I am going with the first one also. Nice image!
Yup! For me, the brightness of the water in the lower left kept pulling my eyes down to the lower left, and as much as I wanted to, I kept losing the "moody" part. One, of the many MANY things, I have learned around here is just how subjective these issues are. And, in my opinion, any one of us who tells you the "right" way is, well, simply spouting an opinion, just like I am :biggrin:. But, in this effort of trying to understand, I have also learned a lot about how the eye is drawn to bright spots in the image, and once I realized that, I found it was pretty correct for me. So, I looked at your image, saw the mist, mood, bird and water, and for me the mist, mood and bird won.Interesting Bill, so no water? And the bird would be in the lower right of the photo? I really appreciate all the discussion and comments.
