i like the intersecting diagnal lines with the lake in the background.. but it seems pretty soft.. not enough dof? too slow of shutter speed? no USM? can't really tell the culprit from a shot this size.. i also think a bit of saturation and contrast boost would be helpul to negate some of the effects of the haze..

Takes me back a bit that shot Alex. I can almost smell the market.

Dustin's given some good advice there, even if he can't spell diagonal.

it's a nice shot, i agree with dustin- nicely composed but a little soft. has a painterly feel to it, so maybe with a little tweaking it could be even better?
