    While I think the colours are ok, I would strongly advise to spend some time with the basics of composition and the usage of wide angle lenses. The distortion just destroys everything here and the lack of composition (that wire cutting through the pic) ruins this beautiful morning.

    I don't really mind the distortion here....taken with a fisheye eyes? i do find the bottom a bit tight, the image underexposed, and the overhead cable distracting. suggest including more of the foreground, some backlight correction, and cloning away the distracting cable.
    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    Many thanks for the pointers, sorry this is a fisheye lens. Snapping this shot in mind then was "with the cable or without the fence". Agreed composition is important.

    More foreground seem to make the pictures look so much different. Thank you very much!
