Hi Ben,
WOW! that is a beautiful scene. Very well composed and framed. The tree branches frame it perfectly. So mant shades of blue in this great shot. I love the clouds. Great texture in the sky.

Hello Ben,
lovely blue colours of the water and sky. Also great clouds. I wondered if the lighter colour of the water in the foreground is due to river outrun in the lake.
Regards and all the best for 2007!

Hello Benyamin,

A great colourful image to bid 2006 farewell...


Pablo -

Hi Ben,
My first thought was that you created a duo-tone photo, but then slowly I started to discover more colors. The wonderful blue colors of the sky and ocean look really beautiful. Great way of using the braches for framing the view.

A happy 2007 to you as well.

bellephoto,bonne netteté,belles couleurs,bonne année.

Well done Ben,
Very nice shades of blue, and I like the natural framing of the branches above.
Good use of the polarizer to pump up those blues too :)

Un simple y bello paisaje Ben con la belleza de sus colores y el apropiado encuadre con las ramas en penumbra en primer plano.
El fondo de esas imponentes nubes realza la profundidad de la composición.
Feliz 2007!!!

A simple and beautiful landscape Ben with the beauty of their colors and the appropriate framing with the branches in dimness in forefront
The bottom of those imposing clouds enhances the depth of the composition.
Happy 2007!!!
