I like it.

I'm hesitant to mention this because you are an excellent photographer and your images are so much better than mine, but it seems like the upper left side is just leaning a bit to the left due to perspective. I usually use the PS warp function and/or liquify for situations like this to selectively warp because, for instance, the reflections look straight but the trees and shoreline look a little slanted.

Ed, thank you for your comments. I too notice things like that observing photo's and often point them out to others. I appreciate both your taking the time and respectful communication method. I agree with you that the trees are leaning on the left side of the photo, though how much is due to the photo vs the trees themselves is questionable. You can see the trees near the structure are leaning where the structure isn't and I have many shots of the area from numerous angles and confirmed a few of the trees are leaning a bit as you point out. They are trees after all and subject to environmental conditions. Whether they should be modified is another question and matter of preference, which I will consider. Thank you again.

This dialogue has interested and impressed me ...
firstly I suppose because my eye is not discerning enough to notice the trees
secondly because of the respectful way it was addressed
thirdly because of how it was acknowledged.

When I first joined some on line photography groups I was shocked at some of the attitudes, so this is wonderful to see!

I do come to a number of POTN groups, and see this pretty much invariably,

Personally I don't comment on shots that I think are rubbish. So then if the shots are already good to start with (and of course I mean 'properly good'), it is always going to come down to a matter of opinion - or even just thoughts and ideas. I've had situations where I made a suggestion, than afterwards downloaded the image and try it myself, and it just doesn't work anyway.

Then, yes on average maybe only 1 in 10 comments (or less) will make you think - hmmm, that might be an idea. But when you are already experienced and tried quite a number of things, it is hard to get good/constructive ideas.

So, I just treat people the way I would like to be treated - I'd rather someone said something because I can always ignore it (or just agree, but maybe it was something I had no control over), but just occasionally you will get a gem, and those are more valuable than I can get from anywhere else. So that is the main reason I will make a comment rather than just do the easier thing and be quiet.

Plus, for instance I might move a rock or use liquify to bend a tree or change a color or something else that other people may not do for their own ethical reasons.

Very nice, I like a lot. But I do see the leaning as well, although it still looks fantastic, and far better than I can produce.

Hey roseyposey, is that tree leaning or did you use a fish-eye lens? (only joking) :)
