that's such a wonderful place and you also had beautiful waether. I like the snowy mountains and the blue sky, together with the water-reflection it's a perfect shot, thanks

Just beautiful, Niek.
That is a picture to meditate to... or on... : )
Such a serene scenery...
I think the sky and water colors are perfect.
Perfect light and smoothness on the river.
The trees are crisp and well saturated, the mountains mystical-looking.
A magnificent scenery. TFS. : )
this is perfect - just wonderful.... can't give you any more than that... other than another favourite.

Crystal clear image, I can almost feel the oxygen pour out from the screen as I view this fantastic image. Thanks Niek, for your input. :)

What a beautiful capture Niek! Great clarity of image and I love the mirrored reflection. I would personally have lowered the composition so as not to clip the reflection of the tree and balance composition more. Very well done.

I do rather like this landscape version Niek. Personally I would have pointed the camera a bit lower to get less sky and a bit more FG, but what you have here is quite impressive.

Cette prise est magnifique,les couleurs sont parfaitement exposé et les détails sont bons.
I like it, Niek! I like it a lot. It's a great combination of elements, well exposed, and I like the way the composition leads my eye back and forth through the middle ground of the scene.
So I am consistent about the kind of crop I like. Would I have driven you nuts if I asked for more fg or more sky? ;-)

Definitly this is a wonderful scenery. Very well captured, rich colors and excellent clarity. The reflexion is superb. Perhaps less sky for composition. But I prefer Oxbow Bend II...
Congratulations Niek and thanks for sharing this pleasure for eyes.

This is very beautiful. I prefer it to the portrait one.
Composition is excellent, and the near perfect reflection is great.

Me gusta esta composición Niek, por el POV, por la belleza de la reflexión lograda y por el contraste de colores bien marcados por áreas de la imagen... el agua y cielo azules, los verdes de las arboledas y follaje y los suaves tonos de las montañas y sus manchones de nieve.
Una bonita imagen, sin dudas.
I like this composition Niek, by POV, for the beauty of the achieved reflection and for the contrast of colors well marked by areas of the image... the water and sky blues, the greens of the groves and foliage and the soft tones of the mountains and their spots of snow.
A beautiful image, without doubts.

The reflections are in just the right places and the foreground/background combination is wonderful! Great light control too.

Prachtige foto, beter dan de verikale. Mooie weerspiegeling, de bocht in de rivier trekt je blik mee naar het midden van de foto en de bergen op de achtergrond.
This is a very nice postcard with great colours, fantastic reflections in the water and good DOF :)
On the other hand it si pitty that you cut a lower part of picture (it would be great to see "full" reflections of the forest). It would be easy to to if you cut some part of sky :)
Anyway, very nice picture.
