This is my 100th posting in TrekNature! Never thought I’d make that number…

100 is no big deal but I like to take this opportunity to thank you all for advice, support, encouragement, but above all for a lot of fun!

No 1 was posted on November 8 last year with the title “RESIN”, and I received the very first comment from Steven Shaver (Shaver), who told me this is crap..! I never get that kind of comments anymore, so I guess I’ve learned something..?

Again… Thank you all!!

Hi Pablo,
this looks georgeous. Excellent POV and great lighting. Very well seen and captured.
Congrats on your 100th post!

Hi, Pablo.
Congratulations on 100th post. Beautiful place and very nice evening light. Good DOF.

Enhorabuena y felicidades por tu foto número 100.
Hermosa panorámica la de hoy. Agradable.
Buena nitidez y preciosa vista.
Un saludo amigo. JL.

Hi Pablo,
Superb landscape shot. impressive colours. Very well composed.Best regards..


Hello Pablo, great compo with good colors.
Excellent light, too:

Those vertical reflections on the water in the forground look like bold strokes from the brush of a fearless artist, Pablo. Van Gogh, maybe?
Then there are those lovely horizontal lines of colour formed by the drying weed, still water and more weed at the far end.
Steven Shaver must eat his words after seeing images like this. Curiosity will take me to your first post, though.
Thanks for yet another lovely image of your country before the long winters, my friend.
PS: I have seen your first picture. Have a look at my comment :-).
And many congratulations on your 100th post!

Hi Pablo,
Congratulation for your 100th post! Impossible to find something wrong in it. So many different light in the water, wonderful reflection, calm everywhere,... Reed in the water remember me my childhood when I swam among them in a river. A very beatiful place that increase the charming of your part of the world.

felicidades Pablo y espero muchos éxitos para ti,genial foto y precioso habitat, buenas luces. saludos y buena semana.

Hi Pablo,

Yes, I think many of us have progressed with our photography skills thanks to the generous spirit of so many here at TN. One thing I admire in your work here and on TL is that you so often have a great range of values in your pictures as well as strong saturated colors. There is nothing "wishy washy" about your images. I too am looking forward to the next 100!

Hi Pablo,
Congratulations on your 100th post, and thanks for sharing your view of the world through TN.

This is again a stunning image, with great use of shadows and light. I like the overall fall color tones and the subtle reflection on the water.

Hi Pablo

Splendid landscape you have here! Congratulation on you 100th picture! It really is a splecial one :)
I especially like the framing here, with the FG and water occupting most of the entire frame. Intersting idea that works really well here!
Also geat are the colors and the exposure, making this evening light look very impressive and giving so much feeling and emotion to the shot.
Lovely work with the framing an the composition, too.

Bravo, TFS and hope to see manyyyyyyy moooore :)

Wow this is stunning. The colours are just wonderful. Warm and autumnal. I love the composition, great details right through the photo. Nice POV and light as well

Congratulations on your 100th post!


hi pablo
j'ai l'impression de vous avez beaucoup de lac pres de cher vous,la surface de l'eau est toujours tres calme,c'est apaissant.

Hi my dear friend Pablo;great frame and shot,beatiful colors.
Note:Sevgili Pablo seninle su an balik tutuyoruz bu golde.)

Nice landscape shot Pablo, I like it for its late light effect and reflections I see. Great detail, color, DOF, and an overall pleasing composition :)
Congratulations on 100 posts, and thank you for all your comments/contributions to this site.
Well done & TFS!

Hi Pablo
Félicitation pour ta 100ième prise de vue avec ce beau paysage automnal et ses jolies couleurs et ce beau marécages.La composition avec ce foin a canards est superbe.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Two remarkable lines of GOLD registered on this venture. The "reflections" are so mirror like. Looks
like a painting with BOLD STROKES.
F.A.N.T.A.S.T.I.C. landscaping, my dear friend.

Hi Pablo, Unusual colouring and low light which gives a very good feeling to see this quiet place. I like the vertical grasses in the foreground. Good perspective. Murray.

Congrats on #100, Pablo. I really like the image because you have chosen to concentrate on the reeds here, while the overall lake and its setting are only implied here, they are still clearly beautiful. (The short version is "great choice of details!")

Hi Pablo,
You have captured the scene in its sublime beauty.The reflection looks great and enhances the beauty of the shot.

Pablo, this one is a crap! ;) (Ha!Ha!)
Seriouslly, this picture have lots of details. Good foreground, lots of water plants. Like the kind of strait grass coming out of the water. With the refelxion, it is hard to see where they stick out of the surface. The only thing is that I find the picture just a bit dark.

Hi Pablo,
First, congratulations for you 100th post. This is an impressive number! LOL, I have to see this first post of yours if it is still there :-) Second, I must say that I really like this beautiful composition and POV. This is very nice with excellent natural colors, details and DOF. It looks like a hidden place :) Thanks,

Hello Pablo !
Congratluation for your 100 photos, they are all very beautiful. On this one I really like the reflection in the water and the stalks of grass on the lake. Very beautiful autumn colors, excellent composition and POV. Very well done !

Hi Pablo,
First congratulations on your 100th post. When I started here I felt like I would never get that far. This shot is excellent. Very well composed and framed. You managed the exposure well. Colors and detail look great. Great quality light is showing he fall coloring well.
