    I very rarely go to other sites like TPF, but sometime in the past week or two I was browsing some other photo site (don't even remember where) but maybe that's where I've seen this photo before?

    I really, really like this image. It belongs on the wall of a retail outlet like BassPro Shops or something like that. I design environmental graphics and rarely run across decent images for branding retail interiors, but this just has that feel to me. Imagine this images as a 10 foot high by 30 foot wide wall! Awesome!

    But... I placed a piece of paper just below the blue of the sky and actually like it better without the sky. You may look at it and think "the sky's got to be there", but give it a shot and you may agree. The sharpness and contrast of the water and trees is very nice!

    Have I seen it before? Or am I going nuts?

    I agree with this completely. Great image!

    Might be just a tad over-sharpened for my taste, but still an awesome image.

    Hmmm... I'll have to look into the crop suggestion. Yes you might have seen it in the Landscape and Nature forum, but I have since removed it since I don't comments on them there for some reason.

    Thanks Ian

    Tad oversharpened eh? I'll look into that when I have a chance to edit the picture. Thanks for the comment... Any and all comments are welcome.

    That's an awesome picture.

    I would love to do something like that, someday. Where's that at?

    Quality shot! I'm torn between the current crop of the image, and a shorter crop. 50/50 on this one mate.
