Hello TL , here my *Lake View* from India

India , my country, has so much 'jewels in the box' it would take 10 life times to show here in TL

Let me finalyse the main topics for you:

*This is the Pangong Lake, situated at 14,000 feet (4,267 m). Pangong, which means extensive concavity.
A long narrow basin of inland drainage, hardly six to seven kilometer at its widest point and over 130km long, it is bisected by the international border between India and China.
*You can pick pebbles from under the water and if you are lucky enough a fossil shell in the clay deposits may be a rewarding find.
The discovery of these fossils have led geologists to believe that in some remote period, the water of the lake must have been fresh and lively.

*The mirror calm water is cold, clear and extremely salty, holding sufficient quantity of lime to form a calcareous deposit, which cements the pebbles together in patches of concrete on its bank. It is believed that there are a large number of minerals in the basin of the lake, which result from the melting of the snow.

A part of India Folks, my Country!

Thanks for your time

Hi vandana,

Very nice shot ! Composition and lighting are perfect. Reflection is a must here !
Your country is wonderful !

Stunning! Beautiful sharpness and saturation, excellent capture of the stones beneath the water's surface.
I can't help thinking that the shot would look better if it was rotated 2 or 3 degrees anticlockwise to make the shoreline appear 'level' in the distance - there is a slight sense of the horizon being skewed, even though it's just an illusion.
Regardless of that small point, this is such a breathtaking shot - truly stunning. Thank you for sharing it!

Amazing shot Vandana Ilov the colors and the rfelections. So sharp and well composed.

Really beautiful scene! Love the clarity & color of the water.

Hi Vandana,
A lifetime would not be long enough to capture the beauty that is to be found in your country.
Enjoyed your picture. So if I say TFS it's not just a standard remark - I thank you.

Lovely view. I like the mirrored reflections in the water.

Hi Vandana,
What a view. Such a clear water and such awesome mountains. I love the way the refelction is distorted by the ripples in the water. The intens blue color really fits the view. Do watch out with sharpening the photo, there are some artifacts along the edge of the mountian range.

Great work, good colors and details!well done!

Hi Vandana,
Absolutely stunning beauty! This is a striking image for its clarity, colour and POV. You have composed the shot wonderfully as well. Certainly a view one doesn't see often enough of India. Well done. Cheers, Todd

Gorgeous! I love how the shoreline curves so that the photo isn't bisected by it. DId you find any fossils?

Beautiful picture you shooted here, Vandana.
Very well presented.

Stunning photo Vandana! Brilliant colors, clarity and DOF, the composition is fantastic, thanks for sharing,

I would'nt do anything because it looks more natural like this. At my proffessional postings, there were many photographers who suggested that 2 point tilt is natural, and does nor affcet the viewing.
Every one has already said most things, so I would simply argree to with all!
Most excellent work.

Excellent coloured presentation Vandana.
Picture is good arrected. Excellent compsoitin. Great atmosphere. Very well done. Tfs. Stev

Salut Vandana

Cette photo est de toute beauté... J'ai le goût d'aller y pêcher et de me détendre sur le bord de l’eau.


Spectacular photo with many textures and angles (the mountains, blue sky, reflections on the water, the rocks beneath the surface). Great depth. Absolutely beautiful.

Beautiful photo Vandana. I love all of the reflections. I like how you got a whole circle of mountains instead of just one part of the mountain. The water is so clear. I like the frame too. TFS

Really nice POV and colors. It looks a bit tilted, but you really captured the essence of that place. The details of the reflection are amazing, and the blue sky almost looks surealist...
Well done

Superb shot Vandana... I loved it..



Wow, wow, wow ... is that OK if I won't say anything else? :)

P.S. The horizon is tilted...

Hi Vandana

This is really wonderful picture, excellent composition, good dof and extraordinary sharpness, i love the blue colur with reflection.

Good job



beautiful place

Hi Vandana!
Blue colour makes photo cold.I like reflections and composition.

Hi Vandana,
What a stunnig scenery..Colours, reflect and frame are superb.Very well done.TFS.


Great shot - so wonderfully clear. Love the colors and reflections of the snowcaps in the water.

Hi Vandana,

A beautiful view you have captured here my friend, detail is amazing as are the reflections and the cooler colours.

I do spot a tilt to the right though?

You can correct this if you have Photoshop or similar by using a level correction tool (In Photoshop the lens correction tool) on the horizontal or vertical axis. If I'm not sure using the horizontal tool on the water level I always try to double check when there is a reflection in any water by using the vertical axis tool, these together can normaly give a good medium between the two resulting in a level horizon.

Still a fantastic capture


So Van .. here we hace the champ? Well its a stunning shot , perfection all around. Congatulations, but for me your'e self even contain more beauty :-) Bye

Hi Vandana,
It's amazing landscape shot with great colors and good composition. Wonderful point of view and perspective, fantastic reflection of the mountains in the water.
