the reflection is just perfect. Cloud and water proportion is good.

wow!! excelent landscape photo;-)

What an interesting photograph. The reflections and colors seem to make the image dissolve as you move to the background. Yet, in actuality the image is very sharp. I really like it. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful reflections! Very sharp details and beautiful scenery. Well done! I love the mood of this canadian lakes!

Bonjour Joseph,
Quelle vue magnifique! Cet endroit semble très paisible. Très belle composition avec ces nuages qui se reflètent dans l'eau. Jolies couleurs et beau point de vue. Continuez de nous ravir avec vos magnifiques paysages!

Bonjoue Joseph !
Wow, quel paysage fantastique ! La composition et le POV sont magnifiques, et ce ciel nuageux donne une ambiance sombre et dramatique à la photo. La réflection dans l'eau est parfaite, et j'aimbebeaucoup cette branche morte qui dépasse de l'eau. Vraiment magnifique, félicitations !

This is lovely Joseph,
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. POV is great.
Well composed and nicely framed.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.

Hi Joseph

Well done on a great shot. Well composed, good POV and clarity and sharpness are spot on. :-)

This landscape falls into the category of art work by virtue of its composition and placement of objects within the frame, especially the piece of dry wood standing in the water the surface of which is like an interesting canvas formed by the rippling effect.

Hello Joseph,
Beautiful classical landscape composition!
To see a big lake like this as calm as here is a real treat...
Great colours and fine details!

Hi Joseph,
Woow, beautiful. I love everything about this shot, the calm water with the lone branch, the sky and that amazing reflection, the colours. What I like most though is the hardest thing to capture, and that's the mood. It's a very atmospheric shot, it's easy to imagine being there. A beautiful and very accomplished shot, excellent work.

Hi Joseph,
This is very good. A cloudy day that brought you beautiful colors and the filter added the right touch of blue. The dead piece of wood sticking out of the water is well positioned to have it as a focal object that allows the viewer to wander through the photo toward the shoreline and further onward toward the end of this beautiful lake.

Hello Joseph!
Bardzo udana fotka. Przepiekny krajobraz.
Great work!

Hi Joseph,

I just love the reflections and the composition. Well done & TFS!


Hello Joseph,
I like the mood created in this shot, with the reflection seen and gathering sky.
Excellent detail, color, and nice depth to the composition as well. The eye is drawn to the branch in the water..I think its relative minimal size adds interest to the frame and artfully so. It's impact is subjective though..and with some the verdict may still be out ;)
Very well done.

C'est beau, c'est beau, c'est beau. Merci Joseph de nous présenter ce si beau coin du Québec.
Je crois qu'il faut avoir l'âme en paix pour réussir une si telle photo, afin de transmettre ce même état d'âme aux visiteurs de TN.
Les 9 et 10 août je serai à St-Fulgence.


Love the tranquility of this scene Joseph. Very well done.

Heureux mélange que tous ces éléments.
Bonne journée.

Paisaje umbroso, melancólico, casi fantasmagórico Joseph.

Gracias por compartirla con TN.

Wow, this is exquisite!
Fantastic cloud formation giving a moody light over the scene. Great composition, especially the tree branch. I like the way the water appears to have no horizon. 9/10 - would have been even better with dead calm water!

C'est vraiment Ferland-Boilleau. Magnifique même s'il y a des nuages et moins de soleil... D'un gars natif de Ferland-Boilleau.
