Cynthia, The snow at the top of the frame transitioning to the golden water is visually appealing. If time had permitted, maybe you could have brought down the shutter speed to decrease the ISO?

Hi Gene-good thought. It was actually quite dark there, so high ISO was important. Maybe could have gone down a notch though. I also want to see what this camera can do, noise-wise at high ISO....

Great setting, winter mood and composition. The reflection really adds to it.

Interesting habitat and I like the comp a lot...
It seems understated, I think a bit of saturation would really make this pop.
I can see a bit off the top emphasizing the terrific reflection.

Excellent composition and content make this refreshingly different with sweet detail and reflection. A CW rotation to level would make this lovely shot even better! A beauty, Cindy!
