There is always so much to appreciate in your landscapes, Keith, and many could learn a thing or two by studying them: here the boulders on the river bank draw the eye into the scene, to the bridge with the characteristic form of the Pikes in the distance.
Exposure so well controlled too, with nice detail showing in the more shadowed areas of the image.
An image I'd have been happy to have found and captured myself.

A low pov and excellent lead in along the rocks, Keith. The light on the Pikes pulls you under the bridge and on into the distance. Lovely composition.

The path gives a good lead-in to the bridge and the mountains beyond

The portrait format takes so much in to admire
from the boulders and path leading us in to the bridge
and beyond to the Pikes.
I also love the reflections in that beautiful water.
Top notch.

Wow Nik, one of your best IMHO! Lighting is subtle and beautiful, the quadruple lead in very effective, the bridge very well modeled by the angle of the light and finally the illuminated mountain in the background really pulls your eye on. So much depth and interest arranged in a very pleasing way.
The only formative suggestion I can think of is to try losing the top 1/3-1/2 of the sky since I think the adjusted proportions make the FG and bridge even more powerful.
It's a superb piece of work, well done! Smile

My sincere thanks to Mark, Cliff, Tony & Alun for your UA's.........I appreciate your thoughts.....Ta muchly !!.Smile

Alan (Miles).......I've looked at your suggestion for cropping the top, & it works very well & creates a strong image...unfortunately it
also loses the tops of the LH trees which I prefer to retain !!........I'll have another look at this possibility when I get the time, & see
if I can incorporate those tree tops in a cropped version !!......thanks for your comments & idea....I'll see what transpires ??.Smile
