The colors are really pretty .. needs a wee adjustment to the horizon line.

Agree with Tomororw; the image is at a bit of an angle. This is a scene just made for a Graduated Neutral Density filter. Your colours are good, with with a G-ND, the sky would have popped.

Thanks alot! I appreciate the feedback! Now a step further.. how would i touch up the horizon? Sometimes when i look at it I can see that it is a bit crooked, but the river turns to the left so i am not to sure how much of tat is an illusion..? I am kind of learning as i go tho cause i don't got much else haha. And filters... i asked in another post.. I have a CPL filter right now and i love it, makes a difference wut hthe autumn colors... what other kinds of filters are out there? What can they be used for? Which are the "staple" filters that one should have? Thanks!!

This is a tricky one because of the curve of the shore. I would use the levelling tool in which ever image-editing application you use and work to adjust the trees to vertical. That will make the image appear 'right' to the eye.
