[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a photo of Mount Moran, named for the artist Thomas Moran, with Leigh Lake in the foreground. It is one of the string of glacial moraine lakes along the base of the Tetons. I used a minus 1 1/3 compensation and personally like the UE silhouetted foreground tree. I'm sure there are those out there that have objections. If it were just a undefined black shape I suppose I wouldn't like it, but I do like the defined shape of the tree.

Hello Evelynn,
This is a good one!
Rich saturated colours of summer, pleasant composition where you use the lighting to your advantage...
Great details!

I like this shot very much. I really like the peacefulness of it all.

This is anohter nice forest detail. It works for me, too. The tree in siloutee works is fine as it is. But it's so dark I wonder if you can't adjust the curves to give it just a bit of color without affecting the rest of the shot. Then maybe the anti-black folkis would be off your back and you could still have the same shot and compo. Funny, though, this feels just a bit tight, but I think it's just because I've been looking through my 10mm and other 10mm shots so much lately...

The colors of the lake are stunning.
Everything is so clear.... water, air.
A beautiful composition.
TFS. : )

Comme c'est beau...Bravo
Bonne journée.

Hi Evelynn!!! This is trully a beautiful landscape, well done!!!

well you have capped it off really nicely - what a beauty. you have a wonderful picture here and have framed it really nicely. Excellent composition and I too like the darker tree in the foreground. It helps not to detract from the rest of the picture and makes you look into the picture adding a nice sense of depth...

Very nicely done and if more than a smiley was available you would be getting more from me...


Hello evelynn, excellent work, great details, excllent reflection, perfect colors, great work, TFS Kyle

What a dramatic picture ! Good vertical features. Nice POV and DOF. The trees are long and they reflect nicely on the pond. The mountain in the back also gives nice vertical dimension to this picture. The blue sky ilso nice.

Hi Evelynn,
You got yourself a winner here. The view is really stunning. I like the silhoutted tree and it is not claming attention at all. Slowly I am seeing the difference between you photos made with the Panasonic and with the Canon. The later has just more details in the MG. I am glad you are posting this many shots of Teton, because my view of the park was so different then it is now.

Hello Evelynn , very nice composition of this beautiful scene. Accurate exposure and sharp details make for an excellent capture, well done.

Another masterpiece from this lovely park. I love the dark blue of the sky and the small area of the lake showing, it seems a very well balanced view of this dramatic scenery!

Hey Evelynn,
Nice job on framing this one. I like the dark tree on the right and the brighter trees/mountain in the background. Gives it a different feel than most landscape shots.

Honestly my friend I loved it all; the tree in the F/G, the
trees in the back, THE "REFLECTION" OF THESE TREES captured on the tiny lake and the mountain. When I was younger I would have climbed this one too. Am far too old
Anyway this is another of your GREAT images. TFS.
Best regards, Mario.
