Hi Mark,
Superb clarify of the underwater world. Those fish seems to fly in the air. Well done!
Cheers, Andriy

I love Croatia, I love the lakes in Croatia, I love the islands in Croatia...... and of course I love the sea and I love the people... ;o)
This photo is such a splendid example of the beauty of this country! Maybe a bit of level adjustment could have enhanched this even further.

Stunning colours, superb PoV - truly amazing to see those fish so clearly in the waters

Hello Mark,
Extremely beautiful landscape image with the true beauty of nature!
great pov with awesome colour and superb details!
just like a paradise and many thanks for the sharing
well done

Being a fisherman this shot is very enjoyable. The color of the water is amazing. Great POV. The trees could be a little darker


Hallo Mark
This is a beautiful landscape and splendid view you shared with us. There are such a lot of lovely features in this one image to appreciate. A beautiful display of colour and detail of the elements of nature all in one. Blue sky, white clouds, an assortment of green trees in the distance, the lovely light reflected on the water, smooth water surface to me the main delight of this image is the fishes swimming so peacefully. It was an absolute delight to look at this great scenery, as it has an absolute serene feel to it.
Best regards.

Hi Mark!

You present us a well composed and pleasant landscape picture. The lighting is well done with full details even in the white clouds. The colours are superb and the picture invites for a visit of that national park.

Kind regards


What a superb POV and composition Mark! Great work for sharing this crisp, cool, clear lake with us!

TFS and Best

Hi Mark,
excellent shot, those fish are a really nice touch to this. Love the clarity of the water you have caught here and the little fluffy clouds peeking out at the top are great too - an excellent landscape, well composed with very good colours.

beautiful lake and beautiful place indeed! great colors and perfectly clear water! tfs

Hi Mark,
You made me relive good memories. I loved this place when I went in 1999. To return to your photo, the colours are wonderful, composition and exposure very nice. Just one point, a horizon correction will be good.

Hello Mark,
Amazing clarity with crytal clear water. No doubt, it is a natural aquarium. TFS
