[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have just had a short break to the Italian Lakes. This is a picture taken at the town of Sirmione at Lake Garda. Lake Garda is a large freshwater lake of glacial origin.

This was taken looking down a slope to the rocky beach. I deliberately took this angle excluding a horizon as I loved the unusual colours and textures. I wanted a slightly surreal almost painting like look to this photo. I took this from a grassy hillside covered in olive trees

Hi Karan

A really nice view of this lake shore.
Ni ceomposition with the tree off-centered, lovely colors and light, nice details and POV. Maybe if you had moved a bit more to the right, to exclude the left bush/tree from the frame you would have obtained a more simple compo...just a thought, not necessary an advice :)

Bravo, ayway, and TFS

This is WONDERFUL! I like those colors very much. The transparence of the water is so nice... Great POV, DOF and composition! This is really well done. We feel like being in a dream :) TFS dear Karan,

Hello Karan,
This image is a bit strange, but most of all very beautiful!

Muy bonito paisaje Karan, principalmente por el POV y el colorido captado.
Los tonos del agua se mezclan con los del follaje produciendo un efecto muy agradable.
Me agrada... realmente.
Saludos... Ricardo

Very beautiful landscape Karan, mainly for POV and the captured coloring.
The tones of the water mix with those of the foliage taking place a very pleasant effect.
I like... really.
Greetings... Ricardo

I like your wonderful composition in this very nice colour of the coast

Wow, this is stunning!! The colours are just incredible, it's like a water colour painting.
Beautifully composed with the tree just off to the left, I love it.
Thank you for posting.

Hi Karan,

You have chosen a very unusual POV, I like it, the colours are good too. TFS:-)
