Hi Jeanpaul
How are you?
I love your forest landscape with the reflection of the trees in the water. A very well composed scene full of nice textures and colour.
TFS Janice

One of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen. It is a place of my dreams....I could live and die here...I assume you do not winter it out? Your image is #1 in my books. Leaves a lot to the imagination and so man questions!

Bonjour Jean-Paul,
Beautiful image without doubt, quiet and peaceful. The scene's majestic with the spruce forest and its clear reflection on the water. The photo's top class, although the canvas is distracting, seems too much complicated. A simple black - white would have been better choice in my opinion. But the photo itself shows paradise on Earth.
Merci, best regards, László

Hola jeanpaul

Preciosa composición de este maravilloso paraje, con esa agua cristalina y esos reflenos que parecen un espejo. Fantastico.

Un saludo de Antonio

Bonjour Jean-Paul,
A fine well-composed capture of your area, a wilderness in Quebec. The lighting and colours are excellent and the reflections in the trees in the absolutely calm water of the lake make the image very attractive.
Merci por le partage,

Ciao Jeanpaul, lovely and peaceful composition with fascinating reflections, wonderful natural colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Jean,

Very serene landscape, anyone would fall in love with your paradise. The still water is creating a true mirror like reflection.

Bonjours JeanPaul,

C'est comme ca que j'imagine Canada.Je vouldrait bien pecher dans ce lac magnifique.

Tres jolie composition.



Bonsoir Jean-Paul,

Les réflexions sur l'eau du lac sont des atouts à la composition. La prise de vue envoie mon regqard vers les arbres en arrière-plan ce qui donne de la profondeur au paysage. La lumière du matin a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

Hi Jean-Paul.
It is really small paradise. And you have presented it very artistically. POV as well as pictured forest and lake, if I am not mistaken, are amazing. Clarity of the image is also exceptional. Well done and TFS.

Hi Jeanpaul,

A superb and inspiring scene capture MF! Excellent clarity for a hand-held shot at that shutter speed, the exposure looks fantastic. Amazing reflections on the glass-like water with great composition.
TFS and have a nice night/weekend MF!


bonjour Jeanpaul
ton petit coin de paradis est vraiment superbe ! c'est fort et paisible à la fois,
un point de vue remarquable, une grande finesse des détails, une parfaite réfléction dans l'eau, en tout, une image de très grande classe
merci et bon Week-end

A great place to charge the batteries indeed!
Seems like unspoiled by humans, with the lovely little lake in the midst of the evergreen forest...
A pleasant composition with a great sense of depth, the calm water reflects the surroundings well!
