Sweet shot. I like the rich colors and the reflections in the water.

Charlie nice shot at first glance. Sharp great color very sharp. My only nit is like looking at a sunset shot with the horizon and sun right in the middle. I guess a little more on the top or bottom would have been great for me. Again, nice work.

I cropped to see the difference. I did not want to crop with more water, because the trees looked awesome in the background. This shot was taken with my Pentax 18-250 with the 1.7 tele on a mono pod. Came out not bad....not sure which one I like better...leaning towards the cropped one the more I look at it.

Nice shots Charlie and even nicer now that I know the set up - impressive indeed for an 18-250 and 1.7TC well done.

The crop looks great and an even more impressive shot given that you had the SR turned off. It might be worth trying to reduce the hot spots caused by the buckets if you can.

Nice peaceful scene.

Great shot and a perfect example of catching the light at the perfect time.

The reflections of the coats and figures compliment the overall darkness of the trees. The 2nd is the better.
