Beautiful! The details on the rocks and wood are well preserved. And so are the reflections on the water. Everything appears so smooth here! The B&W toning adds to the drama. Good job!

I am blown away by your images again and again, this one is no exception. The softness and stillness of the frame gives this such a mood of melancholy. I love the reflection of the moving clouds in the water. Brilliant, once again.
