Nice shot. Well composed and good colours. I cant really give off about frames and text etc coz I use them myself Smile but I do feel the text here is a wee bit big.

Really great! Looking at your gallery, I see some nice work. Would like to see more, much more! The only thing I can think of to improve this shot would be to have the slightest bit more of the building in the reflected area. I know it only lacks the light to be complete, but the effect is it feels cut off.--Chris

Truly marvellous picture I agree with rjvc but then again you should see some of my frames and texts(theyre not all as good as this) Smile Harvey

Beautiful shot Steve, I love reflections on the water

Thanks so much for your comments..

To pacificphoto: Before cropping, the picture did actually show the lower light. However, (and you would agree if you saw it), that light actually pulled the attention away from the rest of the picture and so I saw little choice but to remove it. Admittedly it is unfortunate, but there seems little I can do about it now Smile

rjvc: Ok, thanks for the comments - I must confess I'm a 'noob' with all that border and text nonsense. My wife and I sat here for hours trying to find a decent font etc and that was what we ended up with. I'll certainly try making it smaller.

High tide on the Dart, lovely shot,love those reflections.

Have to agree with Chris. Another half an inch to the bottom of the frame would make a huge difference. Very nice, though.

How about trying this (making it up as I go). Put the light back in, then get out your handy cloning tool. Lower your opacity to about 10 percent, and clone some of the surrounding water around. Maybe it'll tone the light down enough to give us a sense of symnetry, yet not steal the show.--Chris
