At least he's not trolling for bodies Wink

Great shot, like the warm brown colors, and super control with that lens considering you were on a bike.

Thanks folks. The colour is slightly saturated, but basically as shot (about 2 hours before sunset).

The canoeist gives a good sense of scale, like the colours/lighting.

Good that you've included the foreground grasses as a base line. Great use of vertical format, which I reckon gives much more interesting landscapes!

Plenty of detail in this, but no trace of shake that I can detect!

Stunning composition / scenery.

John - this is pretty sharp for a 'shaky telephoto' - great pic. I agree with mrswoolybill - the foreground grasses work well.

Thanks again! Smile. To be honest, there was a slight 'motion blur' due to camera shake, which I tried to neutralise during sharpening using PS's 'intelligent sharpen' option. I guess, from the comments, that it worked. I do wish there were a little more grass visible, but some is better than none. Thanks again for your interest.
