Shot this yesterday on my way home from hunting eagles (for photographing). It was still about an hour and a half before sunset, but the sky had a reddish glow as the snow clouds filtered in from the northwest.....cheers........Don.

I like this a lot Don. If only that middle tree didn't break the strong line of the water's edge. Maybe a little cloning to make the tree a bit shorter?

Thanks Bahadir and Ollie. Ollie, I thought about cloning out that tree, but decided to keep it in. Tough job to remove it-at least for me. I have another where I zoomed in a bit to eliminate the trees. Do you think this works better?.....cheers.....Don

Ifind the foreground the trees provide to beanindispensable component of the scene adding dimension to it.Ollie's observation, on the other hand, isvery likelyto enhance it. I'd even suggest extending the height of thetree adjoiningthe frame on the left. But then, the result might look a bit too cute:)

Hi Don,

I think the trees add interest to the foreground. The large expanse of water looks a bit bland on its own. It's getting that balance between too much and too little trees that's always the tricky bit.

Cheers, Ollie

I prefer the second shot because the trees, while they add context, are also distracting. Good thing you took a zoomed in shot so you can satisfy everyone (including your own).
