A lovely shot Steve and it looks as if you are on the only piece of solid ground for some distance
Love the pov with the strip of clear water leading the eye into the shot. The lighthouse is a nice inclusion and although I love the sky I think a crop is in order, to bring the horizon just below the thirds line.
Still like it loads though, well done.

Looking at the exit you had some really good lighting for this shot Steve, the f22 gives a great DOF front to back in sharp focus. I think they say to avoid 50/50 landscapes, so perhaps George's thoughts about cropping some of the sky might be a good idea.
But it really is a great shot, well done.

Have cropped a bit of the top please see new vertion

Better, but I would have been tempted to crop a little more, only a personal preference however.

I never caught the origional image but the composition is good in this one. Lots of interest from front to back with good colours too. Well done Steve.

A placid looking and well captured landscape shot Steve, nicely done.
