This one is for Tony (Gracious) for all his fantastic landscape photos :-)

This was taken while on a very early morning photography trip. This is the lake where I take atleast 80% of my photos!

I hope you like it!

Hi Joe

This is simply stunning! WOW!
I've been searching for a similar place around here but without any luck yet...you, on the other hand, have a splendid habitat for all sorts of animals but also a terrific place for landscapes :) Lucky you!!!

This is an amazing landscape especially because you didn't use any grad filters. In such compositions, they are usually a must, but apparently you managed to dismiss that rule :)
The result is a superbly balanced exposure, with some very charming colors and excellent attention to detail, both in the FG and the horizon.
I particularly like the small red lines all across the clouds, farther from the horizon - very well visible both ion the sky and the reflection.
I would only like to know what you did in the PP here, if possible.

Anyway, an excellent job!

Hola Joe,
Precioso trabajo, has sabido encontrar el lugar y la luz para conseguir esta bella foto. Un bonito regalo para Tony, lo tiene bien merecido por sus amables e interesantes comentarios. Saludos

Hi Joe,
A splendid landscape shot to a great landscape expert, Tony.
Worth dedication.
Well done Owlman!


Beautiful scenery with gorgeous colours. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Joe,
A beautiful scenery work. Very good dedication for Tony. Very good composition and lovely colors. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Joe,
Very beautiful landscape. No ugly birds to destroy the magic;o) Good composition and lighting, amazing colours. Good work!

hello joe,
the early morning sun has created magic on the sky and the reflections have added to the charm.i liked the mood of the shot and the tones very much, very fine point of view with a pleasing composition,

I am sure that tony will be pleased to see this nice landscape.

tfs & regards

This is a real beauty, Joe. The color is stunning and so is the composition with those beautiful sharp grasses curving across the frame. Nice work.

Evelynn : )

AHA! You are doing the Paul Haynes, Horia tony Ho shot trick:-) this is one I cannot do. My Nikon does NOT do this trick Joey. It is mostly other cameras and especially Canon. so I see by either looking all the time or by hanging out with these guys, you have picked it up immediately. You certainly are a quick learn! Very nicely done.
In envy,

Hi Joe,
i missed this one! mmmm....what have we here, another landscape i see? Very nicely done my friend, you have got some superb colour in the clouds here, as only morning can generate. I'm impressed by the evenness of the exposure here without grads - i'm guessing you lightened levels a tad to get the detail in the FG Grasses? A very nice composition too mate - but be careful, you'll end up at all sorts of remote places at the wrong end of the day at this rate :o)
well done.

Hello Joe,
What a fabulous landscape capture and such as change coming from you! I love the vertical composition creating depth and the grasses in the foreground. Wonderful colours and cloud formations leaving their reflections in the smooth water. Brilliant! You ought to take the same picture at different times - it would make a splendid series!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Good on ya Joey, excellent capture with an amazing tone in the sky. Best Regards Steve..
