I'd be tempted to crop just below the sun though, on looking at it again?

Is that really how the sky was Jon, almost as though a beam of light is about to descend on the boat !

Yes v1 on this monitor at work!

Caleb, the sky was basically like that-however it is HDR'd so there is a bit of enhancement going on here! And it did rain on and off all day.

Thanks for all the comments.

Excellent Jon V1 all the way for me. I like the composition and would not crop anything

I must admit, I like the bright orange 'hole' at the top, a great contrast with the tranquil scene below. I understand where Joan and Paul are coming from.

blinking heck Jon. This is like a sci-fi move and not just the HDR element.

What a unique version of the lakes. Are you sure it wasn't Loch Ness with Nessie beaming up to her ship?

I like all versions but would personally probably have gon for 3 but with a bit more oomph in the sky as I'm not a HDR kinda guy. You've used it magnificently here though!
