Nice scene and nicely done but looks like it needs a little bit of clockwise rotation to 'level it up'. However still gets my click.

Nice location and a good shot.
Agree on the need for clockwise rotation, but good all the same.

Love this.....the clear water, the reflections, the colours of the stones and mountains, the overhanging tree and the general composition.

The stillness in the water adds a real vibrancy to this.

Many thanks for your interest & for all c&C.

Richard & Doug, thanks for pointing out the need for leveling, I prepared this in a bit of a hurry & never gave it a thought. Mind you, I'm not sure what to use as a reference, since there is no horizon nor man-made clues. Perhaps the ripples on the beck might do the trick.

Quite excellent John.
Further to levelling: might I suggest that the vertical shadow
in the centre may be a good refewrence point, However, we are surely clutching at straws here, because it is really great as it is!!

Thanks, Roger, perhaps that could be a clue, I do find some shots very difficult to judge. I just ordered a cheap panoramic tripod attachment with a bubble level from 7dayshop. That could be the answer, but I'm sure some people would still have their own ideas Wink
