nice shot with good composition, river leading nicely into the image. Only thing would be to consider lightening & bringing more detail & colour into the very dark area in the lower left of the pic as I find (for me) it's too dark & leads the eye out of the photo, if there is any detail or colour from the tree reflections in this area it would IMHO be a much stronger image.
Many thanks for the comments everyone, @Dougie60 it's only a few months ago I found out that they can be visible from the North of Northern Ireland as I always thought you could only see them up around the Arctic Circle (although I'm sure they are much more spectacular there!)
Aye Denny, for sports/action work (for me anyway) I prefer to control the shutter to give me panning blur or shallow dof on 'head-on' shots. more important in my opinion for this kind of subject, for close up or landscape stuff I would often (when I remember!) change to aperture priority to control the dof.
Cheers Denny, glad to hear you are well & getting out around the zoo, I have an annual pass for my local zoo & it is great exercise as it's on a quite steep hill! and try to get a wander round when the weather is suitable, still need to knuckle down to lose more weight/get fitter though . (must try to keep off the salt & vinegar crisps/chips though!!)
