This is such a beautiful photo. I love it very much. The angle taken is perfect. Love the reflection and the scenery. It adds tranquility and peace to the whole photo. Great job. You r very talented. OO.. If you have the time, do come and visit my page [link]
Nah, you're right, foreground is a bit dark. I tried making it lighter but it didn't seem quite right so we are where we are hehe (looks more realistic this way, I didn't want it to start looking like a HDR or something )
Similar thing with that horizon lol It was tilted 2° clockwise (the pillars of the tea house I mean), so I set them straight only to realize that due to the terrain and the width of the lens suddenly the whole left side was sliding out of the picture. In the end I settled for a fix of 1°, the pillars are still a bit tilted, but at least there is some sort of balance I think (maybe I should've rotated it a touch more?)
Or maybe I should start fixing the barrel distortion when it comes to such wide angles?
