    C&C per req:

    1. Nice composition, but you were a victim of the time of day. The strong reflected highlights and deep shadows are really detracting from the image. Shooting at a different time of day (early morning, later afternoon are generally the "nicest" light) and using a polarizing filter to eliminate the reflections and reduce the dynamic range would have greatly improved this image.

    2. Again a polarizer would have increased the contrast between cloud and sky and boosted the colour saturation of the foliage.

    The use of leading lines in both images is well executed, leading the eye right into the image, but there's no definite subject for it to rest on when it gets there.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your mileage may vary

    thanks for the input. I def. need a a polarizer and ND filter. No.1 the light glistening off the water was what caught my eye but to recapture closely the light off the water in return created dark shadows otherwise:/ I brought out a little of the color in Photoscape.

    btw, what brand is the best way to go for filters?
