Nice - suites me. Can see Frank's point, but the technical quality is superb.

I'm inclined to agree with the comments of Frank.

Technicaly excellent.
The jury's out on the position of the horizon. I quite like the way the texture of the grassy stuff in the foreground offsets the opposing relatively clear sky.
I'm inclined to agree that the rock needs to go though.

I find the overall composition fairly satisfying and I do agree with the others re. the f/g rock. I would also like to have seen the tips of the grasses not cutting across the reflection of the mountain top, as this would have enhanced the sense of distance between the f/g and b/g. Perhaps a small point, but one which I feel would have enhanced the final image considerably.

Thanks for the comments. I know it's a subjective matter, but I tend not to be too dogmatic about RoT where shots have significant reflections. Ignoring the shore line, there can be strong thirds already there, i.e. (1) the foreground, (2) the background + reflection taken together and (3) the sky. I take the point on the f/g rock. If I had extended the tripod legs I may have been able to leave it out the shot altogether - this would also have sorted Ronnie's point re the grass tips overlapping with the hilltop reflection.
Maybe I'll go back there on a clear, calm day and try again!!
