Your water looks magical!
Nice effect indeed. (although you do have a small part that is a bit burnt out)

A very different effect here ..... it looks more wintery and cold! I like the leaves in the foreground.

Thanks very much for all the encouraging comments seven frames was a lot but it seemed worth doing as I went through the manual brackets - to try and get detail in the bridge shadows, could have got away with less probably though!
