Very nice. Bit since I've been to Buttermere, but this brings home the tranquillity. Not been quite so keen on a couple of your recent shots, but back to the A1 stuff for me.

hello Mike.

I like the idea of having the picture flipped, the mountain and its reflection have created a pointing chevron to the right, introducing the rest of the scene. I was surprised that you used the end of the focal length (55mm) rather something around 45mm or 50mm to contain the foliage of the first tree on the left bottom, but then I realised it would have made the house look even smaller, - the trees look gigantic when compared to the house. I am not certain if a small crop of that tree from the left would have any positive contribution to the whole balance, it is a nice scene and a nice picture as it is now.

What I love about digital when you compare it with film is the convenience to enable you to try something new, of course the downside is a lot of times over doing it.
But then again you always have the EP comments to bring you back to earth.

errr... I must say that it is possible to print film from the other side as well;
I had one lab printing some prints the other way around, when I asked for more copies,
I remembered leaning over a landing boat differently than having seen on the print;
and of course the number of the boat was the other way around; if it was 88 I would have questioned my memory capacity.

Yes I use to give printing a go, but it got so bloody expensive, I would hate to think of the hours I spent in the dark-room and all I got of a BIN full of used printing paper.
It took me a while to work out the 88, (getting old)

Beautiful shot !!.....thought it looked a bit 'odd' till I read that you'd 'flipped' it.....lovely effect from the reflections !!

Dead right, Mike. That's what it's all about. Try something a bit different rather than the same old stuff all the time then test it to see what people think.

This is so beautiful, Mark.

I think the waterline needs to be perfectly central for a reflection image like this. It's only a fraction out.

I just cropped the top a little in my modification, then as an afterthought, did a little crop to the left side to remove the "something" in the top left, for a cleaner finish.

Hi Pamela,
Thanks for the mod, yes it gives it a nice crispier look to the photo.

A great image as it stands, but I don't actually like the waterline cutting the center of the frame.
I've posted a modification with the bottom 1/4 cut off, and a trim off the rh side to put the house in a stronger position
Hope you like it!
