I would have preferred a small canoe, or some ducks, or something in the water, but alas, no such luck.

Shot hand-held with the Canon 16-35/2.8L at 16mm

Cropped to 8x10 aspect ratio, "Shadow/Highlight" filter to bring out the contrast, slight increase in green saturation, "Match Color" to neutralize color cast, NeatImage, resize, USM.

Nice reflections and exposure. I think cropping out the jetty on the left would improve the image.

I like the reflection you caught in the water in this pic. People in the top left corner are a little distracting.

Good one. Sky is overwhelming though. Perhaps crop a little bit of the sky to emphasize the beautiful reflection more and so your viewer's eyes are led to the vanishing point rather than the sky.

Like the colors, and like the reflections on the canal. But I think I'll cropped a little more on the top...
