Morning Trekingtons,

I took this at dawn a couple of days ago, the soft dawn light reflecting off the resivior was something i wanted to capture, and I really like these tress in silhouette so I combined* the two and was quite pleased with the result.

I want to say a thanks to Markus (Heaven) for his valuable advice on picture quality and resizing, cheers mate.

Take care


* to answer rythmtheives question ,I do very little PP work due to incompitance than anything.

Trekingtons? lol like that.. watch this space everyone will be using it.

Nice capture here my friend. I love the soft tones and the gentle change in colour on the water.

Glad you got the re sizing sorted

TFS regards Helen

Bonjour Tom,
Magnifique ce dégradé rose/violet, cela donne un très beau tableau avec ces branches à contre-jour
Bonne journée


Belle photo de contre jour, beau travail.. Bravo.. Réal.

Good shot. Could maybe have worked better with greater DoF, but I like the effect of the soft misty light off the water. The tree gives it a nice focal point. When you say you combined the two was that PP work or was this what you saw at the time?

Very nice, simple, very apealing with the monochromatic tone. Good diagonal comp.

Take care, Yan :)

Hi Tom,

I like very much this job. It's wonderful.

(*) green faces tomorrow

This looks almost like a drawing and aquarelle. Great detail and contrast, I like the soft monochromatic colour of the backround. Beautiful.

Hello Tom,
Beautiful image. Nice framing and great POV.
Terrific colors. Very effective:)

Bonsoir Trom,
On dirait une estampe japonaise et c’est très ravissant. Belle composition simple et raffinée!
