Not all water is in the canal, however - the river Colne flows alongside for quite a distance.

Canals and rivers make appealing subjects for me, even more so with the autumn trees. Here (not being a fan of milky water) I enjoy the natural look of #2. Great reflections in #10, but perhaps lose the left 20%?

#9 could almost be a Constable painting.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

the river seems narrow to practice by boat

1, no 2, no 7! Like these a lot

9 I agree would be a painting. Did you get any of no.9 without any people in?

Thanks you all for your generous comments!

Philip, on reflection - oh dear! - I think your cropping suggestion is a good one.

Gareth, I don't have that shot without people. It was getting quite busy at the time I took this. I wonder if Constable would include a high-vis cyclist if he were painting today! I'm not sure my cloning skills are up to making the walkers disappear!

There's some great scenes captured in this set.

I have had a play with two that really caught my eye.




and the crop that I would have done as the scaffolding on the building can be cropped as well




Best regards

Thanks, Gary, and no problem with your playing! The first one is good for me apart from the green leaves which to me now look over-saturated and unreal; I'm fine with the crop in the second, though the warm light on the building now makes me think of the skin tone of a certain "politician"! A bit over-cooked for me, though the barge looks lovely.
