Hi guys

Took this shot a cou0ple of weeks ago, its of a small cottswold village called Bredon in Gloucestershire. Under normal circumstances the water wouldn't be present, as the foreground is just a meadow.

However in recent years this area is now prone to flooding, possibly a result of climate change. This year the water was about 6m away from my flat! :roll:

Comments and critique more than welcome

Cheers, Matt.

Matt, as a matter of fact, I am used to seeingsome sort of merit in your shots.In this one I like the reflections on the water which seem to concern you! Well, toaccentuate theoverall moody atmosphere of the image, I simply converted the image into grayscale, applied some deep yellow filter andincreased the contrast...Hope you don't mind aboutthis version
