Tranquility and calm. What a wonderful sanctuary of escape.

Love the name, wonder if its because of something that happened many moons ago?

Hmm, very nice, but I wonder if you had considered burning in the top right branches coming out of the water by ½ to 1 stop darker?

When I look at the image with the light colours of the bulletin board surrounding it, it looks very good. However, when I isolate the image to view on its own and I remove all the extraneous coloured back ground so my screen is all black; except for your image, the relative brightness of those branches change greatly.

Ah, Mick, to burn or not to burn; that is the question. This photograph is an 8x10 contact and the bright branches are very small so I let them go almost to paper-base white. The (good/bad) excuse behind this is that the viewer would not expect to see detail in such a small area and won't complain when the detail is not there . Now if this picture was planned as a big enlargement then definitely burn or mask to bring out details in top highlights. Big blank white areas in a photograph tend to look false.
