[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“A time to relax” is the name of this photograph and it was taken on a walk in the deep woods. After a difficult walk over some snow filled paths, we still have snow in the woods, I managed to sit by this lake and enjoy the scenery. The many kinds of birds were singing wildly, just like on a meditation CD, however they sounded more natural. While sitting on a rock, I took several photographs.
Just before I got to this lake, I had to walk through deep snow and my camera was safely in my pack. I would never take a chance and walk in deep snow with my camera in hand; unfortunately by being safe you miss some wonderful photographic opportunities.
After the rest and finishing my little picnic I continued on my journey.
It was a very pleasant way to spend the morning.
This photograph was Level adjusted, and saved for the web.

I love the atmosphere in this picture, but it could be sharper...

When I walk through snow, sometimes I have the camera out sometimes not, it depends on the weather and what the snow is like. Sometimes it is worth the risk, but only on the dry days. Otherwise I stop, take several photographs and put the camera back in the rucksack. Alternatively a little point and shot, digital that can sit in a fleece pocket and came be pulled out very easily is also very useful. I always walk with both cameras...



Hi Jim,
Another great photo with a lovely scenery. I agree with Emma on the sharpness.

When are you going to give critique to photos again. You started doing it but your last one is from march 06. If you want to learn and get more critique to your photos, you need to put more effort on TN then only posting.
