Beautiful light through the trees. A lovely capture with good detail in the reflections too. I'd take off the tiny bit of detail top left, but that's only a small point. Personally I would crop about a quarter off the left so that the eye goes to the edge of the triangle of light to the left of the tree.
Nice atmospheric shot, superb light. Well taken.
I like the atmosphere and lighting of the shot. I agree that i would remove the detail in the top left. I also find the tree at the top right of the shot distracting. Perhaps croping this and the rocks at the bottom of the shot may impove the compersition.
Only one point of criticism... I can't vote!
well done here my friend
Lovely shafts of light. Don't know whether it would have been possible, but I would have been tempted to try and get the camera down to water level, and capture a mirror image of the reflections as well!
edit: and then try a landscape photo, perhaps?
agree about the crop off the top
A nice shot Simon, - youve captured a really nice evening scene.
Theres a couple of elements in this that could be focal points; the reflection of the tree at the bottom is one, and then the light through the mist at the bend of the path is another.
I notice youve used a portrait format for this, - and I assume you were trying to include the foreground rock as an entry into the shot?
I think this time the rock is so small its not significant, and theres more than enough in there to draw the eye.
For me it depends on which element you want to feature, - which would determine how you would crop it, - and Ive loaded 3 options. The strongest element that can draw the eye in is the path leading in from the right imo, and if you were to shoot this again, perhaps a landscape format using this would be worth a try.
Otherwise, Ive done some simple tweaks, - increased contrast, sharpened, lifted foreground shadows, and removed a little pice of greenery top left.
I hope you find this helpful,
As a complete novice, I can't comment on the curves, tone etc, but personnaly I love the original picture with the rock, water and the light from the top of the trees actually draws my eye to the path/light and for me, a perfect spot where i can see myself sitting on the rock enjoying the view. Any clues on location please?
Thank you for the encouraging comments and advice. There is a lot of food for thought there which will make me think long and hard.
The location is the Basingstoke Canal in Surrey.
You have the light , and a wonderful golden center, With good reflection in the foreground....I love it, Simon just put it in for a vote,
That's a great image
