Hello Otto,
great mountain river landscape that reminds me of alpine scenes that I am hopefully going to visit very soon, too. With a perfectly chosen low point of view you have created a very powerful image! Excellent, very inviting.
Thank you! With best regards,

Hi Otto,
You got an excellent landscape here!
It's pretty good and dynamic all the power shown by this river, and you take good advantage of it in building this great composition.
It's very good the way the pines are displayed both sides of the image.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

What a spectacular nature scene Otto. The crystal clear water looks just superb and the distant views to the mountains are wonderful. Glorious.

Hi Otto, how's it going?

After going through your TrekNature gallery, I selected this one for critique, a landscape. I tend to select landscapes, because I'm more familiar with the genre. I like to do landscape photography myself. My critique would be most certainly positive: I really like this one. The composition is very good, well-balanced. It's color neutral, free of casts, with good saturation on the colors. Has action in it, (the running water), and plenty of detail. It's got everything a good landscape needs. Very nice scenery, we don't have something like that here.

Well done, TFS.

Best regards, Dimitri.
