I told my wife that even though she is teensy-weensy in this shot, she is, nonetheless, the star.  I'm not sure she's buying it.

Fuji Xt-1: ISO 400, 18 mm, f/16, 1/150 sec.

Hard for me to imagine how your image could be improved upon, seems you made all the right choices in terms of setting the scene, your camera settings and any PP you may have applied. Very nice work indeed.

 

 The story behind the pic reminds me of a similar occasion where mu camera shy uncle was not keen to be in a pic and I had to convince him he would not be other than an outline...(-:

Beautiful location, Kerry, and the comp is spot on.  It would be a lesser photograph if your wife wasn't in it

Thanks, Geedee, but trust me, the last thing I'd ever say about my wife is that she's shy  :D

Thanks, Rod.  I passed over this shot until now because in RAW it looks so flat and dull.  But having my wife as a focal point made me want to give it a try.  I'm not one to get too hung up on rules for composition but my wife is exactly one third from the bottom and one third from the side.

Love the strong presence of the tree on the right, great sky, foreground line of trees is great, water is always good at the right angle..it does great on it's own...having said that, your wife is a lovely addition!  Nice shot.

Thanks for the props.  As to my wife being a nice addition - I certainly like to think so    ;)

I think the clouds/sky, natural framing with the trees, and your wife (for scale, and also another natural beauty😀) make for a beautiful image. Who says mid-day photography doesn't work!?! Great image Kerry.

Very nice. Well framed and composed. I like the dramatic clouds and your wife adds interest - she's like a fish in an Osprey's talons.

"... like a fish in an osprey's talons."  Funny, that's more like how I feel  :P
