I went out this morning for only the second time the 10 stopper, hoping to get some decent skies, but sadly it was just overcast and not much wind to move them along!
I'm lucky to have this reservoir on my doorstep, but the level is a bit low so there arn't many things to add interest in a long exposure, water blur shot - so I had to improvise - the thought of using a guitar as a prop came to me last night as I was stuggling to sleep...

More natural look, (as natural as a looking guitar can be!)...

What could I have done better do you think? It'd be good to hear which one you prefer and why?
