This is a difficult composition to get right George but on the whole I think this works extremely well. The centred horizon is balanced with the dramatic clouds and sunbeams on top and the beautifully rendered water below. As you say, it is a tad heavy on the right and could perhaps have done with more lake and less bank, but that's a matter of personal taste and it takes nothing away from a cracking shot. Like it loads.

Can't better Keith's comments George, I guess you must have been faced with a real dilemma, the light on a marvelous backdrop changing by the minute, the immediate foreground heavily weighted to the right, this isn't a bad result at all, on a big screen it looks great!, if it were mine I would crop from the bottom to just below the large rock in the foreground, this will tend to extend foreground interest across the image and the horizon off centre, as Keith says its all a matter of taste, but I think its well worth a try,

I keep coming back to this and have had different thoughts at different times. Merlynn has provided the way forward, though, for me. I'd go with his crop on the bottom and I'd also crop just a little on the right - almost to the base of the tree (or at least to the left edge of the dark area). That would then allow more focus on that fabulous sky and the shafts of sunlight. I like the backlighting that you've managed to tease out of the just below the tree. Regardless, you've still done very well in the conditions.

Sorry George late with comment so I'll just go to the re-edit.
