I agree, nice reflections and good composition.

Did you increase the saturation of the blues? It seems a little overdone.

Well done, but I'd prefer it not quite so vertically centered and maybe crop a bit off the bottom.

Great capture, don't you wish that you had some clouds that day... I always wish for big puffy white clouds on days like this. Awesome none the less.

Thanks George. I went back to the original RAW shot and it actually had more of an overall blue tint to it? In fact alot of the ones I took that day had a blue cast??? That had never happened before, or since? I shot with AWB, maybe a mistake?

Thanks for your comment

Thanks for the comments eldiablo, kenyc, DGD, dHarris!

I agree with your crop suggestion kenyc, I actually posted the wrong pic here. I cropped this version this way for another purpose. If I were to hang it, I would go bak to one that was not centered vertically.

Shot with a 40D/17=40L USM @ 32mm

Thanks again

Not, it's not a WB mistake. The farther things are away form you, the more blue they look. It has to do with the refraction of water particles in the air. I love this shot, I don't think its overdone at all, but I would probably desaturate the cyan in the mountains a bit.
