Very nice. The foreground greenery balances the sky, and stuff!

I like the division into thirds, vertically. Somehow that formalism contains the busyness. I think by constraining each type of busy into its own 1/3 band, you control it visually, and are permitted to squish a TON of stuff into the frame.

This is the classical "rule of thirds" which is quite different from the modern, photography-only, "put objects on 1/3 lines" that drives all the local Lake Wossname Resorts calendars.

The background and sky are a lot more interesting than the foreground.

^Agreed. The lines in the foreground work great to draw the eye back. I like the atmosphere and the scene from about the mid-ground and back. The foreground is detailed, and bright, but not very interesting.

Were it mine Id use a gradient to darken the first clump of foreground a bit a to help guide the eye to the midway and back sections, which is where the viewer can get comfortably lost in this wonderful richly atmospheric scene.

I would have looked around to see if there was something interesting to put in the foreground and then moved the camera to shoot it.

Thanks, all. Interesting comments.

It was fairly chilly, Tony, and it rained for much of the rest of the day: pretty much average for the the Lake District.

I dont like the plants in the foreground, but I love the distant mountains and mist.  I think its the color and contrast of the foreground that doesn't work for me.  Too busy up front.
