Re: Should I crop?

Looks pretty good to me. I do like a bit more of the dark water than in the crop I did.

Maybe should have done selective exposure correction.

What if I HDR it Since I shot with the HiRes, and it's in RAW

I think you'll spoil it but worth a try just to prove me wrong

Be careful, if you try this. It's important that the reflection is darker than the sky otherwise it will look un-natural. Also, I think the dark base helps the composition.


I often make selective adjustments, by using the dodge and burn tools in the Photoshop tools palette. Use very small values of adjustment (around 5%) and work gently on parts of the image that you feel should be brightened or suppressed.
