good decision to leave the shadows ( even though theres a lot of them), i think it may have looked false had you lightened them, I really have to get up there more often and learn where these places are.

I want to visit there next year. I really do. Wonderful autumn colours, Merlynn. Love what the sun did to the right side of the photo.

Yes there are really deep shadows at this time of year, we shouldn't try to fiddle with them. This looks really natural, Merlynn. Nice one, well done.

Beautiful landscape photography Merlynn. You have captured a very natural, tranquil scene and the lighting highlights lift this image tremendously. I like the cold blue of the water and dark foliage in contrast to the warmly lit mountains / hills. One area that continually draws my eye is the large brown tree located on the lhs by the waters edge - is that shadow really natural? Great photograph...good effort.

Very attractive scene. Don't think I've ever seen the Beacons without some clouds in the sky so your capture is quite unusual for me.

What more can be said - lovely

Just echo the above.

For once a cloudless sky that works, no distraction from the beautiful forms and colours of the hills and water. Well done Merlynn.
