[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I do realize that this image isn't as sharp as it could be and it had some noise which I tried to reduce. If I had just a little less pride I would post the original as a workshop. I was waiting for my husband. It was after dark. I had no tripod and was just playing around. I intended to delete this but somehow didn't. When an almost totally black image came up on my computer, I, just for fun, hit "highlights and shadows". Imagine my surprise at finding this. I do like the composition and colors. Oh the wonders of Photoshop!

Hi Evelynn,

I think you should post the origional. It would complement your note...;-)

It is nice to be pleasantly surprised! The out-of-focus trees in the background have an interesting texture and really make the foreground standout.



That is awesome how the lake reflection makes the background.

Good job.

I do love this scene, Evelynn.
There is a magic quality to it.
The composition is such that one is made to feel there is another realm beyond the water.
The colors and forms in the foreground are just lovely.
TFS. : )

Great colours and light in this autumn picture. Good composition too.

Hello Evelynn,
A beautiful composition, including this pleasant forest scenery!
Autumn coloursare evident and contrasting well the evergreens...
You created a fairytale atmosphere!

Hi Evelyn...
I like the way you photographed things here.
Often you see the tree(s) are going out of the image in the upper part. Here not so.
Well done

Hi Evelynn!
Beautiful photo... I like the colours, as in all your pics... However I miss the blue blue sky... :-)
Anyway, here the green background is somehow strange, but great!!
Thanks, enrico.

I love all the colors! Well worth posting and well worth your efforts on fixing it up! TFS
Donna :o)


Again a very nice autumn view, the effect mirror of the water is very god!


Hi Evelynn,
The softness created by the noise reduction created a dreamy like effect to the entire composition. Finally, I see some water in your photos again. This time you used it pefectly, to create this really interesting reflection as a BG.

Hello Evelynn,
Magnificent landscape.I liked POV,colors,3d effect,visual impact and composition a lot."Highlights and shadows"is a magic tool of Photoshop but costs a lot of noise many times:)

Preciosa composición. Bellos colores de un lugar que transmite paz. Buen encuadre y nitidez estupenda.
Muchos saludos, JL.

This is a great image. The fg has me on the edge of saying "stunning." But the bg seems upside down to me, and just seems weird. I like the final effect a lot, but it does seem a bit surreal.

Hello Evelynn, this is a good result for H&S on a very dark image. As y9ou say it's not the sharpest but the colours look good. Well done.
