    I think they are all lovely, the second and third especially

    Very nice. The first is the weakest in my view, having the sky reflection alone at the bottom is unbalancing.

    What great light. This may be a popular scene but these are more than a cut above average -especially the third.

    You used the conditions nicely Joel and came away with some lovely shots and I agree three is the best

    Three is the best. It avoids that bloody awfull white cottage!
    Seriously all are good.

    number 4, but crop off that foreground rock, and knock back the white cottage (it ain't cheating - we'd all be doing it in a darkroom:D)

    Then all that's left is the standard cliche, I think.

    Lovely shots. Would be chuffed to bits with any of them.

    [pedant]'tis a boathouse or a shed, not a cottage[/pedant]

    Agreed, but that tiny interruption in the top border bothers me, I'd crop it out retaining the rest.

    Number one is probably my favourite, followed by three, with Zou's suggestion with that slight crop on top.

    and what is that white spot on (I think) High Crag on the hillside above the cottage/boathouse.
    I suspect that some of us who have been there, have not had such wonderful conditions, and have not taken best advantage of the conditions we found are more than a little jealous!
    These are good. You might even get a few quid for them if you get them in a stock library.

    Hay Stacks. Not High Crag.

    Thank you very much!

    Thanks very much, I've seen quite a lot of reflection shots where the sky is included both as the sky, and as the reflection so I wanted to try something different for this shot and I like the way that it is, but I understand it's all a matter of opinion / interpretation.

    Thanks very much!

    That's a compliment indeed, tyvm!

    Thanks very much Alf. The conditions were stellar.

    Thank you... I actually like the cottage/boat house/whatever it is but I guess without it you would have a completely natural image.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! I actually cloned another rock out as it was in the way of the composition. I'll leave the main one :)

    Thanks very much, I am chuffed with all of them.

    Thanks!

    Thanks very much. I'm not actually sure what the white thing is, I'm interested to know now, must be an artifact of pp. I've never tried to sell any photos, nor as stock but I've just signed up to a few stock websites and sent them over for review. Hopefully they'll get accepted but I am not very knowledgeable about who best to send them to.
