Canon 40D, 100-400L at 100mm
f/5.0, 1/250sec, ISO 400, Partial metering
Flash fire in compulsory mode because of overcast.
Converted to B&W in CS3.
C&C welcomed as I am not a landscape photographer and this may not even belong here! :)

Pretty cool concept. I'd wish for smoother water at the lower edge for the reflections.

That does seem to be the main problem Jim, I guess I coupd crop it out?

I like the thought process here Bill, the use of flash is a good idea (I do that more often now) and the B&W conversion suited to this style of image. The reflection is the problem as it is not clean.

Thanks Robert, I was leaving this site and looked back and said, I need to come back with my wide-angle and get this again. Problem is it will be sunny and not the same effect. Later I Hope will produce a better image!

I really like the top 2/3 of the image and your b&w conversion is well done. When you return I would look for a different angle that will allow the reflection to be cleaner, and I think you'll have a really great landscape image!
