[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another picture I took at Vintgar Soteska Gorge.

I took this picture early in the morning when this beautiful gorge still had a lot of mountain dew. The Vintgar Soteska Gorge is 1,6 Km long and the river Radovna is running through it. This gorge is located 4 km noth-west of the well know town Bled. The gorge was accidentally discovered by Jakob Žumer, the Major of Gorje, and the cartographer and photographer Benedikt Lergetporer in February 1891.

Dit is een mooie, had ik nog niet gezien

What a beautiful, mystical place. It looks like it is lit from beneath. Great capture!


Great spot, beautiful place. Very nice picture!

lovely picture - I've had a quick play with it - see what you think...

Beautiful place. The water looks so peaceful... I like the effect of the sun rays. Regards, Yvonne

Hi Niek,
I like this photo of yours very much. But as I was looking, I thought it could have been better. There are some comments I would like to make. I think it is too bright, needs contast and color adjustments and a frame. I did all that in the workshop. I hope you like it.
Best Regards,

Accidently discovered? Meaning they went for a swim? I like this picture for its rays and mood. I wish it had better DOF though. F2.8 is not usually a good choice for landscape work since you are trying to capture as much as possible in all areas of the frame. If you need the light use a higher ISO and try to get as high of an F-stop as your lens and camer can handle. Image stabilization is a great help with allowing one to photograph sharp images at otherwise unusable shutter speeds.

I think the focus is a bit off, but the mood of the picture is wonderful. The rays of light are really beautiful, and the hazy looking water looks so welcoming. I think the brightness and contrast should be adjusted (lower brightness, higher contrast).. and maybe more saturated colors. Nice shot!

Beautiful light!!! well done!

Very nice usage of the sun light there. Excelent composition

J'aime beaucoup ces effets de lumičre.Ce n'est pas facile ŕ capturer. Dommage que les rochers soit un peu trouble .
