This is really nice as it is Bryan.

I think cropping any more would lose the dynamacy of the shot.
The extreme bottom left, showing us the tree line/bushes not only balances the frame, but also adds to the lead in of the river into the distance.
Excellent sky scape in addition to the river and surrounding countryside.
The Sigma has done a great job here capturing a nice sharp image, as have you with your composition.

Could I ask, was this shot in auto mode? I see the ISO at 560 has induced quite a lot of noise in the shot.

I've done a little workshop on the sky, using an ND filter just to add more detail to the clouds, which has also increased the polarising effect and then used Noise Reduciton to clean it up a little, hope it works for you.

A really nice shot, well done.

Hi Bryan,
A wonderful tranquil play where one's eyes relax.
A nice natural panorama adorned with a marvelous sky and a nice limpid water of the lake.
Very natural colors and a neat presentation.
My best regards,

Francis Xavie

Very peaceful composition with great colors, good for a man's soul after a wild Friday night! Well done, tfs.

Such a razor-sharp view from a wonderful landscape and the river cutting it artistically, Bryan!
The colors are fantastic and clarity is amazing in the shot.
The cloud formation in the sky is so beautifully captured.
I love the ambiance in the work.#
Well seen!

Best regards,

Hi Bryan,

A really nice landscape composition. I don't think I'd change the crop any, it's pretty close to following the rule of thirds as is. The only thing I might try differently is to burn-in the sky a bit. The right side is bordering on OE, and I think it would be better if darkened slightly. Nice work.
