I love your previous upload from this location as the light was wonderful and the composition exquisite with the path leading you right out into the distance. I'm not sure about this one though, the sky and reflections on the water look too heavy. If this had been by any lesser photographer I would have thought it over graded but with somebody as talented as yourself I very much doubt that is the case and I'm assuming that's just how it was but the light is certainly much more flattering in the previous image. To my eyes at least the composition in this image is also much weaker. In all fairness if I hadn't seen the previous image I'd probably like it a lot more but when compared to that image I just don't think it's as strong. Hope that doesn't sound over critical, it's just my observations/thoughts that's all Smile

Quote:the sky and reflections on the water look too heavy.

Could be Den, probably down to one of three things. It was like this, I balls the exposure up or because I processed it on my uncalibrated laptop when the previous was done on my home calibrated PC. I'll plumb for the second option.....

It was in the previous, much closer to sunrise when the light was softer.


Quote:To my eyes at least the composition in this image is also much weaker.

Quite subjective composition, I would assume most folk would prefer the previous as it it fairly conventional in approach however, I actually equally like this one or may even prefer it, I quite like that it is left side heavy.

Cheers Den and all,

I like the composition here John. It leads through well and the light looks soft and warm.
