[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cotton-wool clouds is what I call them, the
marvelous cloud formations in the Norwegian summer sky. Here at the lake Storevatn, close to Hemsedal, you have a fantastic view on the mountain Skogshorn (1728m) in the distance.
I was really caught by this beautiful landscape along the so called Panorama-road around the mountain area Gollsfjellet.

Hi Ruud!

You have taken a wonderful landscape in excellent light conditions. I like the composition very much with the foreground that leads into the picture and that accentuates the depth. I also like the division of the picture with a large part allocated to the sky.

Just be ware of the exposure: your bright tones, here the whites in the clouds, are parially burnt! 255 or very close to it. When taking such a sky, measure the exposure on the bright clouds. Later you can brighten the darks.

Kind regards

Hello Ruud,

hello Ruud,
Magnificent landscape again, taken from an excellent point of view. I like the great place left to the sky with it cotton-wool-like clouds.
Thanks for this beautiful picture

Hoi Ruud,
Een prachtige foto waar de super wolken de foto nog mooier hebben gemaakt. Dit ziet er echt uit als een super mooi gebied en dus iets wat ik op m'n lijst ga zetten. Markus heeft wel een goed punt mbt de belichting, maar ik weet hoe moeilijk dit kan zijn met dit soort licht. Ook heb ik het gevoel dat je blauw een beetje onrealistisch is. Als je deze wat minder verzadigd komt het minder dominant over.

Hello Ruud,
What beautiful colors. Nice work!
P.S. Here is a smiley face for you! I ran out of them & didn't know why until Nick & Richard helped me.

Hello Ruud,
This seems like a nice part of Buskerud, with a good view to the mountains over the lake!
Peaceful atmosphere and a pleasant reflection of the wonderful summer sky...
