[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken from Battery Point in Haines, Alaska. Haines is located in the beautiful fiord country of southeast Alaska on the Lynn Canal.
In November it is the site of one of the largest gatherings of American Bald Eagles. I have not been there in November but it is said this small village becomes quite a tourist mecca with myriads of photographers jockeying for position!

I think Niek is right...photo looks a little off horizontal!

Hi Evelynn,
This is too beautifull!! That's why it's added to my favorits. All aspects of this photo are excellent. I do feel it needs a little rotation to the left even if the horizon is straight. Now it feels like the water is flowing to the right.

BTW, your link on Haines didn't show up.

Hi Evelynn,
Beautiful scene! It looks a wonderful place, I like the way you've used the trees that far across, I'm not too good on landscapes but I think it's an uncommon approach. Have to agree, the lake is running downhill at the moment :) I've posted a workshop to level it, hope you like it.

Hi Evelynn,
This seems to be a very pittoresc place.
Great landscape, a good look through on the iced mountains. Very fresh natural colours. I agree with you what the horizon concerned. Aido's workshop shows us.
Nevertheless a very nice picture. Well done.
Thx and regards, Ruud

This is such a gorgeous place, Evelynn. You are really lucky to have been in so many places of exceptional beauty. I just know that if I could spend some time in the middle of this picture of serenity, my life would be all centered and balanced.
You have such a knack for composition. Great capture of this scenery. Thanks for sharing these unbelievable places with us. : )

Hi Evelynn,
Very quick visit.
Well worth a big Smile.
Thanks for posting, have a great weekend.

Nice postcard. Very sharp and clear.


Hello Evelynn,

Unless there is a major highway next to the FG of this amazing image, that is where I will pitch my tent...

Excellent details, colors, POV, and composition.

A fine posting, thank you!

Hi Evelynn, yes, what a super scene, composed so well. I like how Adrian has evened it up with his WS. I like seeing the trees and the mountains are all pointing up to the sky. Well done, TFS

Hi Evelynn,
Very great picture of a splendid landscape.
I like so much.

I've never been to Alaska. I agree with Niek that the rotation is off, but other than that the image is perfect. Beautiful colors, nice exposure, and a beautiful arragement of subjects (sky, ground, trees, etc). Nice!

I love your landscapes. I love the differences in layers of DOF. From the walkway, to the trees, to the water, to the mountains and then the sky and clouds. Very very beautiful.

A very easy comment:
Everything is PERFECT, the focusing, the framing, the notes, the composition.
I can "see" that you took GREAT CARE to make this event a PICTURE PERFECT POSTCARD type image. Congratlations.
Best regards,
