Dock tarn

By sheilac
There was a downpour on my way up to the tarn, but then the clouds started to clear. The resulting lighting and skyscapes were dramatic.

i do like this image
i also think a better image can be made
by cropping the image level with the centre rock up and to the right. it make's the tree the dominant feature and it's not
competing with the strong highlight's of the reeds try it see if you think it work's

Thanks Andrew, I see what you are saying about the reeds taking over. That makes me realise that the image has too much going on in it. I also have a portrait picture of the same view with more reeds in the foreground, but cutting out the ones on the left. I wanted to include the tree reflection, so kept the reeds in too.

Fine image of rare quality which takes the viewer on a small journey through it.

The eye is pulled into the reeds, progresses to the hills and comes around to the tree.

Lighting is good, subject subtle and composition exemplary, top stuff and a pleasure to view.
