Vision All I have to say to sum up most of what everyone is saying is that color that you were able to capture is astounding. From what I’m able to tell you were able to capture what you wanted in this waterscape. For that, I say you have succeeded in in bringing this picture
Originality You have done other pictures from this location, but this one has the most color difference due to the sunset, water, and clouds. Personally I think this is your best one at this location so far.
Technique For this picture, it was done in a way that made it very crisp (as usual), and the viewer is able to see the trees in the back ground in great detail without have to look too hard. Plus you were able to get to that location to take this picture, and probably waited for a while to allow the picture to get the way you wanted it to be. Once again another well shot picture.
Impact As I've said before waterscapes, landscapes, and nature pictures in general are supposed to convey an emotion. For this picture the ones that are brought to mind are calming, soothing, relaxation. Then because of all of these relaxing emotions that are felt it kind of brings the viewer to get into a since of lull, or just not caring about time itself.
WOW!!! I think that about sums it up, lol I love the diversity of the colors, the color saturation and the calmness of the photo. It's breathtaking. I would love to use this as a reference for a painting I want to do. If I post it I will definitely give you credit. If Finland is as beautiful as the pictures you take, I want to go there someday! You're a master behind the lens.
Ah this is such an exciting photo! The way you capture reflections is hard to believe. I'm sure you have to be a huge inspiration to all of your fans. It's photos like these that make me go outside everyday and discover the beauty around me. Love it!!
