You got such a beautiful landscape image with perfect motionless lake for a near perfect reflection. Great light with rich colors of the rock and sky and forest, some are seem a bit too dark but I guess it’s okay it make the mountain standout well. The flowers and rocks in the foreground make the composition better than it would have been because everything are place too much in the center both horizontally and vertically. And a big welcome to TN.

The reflection and foreground rocks are really nice in your photo, Paul. I suspect that your image lost a bit of saturation on the upload. Be sure to convert to sRGB color if it was take with RGB color space. The composition may have been a little more dynamic if it weren't divided right in half both vertically and horizontally. As popular as Maroon Bells is, I don't think I've seen a photo of it on TN. I skipped going there when I was in Colorado last fall because it is so popular that it is sometimes hard to get to. Do you live near there? I am always glad to see another landscaper on TN as there are not many of us here. I'm looking forward to more from you.

hi Paul,
this is a very nice landscape, great comosition and great colours, I also lke the reflection, bravo
best regards

Wonderful landscape image you are showing us here Paul.
Love the stilness of the water and the reflections very much.
The flowers in the foreground and the rock in the water brings in beautiful depth.
Seems like there is some kind of a red color cast in the image though.
Can be easely adjusted iby using the curves option of PS.
Also would like to have seen a little more color saturation.
Nevertheless a real joy to look at.

Best regards and have a nice weekend,
