    Hi Jack,

    It would help us to help you if you said a few words about each image you post; e.g. any shortcomings you're already aware of, why you shot it the way you did, etc.

    With this one it is a pleasant enough scene, but in my opinion there's probably bit too much uninteresting foreground and I'd suggest a crop of about 15% off the lower edge, so the line between grass and reeds goes into the corner of the image. It might also stand a counter-clockwise rotation, it doesn't look quite level to me.

    There is just a hint of lens/filter vignette in all four corners, so this is 'as shot' I guess, this could/should be corrected or cropped off.

    I think there maybe a better shot to be had here by getting lower and shooting from a bit further forward, with the red grasses on left and reeds on right, losing the bare patch on extreme left.

    Hope that helps,

    I will second everything Dave stated. I'd like to see a bit more sky and a slightly lower angle with less foreground as well. Where you shooting with any filters? The colors in the sky are rich with good contrast. Have you done any PP to this image or is it an out of camera shot? I'm not sure but I think I've heard somewhere that the sweet spot on that lens is f/11. With the amount of light available you could have been at ISO 200 though 400 is not high at all for the 5D mkII. Also, was this hand held? A tripod might help you get a straighter horizon on landscapes.

    I'm not sure about cropping to something like 2 x 1 ratio or removing a corresponding amount from the left side and retaining the original ratio. I think both would work well.
