One picture of mountainous landscape, to change.
This is the lake where I've taken my previous picture of the Common Toad.
Taken at the rising sun, with a ND grad.
Hope you like it.

Hello Emmanuel,
A superb wide-angle composition with rich foreground. The reflection is very nice. Excellent demo of effective use of neutral grad filter.
Best wishes,

You chose a nice subject for that wide angle lens. The sharp foreground elements and reflections are so interesting. I would like to see a few more details in the far hills. I tried a workshop just for fun.

Hi Emmanuel

As i said before, this is a superb photo!
The attention you gave to the details of the FG here is impressive and really eye-catchy :) They really complement all the other elements of the somposition here very well, making an amazing look overall.
The use of the ND grad was a very good idea here and it makes all the tones be so nicely balanced. The reflection in the calm water is also magnificent.
What a superb habitat for that lovely Bufo bufo (which i saw but i didn't have enough time to tell you :( )

Bravo and TFS

most beautiful, very silent and secret place.
Excellent presentation of enormous depth and convincing power.
Thank you! With best regards,
