Cheers for your feedback!
either..... Any thoughts as to how the composition could have been improved?
I feel that bottom portion of the image appears to be forming a blunted triangle shape, yet it is too cropped. The sky while nice and blue does not has a hard time complementing the land below, the sky basically forms a strip that takes up 2/3rds of the photo but land below might be more interesting to focus on. This composition may be better as a 4x5 or perhaps even square ratio as opposed to the ~21:9 ratio.
Also, for the last photo I was jsut wondering what you meant by the composition not being very tight? Is that in reference to trying to take in too much in one go? But again, any recomposition tips/ideas would be greatly appreciated!
The image would be benefited by taming the contrast of the sky versus the water. It is a nice symmetry scene, however perhaps a zoom and pan to the left might be a better image. The tree on the left hand side is very interesting (but is cut off in your photo) and could include the distant snow covered mountains. Kind of like this:
