    Hi Richard,

Your scene is getting better each time. The golden rim light on the pampas plumes is dramatic. The water reflections look better too.

Since you took the trouble to repost this:

Your crop on this one makes the scene stronger overall, but the sunlit cloud is so bright that it overwhelms the rest. I've tried to tone it down in Photoshop, and hide it with content aware tools, but nothing looks natural. Your best bet would be to block the sun behind something denser next time.

Spot-healing out the more distracting sun flare looks better. I left one in because it fit on the end of the sunbeam.

Cheers, Roxie
