    Hi Terry

    Happy new year. This is a pretty nice image of a pretty common subject.. I think you have captured well the grandeur of the scene and the boat gives a nice sense of scale. Well done. I would have preferred to see the image wider if possible, so all the river and shoreline vegetation formed a continuous arc. It has obviously been cropped to square, maybe you have image available to re-crop??... A polarizing filter would also make the colours pop a bit more and help with the reflection off the water bottom of screen... Finally, the distant ridgeline has a faint halo which may be a result of masking.. If so a bit more feathering of the mask could eliminate this.. Would like to hear your thoughts on my image..

    Don

    I agree with Don's suggestions for improvement. Did you use a Shadow/Highlight adjustment on this scene? It looks as though you may have and perhaps a heavy handed use of it which has created a rather flat scene that is lacking contrast to really make it pop.

    Andrew, I did use a filter, however, I reduced the contrast as it seemed rather harsh to me. I will review the image further and may reprocess the image leaving the contrast as it was. If I do, I will repost,

    Thanks for your input...
