    Well this is unusual for me as it is in summer but the forecast was for light winds and I was off work anyway so I went out and was pretty much on my own

    Lose a bit off the bottom. Try 16:9 aspect. Lovely light on the land, it is just too much not so interesting foreground for me.

    Lovely new take on a very familiar subject. Can see why you want 50/50, but think I'd have a bit off the bottom too.

    Like others I've seen (and taken) this shot dozens of times - in fact I've helped make the tripod holes that you must have used.

    HOWEVER you have got some of the nicest light I've seen in the scene - and light is what it's all about. Very nice indeed.
    Like others I'd chop off some of the bottom.

    Yep. Buttermere pines are all about light.

    I like it as it is and wasn't convinced about losing some off the bottom but having just tried it I feel it is stronger, I took it to just where the reflection of the left hand mountain meets the edge...

    The light was spot on though...:cool:
