    Would it work better if the sky/lake would be correctly exposed and the tree shadows would be underexposed!?
    Maybe...

    Thanks for the comments! The focus for me is the trees and greens which is why I exposed them properly rather than the lake. The sun was rising on the left side of the lake and the sky was mostly grey/white which I think is why the lake looks that way. Without waiting until later in the day I don't know if it could be avoided. Here's a shot I took on the same day directly facing the sunrise for the A Day in the Life of the World assignment.

    i really like it but i think that the dock in between the trees is a little distracting, although nothing you could do about it. i really like the shadows blending into the bottom of the tree.

    Thanks Apex! I like to think of the dock with the benches as representing the laid back lakeside living lifestyle... :sillysmi:

    A polarizing lens will take the glare off of the water and produce a better exposed photograph. You were right to expose for the trees.

    Thanks for the comment Judge! I've been considering buying some filters for my cam, it's digital but it's not a DSLR, and while it can use filters, I'm not sure I want to purchase accessories as I may get the idea at some point to upgrade to a DSLR. :sillysmi:

    I agree, the trees are beautiful...something serene about them.
