A scene we have seen many times here in the studio. The weather and lighting were not great when I had a weekend in the lakes last month, but you still have to try your best and make the most of it.
Brightness/contrast, hue and saturation, lots of d&b. gradient added to the sky, resized and usm.

It may be familiar but it's a scene I never tire of, though, so always happen to see any number of shots of it. Each one is unique, in any case; never exactly the same weather conditions for one. I can't recall seeing this in portrait format before and I can't make up my mind whether it would look better with some of the sky cropped off. You've done a good job of bringing some interest to the sky but I believe it would be a stronger image if you cropped down to about 0.5in above the hillside. I'll see what my learned friends make of it, though.

Like Alan I never tire of Lakeland Scenes for the reasons he has noted, everyone is in some way unique.
And this one is no exception, especially as it's in portrait format. Lovely early Autumnal colours, nice detail and a nice sky to boot.
I have tried Alan's suggested crop and it works for me....... BUT, I also like this as it is with all of the sky. so it comes down to personal choice.
A great shot Peter, luv it.

I agree with the guys, the crop is a personal choice and I like them both and never tire of seeing this iconic bridge. A beautiful shot Peter, luv it!

Yes a great shot Peter, not everyone has this photo, I don't for one.
The colours look a bit vivid but that's most likely down to my monitor as the others have not mentioned it.
Personal taste with size and crop etc., but you have to start and finish somewhere. Nice one.

Lovely shot this Peter, luv the amount of fine detail captured in the rocks and bridge, loads of depth created between the rich colours in the mid ground and the background of misty mountains, I like Alan's top crop but not as far down, I feel the crop works better if cropped to the top of the cloud left side, it gives a nice thirds composition and all that's removed is a band of featureless sky, one more point it maybe an optical illusion but I think the image is in need of a some rotation to the right,
Nicely edited with a great result, luv it, well done!

An old favourite which just has to be taken if you are in the area. I could never make up my mind about crops so I used to take both portrait and landscape. I also used to get lower down into the water but not enough to block out Derwentwater above. I think those trees have grown a bit since I was there (yonks ago) so it is not as easy as it used to be.
Slight pity that the day wasn't brighter but that is "The Lakes" for you. A wonderful shot.

Lovely shot Peter the lads have said it all. Well taken & edited. Sorry I'm a bit late with the comment.
