    very interesting shot. I'm not sure i dig the big empyt dark space on the right side, but if you crop it, the picture will be very loooooong and i'm not sure that will work well here.

    Try going back and playing with it some more...it's an interesting idea.

    I do have some wider shots with more water, but I felt that the negative space balanced the water, as well as adding one of the abstract elements I am so fond of. I'll play around with some of my other shots, and repost it here.

    Maybe if the negative space was at an angle and not clean cut line straight down the vertical? Not sure what it is, but the negative space bothers me as is. That's just my opinion.

    bring on the repost and by the way, welcome to the Forum...

    this post is much much better IMO. Is this the same shot just cropped? If so, I might opt to keep more of the trees in, but I would have to see it. The only issue I have now is i wonder where the water is coming from...but there is nothing wrong with keeping the viewer wondering.
