    If the stepping stones themselves were the specific intent I'd lose some foreground - up to just below the midstream rock (I like 16:9 as a ratio)

    Biggest problem for me is the very light top half, with lots of burnout. With scenes like that you really need a grad on the top, but you should be able to recover more in raw processing. I wouldn't attempt a shot like that in jpeg. I have tried to show what it looks like with the top brought down, but detail is gone in places. Also from a personal style POV, I like the left foreground hump with more shadow camera side to hold the whole thing in.

    Believe it or not, I actually had a grad filter on when shooting, obviously not strong enough.

    I think you'd probably have to take two exposures and montage them if detail is not recoverable in raw.
