This is the second of my 'winter lake' shots, and in many ways I suspect that it might be my favourite. Compositionally, it's not the strongest of the four I'll be posting, but it's the only one I could get to work in colour. As with my previous shot, there was nothing especially complex about the postproduction, but I did spend quite a bit of time amending the colour palette to give a more 'accurate' impression of winter. I also spent quite a bit of time cloning out the power lines, as you can see from the original:

Let me know if you prefer this one to my previous entry.
