    Thank you ladies for your kind words. The light was very good that day, which is what landscape photography is about. [The Light] I always try to expose to the right on the histogram, till the white bits just start blinking on the histogram. The settings, 1/640 sec, f 5.6. ISO200. The second photo taken almost from the same place. Tripod, shutter release button,  ND grad to help with the sky, 1/8 sec, f16, ISO 100.  What has also helped me with my photography is having a good mentor, Paul Hill, for many years.

    The light is beautiful in both Robert, but, personally I prefer the composition of the first shot and find the birds / swans to be just a little sharper.  So for me this adds more to the scene and overall quality of the image.  Many thanks for the camera settings.  Very helpful indeed. I fully intend to get my tripod out and experiment.

    There seems to be some gremlins in the system as I cant see page 1 and the first photo to compare them. Perhaps it’s just me. However, in the second , like Dolores says, the lighting is very gentle and suits the subjects. I like the way the water leads in and to buildings are on the top third. Some people like the milky effect a long shutter speed gives to water. Personally I like a bit of texture in my water although I not keen on it pin sharp either.
