I thought I'd share this one as my first post to this list. Neither my best nor my worst picture: more like one I can't quite make my mind up about. Is it too blue? I underexposed the image by a couple of stops to get the sky more or less correct, then stitched the image up from 6 exposures to make one high-res image. There's no photoshop trickery; other than some levels adjustment and a little cropping. Any thoughts welcome!

Thanks! Yes the mirror is good there: the pool is very shallow for the most part, and for some reson I've always found shallow pools to give the most dramatic reflections.

Regards, John.

Like it very much, but you shouled cut a bit of the bottum, so you get rid of the metal things.

That was one of the things I was undecided about: if I crop the grill out then I also loose part of the reflected-tree, and I wanted to retain all of it if I could. I also quite like the idea of having something down there to help frame the picture, but of course a metal grill is far from ideal. Maybe I should just clone a rock in there or something :-)

Regards, John

Hi John, I think it is an excellent shot, and would leave it as is, even with the "metal" thing, it seems to complete the pic at the bottom [like a bottom frame]. Initially I thought the sky was overexposed [maybe still is a little] but when viewed as a whole, it contrasts nicely with the darker reflection in the water. Nice work !!

Great shot John. Love the setting. I do have to agree with Silent though, something has to be done with that metal grid, be it crop or clone something else in. It doesn't quite fit with the rustic scene.
