    Default Quiet Water

    I had to pull over on my way to work.

    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.

    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
    I welcome all critique and comments on any of my photos

    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.

    Perfect title, and great shot.

    Both beautiful Bambi. Love the reflection in #2, and agree 100% with Marko's comments.
    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!

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