A superb image, but I would have cloned out the blue and the burnt out bit in the sky. Otherwise, well done!

Nice,but IMHO you could have made more of this lovely capture in your processing..

This is a fantastic shot - I love the 'stella' quality - the leaves/detritus in the lake look like stardust - and the beautiful cloud formations are stunning and the darkening sky alos adds to the outer-space feel. The image is nicely balanced with the 1/3 horizon point (although just a hint that it is not quite 'plumb'). As for the flare - well it was a brave shot into the sun - did you have a lens hood?

Best wishes

There have been a couple of recent threads about whether it's "acceptable" to include burnt - out areas of bright sun in a shot. Personallly I don't mind it, as long as it's depicting a bright harsh sunny day where the sun does glare in your eyes.

The problem I have with this is that the HDR effect has made the rest of the picture look like the conditions were less than that, so there's a bit of a misfit.. that's just my thoughts on it.

I love the clouds (as a devoted cloudy Smile ) and the technique has worked well on these.

The spot of blue flare? that's a personal thing - I'd prefer it wasn't there but hey! that's jus me..

I agree it's a tiny, tiny bit off plumb but easily fixed. Comositionally I might have preferred just a tiny bit more space below the tip of the tree's reflection at the bottom...but that's really nitpicking..


Hope there's some use in that, just my thoughts
