Hi Luis

This is an amazing capture!
The light and mood are simply terrific here and the long shutter speed helped create taht lovely effect on the water that also adds to the overall composition.
The very steap rock formation on the sides of the image make some sort of a natural framing for the shot and do indeed give the impression of Mordor :))
Splendid and very sharp details on the rock, great definition for the textures and a charming presentation.
Magnificent work!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Luis,
Outstanding landscape!
You really did it great with the ND8 + polarizer +remote+ mirror lock-up.
The result is just great.
The colors gradations on the sky gives a rich tones to the image.
And the extra-long exposition had created a very interesting atmosphere and effect, it's like a perfect back for a fairly tales story.
Do you use some of this images for your comic's work?
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Luis,
James Tiberius Kirk is missing here;'beam me up, Scotty!':-)

Hi Luis, this is a beautiful shot from an excellent POV. Well composed with wonderful colours, strong light and hues. The rocks in the foreground lead the eye up to the dreamy sky. All very sharp, very nice composition.

This is lovely, Luis. Color, saturation, contrast, and sharpness all work together to make this a very strong image. Nice work.
