    :scratch: I think this one could use some outpatient treatment.

    Love the pattern, textures and reflection, but the bg is very distracting. Was there an extended landscape there? Like hills and/or trees?

    there were a few trees and a small barn on the right. i tried my unexperienced hand at cloning a few years ago and screwed up by saving the changes. since i suck at ps i can't get it right. maybe i'll crop out the sky altogether....i like though...argh!!!!!!!!!!

    edit: here's one with the sky removed.....not sure i like it...looks blah

    The picture is a great landscape shot except for that sky out there... Up until that point is it a picture that I would hold onto. Keep working with PS and I'm sure you'll get it right sometime, you have to. :)

    I think I like it better with the sky.
    But that's a beautiful pic anyways.

    I like it .. I wouldn' remove totally the sky, but I agree that is a bit distracting
    good job

    i prefer it with the sky in. it makes it feel more dramatic and makes the water at the forefront of the picture seem darker and more mysterious. like something dark out of lord of the rings. with the sky it makes it feel as if something bad is going to happen, whereas the one without the skyjust looks like a picture with no real feeling or depth.
    thats what i think, but yeah, the original is superb, absolutely fabulous!

    I do like the one with the sky, but I will agree with woodsac. it is a little distracting. maybe tone down those clouds just a little in PS. I feel like they have a little too much contrast. I Did a really quick touchup by lightening the sky a little. It could sill use some work, but I think it is less distracting to the beautiful ground. Let me know if it is ok to post.
