Well Eddie, I like the band of light on the field, but my eye rather see more of the lake with its reflections in the water. Almost to much scene and nothing to prevent my eyes from wandering. You as the photographer should dictate to the viewer where the eyes should go. Without establishing a main subject, that is kind of hard to do....

Hi Eddie, you've posted some lovely landscape shots in the past but sorry to say I find this one a little bland. The sky has nothing interesting going on and there is nothing to capture the eye.

I want to see more of the lake and reflections but we are too far back.

Ditto to the above. Would you mind posting a tighter crop? It really is a beautiful scene.

Jumping on the bandwagon here. I like the feel of the shot, but the lake just gets lost A tighter crop or a higher angle looking down on the lake a bit might and more focus to the lake.

Tuff crowd

I wuz in a hurry, just shot out the window.....has a call to go on. Having said that (excuse) I appreciate the advice of a higher view point, I can do.
Here is a zoomer and a tighter crop, perhaps it might earn me some wiggle room until I can earn your grace again



If not, perhaps all you really were after was taking me to the wood shed, and leaving your impression on my bee hind

Here is the shed.

I like the closer shot more, still the foreground is a little uninteresting but we are seeing more of the lake which is nice.

[email protected] the shed idea!!

I like the uncropped better. Even though my eyes wandered, there was at least enough there to look around at.
