First of all, thanks to the nature which gives us beautiful scenes to photograph. You captured a beautiful and relaxing scene, which is so peaceful and calm through many aspects in your photograph. I think the colors all in all are very well bend together but also stick out in some areas and that´s fantastic. I love the big contrast between the yellow/orange sand the tree crowns and the beautiful mirror-like blue water. The great thing is that the scene is portrayed from an angle which we would see with our own eyes if we would stand there and that´s the captivating thing, ´cause you´re really in this picture, in this nature scene. My eyes following the beautiful sunlight through the water grass and the tree crowns and finally to the sea. It´s very relaxing for the eyes and that´s also a positive aspect of your photograph. Your zoom is excellent, for God´s sake you don´t zoomed it more out or in, ´cause I think you choose the best fitting zoom for this scene. The picture let me feel relaxed and happy, I think if you would stand there a warm and calm feeling would fill your heart and that´s a great feeling which isn´t caused often by a photograph. I very like the area where the sun shines through the crown of the trees, it´s building up a sort of dynamic that is a little bit cautious but nevertheless urgently. You also mentioned it in your artist comment: I wish you had removed the bole out of the picture, but nevertheless your photograph is really excellent! Well done! You definitely deserve a favourite from me! Have a nice day! Best regards, Luca
I like the branch. I think it helps frame the shot. The left side of your picture is significantly more shaded than the right and the branch not only adds a clear distinction between the surface of the lake, but it also brings more shadow to the bottom left and helps direct the audience's eye across the picture towards the light.
Why you wanted removed that branch? It's just part of natural environment and fits totally into the whole landscape. I even didn't noticed,but only when I read what you wrote Anyway, wonderful pictures!
