Love the light, but why so much empty foreground?

cheers

Thanks Merlin, Andreas and Mike for your feedback.

Mike I like your boat pictures. I hope you had a nice stay here in central Switzerland.

I tried another crop and like to get your comments on this version:

I tried another crop and like to get your comments on this version:

Better me thinks, but for my taste still too much empty water, I would take off another 10%.

But how do you feel about the crop?

The new one you posted feels a lot better balanced in my eyes.

cheers

It was a very nice day trip to Lucerne but needed to wait until the afternoon for some sunshine, enjoyed the covered bridge!

Thanks for your comments Andreas. I too think the pictures is improved by cropping tighter. Here is another attempt:

Thanks Fons, Mike and Andreas for your comments. I'm now also happy to have found a better crop. I was a bit cought in an attempt to have the sun more towards a third into the picture. It is very rewarding to get such good advise.
