Thank you to all the members who voted, left comments and awards on my last post.
This photograph was take in Cornwall before lock down.
When I take a picture I have it in my minds eye what it is going to look like. I take about 10 pictures of the subject from different angles. That is part 1. Then I move to part 2. Processing, I stir at each picture for 5 seconds, then close my eyes and imagine the finished picture. I teach Photoshop and other software so I know which techniques to use to get the look I want. Well it works for me:

I appreciate your "bit of info" about your pictures, it certainly explains why they are so good.
You have created oodles of atmosphere here in the cove, like a secret meeting place with a brooding sky and a lovely reflection of light on the water that leads through to the boat.

A lovely picture, and - i suspect - a lot of hard work and creative energy going into the atmosphere...
