    This has quite a realistic look. Do you do much processing?

    Quite nice, although, is your subject meant to be the lump of dirt on the bottom left? It seems that catches my eye the most, I'd suggest setting it so that the river is more in focus, but it's a very nice shot nonetheless.

    My first thought was 'Eliot Porter', one of my favorites. It falls right into his 'style', if that's the right word, of landscapes.

    And I kinda like the boulder -- it anchors the shot for me. Good eye.

    Thanks for the comments.

    There was a fair amount of processing--mostly local contrast adjustments.

    "I'd suggest setting it so that the river is more in focus...." Good point. At the time, I thought the trees branches should be in sharpest focus. I tried focussing manually but the light was low and my eyes are poor, so I gave up. I used autofocus and a long DOF. On a print, the focus is okay.
