Not sure whether I love this or hate it? Seen so many pictures like this with "fuzzy water" that it kind of bores me. Nice composition but it has been a bit overdone. Nice shot though anyway.

I like it, Gary.

I would suggest that a little more punch would help considerably with the impact and drama.
Try a duplicate layer set to "multiply" blend mode at around 65% opacity. It will beef everything up without affecting the brightest parts.
Then use a low opacity (say 35%) soft brush with black on a layer mask to gently paint out where you don't want the effect.
It adds a bit of density and bite, to the benefit of the image, imo.
Worth a try, I think. You can always bin it if it doesn't suit your taste...Wink

Thanks for the comments . I'll try your technique Bill, nice to have a detailed suggestion. I actually liked the subtleness to this and was hoping it might look a little different to the norm. Sorry it bored you Staticanimation but it was my first attempt at trying a 10 stopper and I dont often get to do something different after all these years of clicking. Smile

a great composed capture, and good advice from bill on how to beef it up a little, i'm interested in getting the 10 stopper too, but it'll have to wait till i get the 10-20mm lens to fit it to.Smile
