Good perspective to maximise the sweet morning light on this view and reflection on this lovely morning, Gavin!

I love the scene. Leveling the horizon would make this even better. Also there is a massive amount of barrel distortion - enabling lens correction or picking the proper lens profile in your RAW converter or image processing software would likely straighten that right out.

A very pleasant scene, Gavin-pretty morning light. I guess E.J. has some useful suggestions that I'd never have thought of!

I really like the light reflected on the rocks in the foreground and the perfect reflection.

Thanks for the tips.  I shall try them.  The dome-shaped horizon is an irritation that I couldn't work out how to solve.
