I find this a little surreal but it appeals to me for some reason. Comments welcome as always . . .

i can see the appeal hear, nice formalistic lines against soft nature scene. i think you captured it well, good color and detail and i like the angle of the railing.

Thanks dudes. I really like this for some unknown reason and wondered whether it had appeal to anyone else.

Syd,I like this a lot. Nice colours and compostion. As Julie said, I like the lines of the railing in stark contrast to the setting. I think this is one of yournicest submissions to date - more interesting than office windows:G

Have you tried it in B&W - could be quite nice with heavy contrasts.

PS - I like the way you tried to centrethe converging lines of the river and horizonin the middle top frame of the railing - clever. Just a little more centred would be great.

Syd,

First off great original picture, that is until the Microsoft guys got their hands on it. Loved the colors and composition on the picture.Nice reflections too.

Thanks for the glowing comments Steve & LT. I have been playing around with this image trying to lighten the foreground and frame a little without blowing out the sky.

Here's a rough edit to show what I mean. I like this pic' so may try getting it just right.

I should also start charging Microsoft advertising space.

Thanks dudes.

I like the edit Syd (yours:G) from a colour / contrast point of view but I think technically its a bit blown out especially the trees on the right.
