Crummock water reflection

Here is a shot from yesterday taken at Crummock water. I have not had time to process any other shots yet.

That's a lovely shot Alf but I must admit to not being a fan of the vivid nature of the blue shade.

I was thinking much the same. A bit too blue for my liking.

Re: Crummock water reflection

I like the contrast between warm and cool colour tones, but I notice the reflected cloud on the left does not have the same warmth that it does in the sky and that rather spoils the believability (is that even a word? )

Thanks John
The colours are caused by combination of filters I am now considering some Lee seven5 filters
believability no idea if thats a word

Re: Crummock water reflection

I do like your Lakeland landscapes Alf. The last one is my favourite of these two, that boathouse gives it a grand sense of scale. Personally, I prefer it with some foreground cropped off to make it symmetrical with far lake shore in the center, but that's just a style I like.

Re: Crummock water reflection

Vastly better colour than #1, Alf. #1 just wasn't believable with that almost kingfisher blue. #2 is a very nice shot.

Re: Crummock water reflection

I like both and I don't mind the blue. I would however crop the bottom 1/4 off both and make them panoramic (but I think Alf knows that by now).
