Gorgeous warm evening sunlight - can't pick a favourite, the quality of the set is so good!

A lovely set, I can almost hear the water lapping against the boats. And as LennyBloke says, gorgeous light.

Just a couple of niggles. In no. 1, the row of posts appearing out of the bottom of the frame feels uncomfortable, a bit of shoreline along the bottom would help (assuming they run out from the shore and you weren't up to the waist in water when you took the shot ). And perhaps turn no. 6 into wide-screen format by cropping off some of the top, that would emphasize the visual flow from top of trees to mountains and makes the sun bursting through the trees stand out.

The late sun has really brought out the colour in the boats.

Thanks, all, for your comments - glad to bring a little sunlight!

Steve, I appreciate your taking the time to comment in detail as you have, so here goes! First, I left the fence posts there as I thought they gave a bit of a lead-in line rather than empty water. Doesn't mean I'm right and you're wrong, just a different view. The fence (at least that part of it) does not in fact run from the shore (though I guess it surely must have at some point in its life! Here's a shot I took on a dull day seven years ago:

Secondly, I understand what you say and it's a perfectly valid approach. However, you probably know that I'm a sucker for "big skies" and it never occurred to me to crop as you suggest. I do seem to be cropping more and more these days from 3:2 to 16:9 ratio in my landscapes. Maybe it's because I like to see them fill my computer screen!
