Nice catch, Jeremy. Love it when the light does that.

Very nice Jeremy.  I do think that that shadows have a hint of blue that could be warmed up a bit.

Lots of good elements here but somehow they don't add up to a strong image for me. Maybe its the contrast between the orange and the blue. Often these sunny highlights are quite soft in nature, this contrast might be a little harsh.

I like it but I also find the shadows a bit too dark and blue. It's just a detail, though.

I'd not fiddled with the white balance at all. On consideration of the comments, though, I've lowered the blue saturation a tad (doesn't LR make these things trivial?) and I think it improves the image.

Thanks, all.
