    I like the 2nd one best. If I was you, which I'm not, but if I was I would put a selective soft light layer ontop of the water and orange of the sky to really make that reflection POP

    Thanks, nick. If I knew how, I might. You've got my brain working.

    this is an example, might have over done it a bit to show you what I mean but I think it seperates the reflection from the grass and give you a more defined edge. as I said this may be over the top for alot of people but if you want the Photoshop file let me know and you can back off the effect

    I use Corel, not Photoshop, so the Photoshop recipe wouldn't do me any good. I'm guessing a color-balance adjustment layer with the blending mode on soft light. But I was never a good guesser. Thanks again.

    The first photo grabs me more. It's drab and leaves many unanswered questions, much like my existence. :)

    Both nice shots, and I prefer your interpretation. You were the one that was there.

    Thanks. As an aside, a few months ago I wouldn't have understood your using the word "interpretation." I've come to realize that the RAW data can go in a zillion directions and whatever you choose is indeed one interpretation and nothing more.

    Both nice images, for me #1 has more of a story to tell.....I like the drab mood created by the mist and subdued colours.

    Thanks for the comments, Roger. Drab isn't always bad.

    I agree that a touch more contrast might be nice but not the to the extent that you lose detail like the other guys example
