I go back and forth on the crop of the one above. I sometimes think I should crop the top a bit but I like the tree top so any opinions would be appreciated. :shrug:

Wow - Stunning shots Bambi. That water is incredible.

Shot 1 - I understand your dilemma, I have just been holding up paper over my monitor, and cant decide either. The other option is a bit off the bottom or panoramic crop, but I can decide cant make up my mind about these either.

Shot 2- The sky and its reflection is amazing

Shot 1 imo should be cropped about 2 inches off the top...it's a good shot but it would lose big-time in a poker match against shot 2 which is Fab!

Some dodging (maybe 10%) of the reflected clouds in the water, in the bottom central area would make this sing even louder (and it's already singing :) )

Hope that may help

Yep... what he said. I think the first shot will work a lot better if the horizon is in the middle emphasizing the mirror effect. ie crop the top bit off.

Both beautiful Bambi. Love the reflection in #2, and agree 100% with Marko's comments.

Well, since it's all sorted out now, I'll just add beautiful shots, and I want the house. :)

right were I pulled over is the place to put your kayak in. People do it all the time.
