@Jason: Hey thanks for the comment Jason, and really - if it is damn near perfect it's thanks to you showing me how to play with exposure!

If you really are a beginner this is VERY good. For this kind of landscape/sunset type of shot I like a much higher aperture thought. Its all really depends upon what you want to make though.

You know how to bring peace of mind. Did you ever see Collateral with Fox and Cruise? The protagonist in the film --a taxi driver-- had dreams of moving up and a limousine service called Island Limos. Anyhow, there was this postcard he would keep and meditate on when he wanted to move his thoughts to more pleasant and better things. This image of yours is that sort of image.

Thats nice Marg - I know 'nice' isn't a very technical term but it really is................reminds me of Waikato or Taranaki farmland lakes and ponds actually. I can almost feel the mozzies biting ;o)
