    I like this image a lot but feel there is still something missing... I was thinking of a perspective that had a little less of the ice in the foreground and started at the reflection of the running water that included the top of the trees on the left, the peak of the hill and a bit of sky would be optimal. Not being there, that may or may not have been possible. Just a thought....

    Yes that would have been possible, but at the time that thought never came to me. The reflection could have been placed in cross lines of thirds at the bottom of the frame and maybe could have been more of the subject of the image. Thanks for your take on it.

    It is a beautiful image. What Scott said. The nice thing is you can go back an re-shoot. There is a great photo there.

    Hi John,

    I can see what Scott means, it has all the ingredients, but it just doesn't "snap, crackle and pop".

    Actually, that was perhaps a bad choice of words - in terms of perceived depth, it seems one dimensional, it is equally high contrast from the foreground right through to the distant mountains and I wonder what the cause is?

    It could be something in PP, but it might even be 'real life', perhaps the morning was that atmospherically clear.
    Normally you'd expect some contrast reduction as features recede into the distance, but it just doesn't seem to happen in this shot.

    In terms of composition, chopping the top off the tree and mountain probably hasn't helped. Now if you get the chance of a reshoot, imagine it as a three landscape shot, vertically stacked panorama
    A little wider, with the tops in shot and with oodles of resolution

    Cheers,
