    Here's a shot thats been giving me a problem, I don't if I should edit out the shadow in the top right corner. Part of me thinks its distracting, but everytime I look at editting it I start to like the patten of the reflections.

    So I need some feed back from you experts, should I edit it out or just leave it alone??

    Cheers Andy

    I would say leave it as it gives some contrast to the ripples.

    I agree, leave it. There's another shadow too, so it's not like it's the only one.

    Fantastic crisp image! I really like this one. As for the shadow, I saw the photo before reading your question and I didn't even notice it. I say leave it in there. :thumbsup:

    i think your all probably right, I'll leave it alone, guess im too critical of my own work. If the shadow wasnt there id be moaning about it being empty. Many thanks as always for your feedback, you are a great bunch of people :)

    IMHO: The dark splotch in the upper corner IS a distraction. If it were lighter maybe it would not compete so much with the outline of the bird which is THE focal point of the photo.

    Actually, to "clone" out areas of water is not that dfficult; you might give that a try and see which, to your eye, is better.

    Just my two cents; and worth every penny of it.:)

    Leave it, now doubt you can edit it until the cows come home and never be satisfied!
