exposures good, colors are good, sharp.. i just wish there was something on the water like a boat or something... this would give the eyes a natural resting place..

Not on this river channel is too shallow! A few canoe's or john boats is about all you'll see there. Got this one but I didn't think it was that good.

the first is much better.. the reflections on the 2nd shot are too hot and are distracting..

The first is nice picture and something on the water say a boat would have enhanced it. I like the composition particularly the leading banks on each side of the river. Did you use a polarizer?

Kind regards.

Patrick.

The first one really is a good shot,nice subtle reflections (trees and sky).perhaps you could put something in the background,you know,just to finish it off?

Patrick, I used a Cokin A-series # 164 polorized filter stacked with a Cokin A-series #120 gradual gray filter. Dustin, I agree with you and the others that the first one is better. As far as adding something to it, I'd rather not. This spot is within a few miles of the house and there may be something or someone there the next time I pass that way. Being rural and remote from any population center that may take awhile. I'll keep trying. Thanks for all your comments and suggestions as they are the reason for my posts.
