I've been following your work for a while, and like most of us, some of it is hit and miss... but this one is certainly a hit. This is a perfect setting, for a high-impact image. The morning light makes for really clear reflections, and the mist of blowing snow provides a very nice ethereal feel. The flow and line of this image lets the eye lead from one interesting node to another. I'm certain you took other images at this location, and can understand why you settled on this. I am curious, though, about a couple of compositional choices. Not playing down the beauty of this image, I am curious what would have happened at an angle a bit closer to the ground/water-line, removing the snow in the foreground... or bringing in more of the fence on camera-right to really create a leading line into the background. Perhaps using a wider lens, or taking some exposures just to the right of the center of this image, and stitching them into a pano would do the trick. That being said, it seems where you were standing was the perfect spot to fit the puzzle-pieces of reflection into the frame.
Would you mind if I used this in a manipulation? It's just so beautiful and I can't find another picture that suits the background needed better than this one. Of course, credits will be in the description. . I would greatly appreciate it!
