This is my very first challenge.

This shot was taken, believe it or not,on the way to a Nikon training for my new D200. The early morning sun was rising over the reservoir and although I was late I managed to persuade my good wife to stop for this shot.

Very little post editing was carried out.Slight cropping,very minor saturation and then resized.

Ahhh - even before I read the title I knew where this was taken ;-)
That bush intruding on the left needs to be in or out, not just glancing round the corner. The stronger image might have been to use the towers up at the Derwent dam in order to have some structure to the composition.
