a great one Tom i must say. The fact that you couldn't get the full reflection of the boat is not ideal but ts only a minor niggle.

The colour and compositon is fab anyway.
