The central placing of both stump and main cloud band seems to work well in this portrait format shot, Alan.
Despite that warmth in the cloud, the image just oozes cooooooool, and I guess it was pretty cold at the time.
The long exposure has smoothed the water giving a quite ethereal and mystical effect.

This is an excellent photograph with so much atmosphere.
This lighting and framing, and positioning of the hollow stump are superb.

chimmney producing psychadelic smoke..... pass the spliff, Al TongueGrin


The camera looks good in low light, lovely warm tones. Just a bit too dark still on the stump for me but I do like the smoothness on the clouds.

Ha ha, I should have known any 60's reference would have started you reminiscing about your teenage years Dave! Wink Thanks for your comments on the stump, I could brighten it up in post processing, my flashgun batteries were running low so the recharge time was about 15sec limiting how much light I could add. A useful lesson for my next low light shoot! I like the output from the 5d mk ii as well Grin

Good colour and I like the toning of the water. On my monitor the stump still looks a little dark, but that might be due to the quality of my work issue display.
I think I would have liked to see the shadow isolated within the boundary of the water or at least the image. At the moment it tends to run the eye out of the frame rather than lead it in. A small criticism but still a very nice image Alan.

I did try my head torch but it's no halogen beast and was pitifully weak in the ambient lighting! I'll keep experimenting with how much flash to add I think. Smile
Really great image.
