Re: on the river

Maybe put the horizon on the Rule of thirds gridline? But it's still a very pleasing range of colors!!!

Re: on the river

Thank you Eric. I already cropped out some of the water in the foreground. I stopped the crop where I did because I like that calm water that is still visible there. I am glad that you like the range of colors, I think that i was doubting that part of the image the most.
Again thank you for your input, much appreciated.

Re: on the river

There is considerable noise in the skies and the left side is blurry in relation to the rest of the photo. Was it windy that day? Your shutter speed should have been sufficient for handholding and I'm a bit surprised that you have that much noise at that ISO. What camera and lens were used?

Did you do any post work? I think this image could benefit with some noise removal and some contrast and sharpening.

Re: on the river

Thank you oHenry. I did some adjustments on the noise as you suggested. I can really tell the difference and I do believe that it was the noise that was making me uncomfortable with the image. I also popped the contrast up a little and sharpened it some. I had done very little post work. I am fairly new to digital photography and it has been many years since I have photographed much at all. I was using a Canon Rebel XT with a Canon 80-200mm lens. It was quite breezy that evening on the river and perhaps I was a wee bit too excited to be shooting again, hence the blurriness. <;-/
Thank you again for your time and input.
