Had a day out in the lake district, Cumbria. It was a bit of a bad day trying to get to certain locations due to the amount of traffic so I spent most of the time on the banks of lake Ullswater. Managed to get a few including these.

Hi Kena - I really like the tonal gradations in #1 as the scene takes my eye rolling among the hills of the notch. It is visually very relaxing and I like the timing of that mountain top highlight. It offers great contrast without any blowouts.

I am a little bothered though by the amount of flat, non-descript water which takes up too much of the image IMO. Took make a good picture much better I would experiment by cropping about 1/2 of the water and much of the intruding tree on the right. I just feel they distract from the strengths of the image.

Thanks for taking the time to comment Sapearl. The water was quite choppy due to the number of speed boats going up and down so the chance of any reflections were nil. I had to time my shots between the boats. I decided to use the 10 stopper. If I recall the top one was a 3 min exposure. The bottom one I just tried something different.
The location was very limited for a good vantage point with trees overhanging at either side giving me only a few feet to get to the waters edge. There was a lot more of the mountain range but I just couldn't get an unobstructed view.
I've had another look at the top one and agree with cropping a bit of the water out.

The green gold patches really spark it up in the first.
