Lovely use of wide angle and great exposure control. The tones throughout are really spot on and no OE in the clouds which have a great feeling of drama as the rain approaches. Really a nice shot.

Hi Jean..this is a great shot..wonderful tones in the sky...great composition.


I love it. Beautiful landscape. Mood of the sky and relactions are superb.

Beautiful sky! It just stands out. Your composition is good except for the sky and foreground being equal. I can see that you might have considered the reflection in the water to be important. I still would have included more sky. With that kind of drama you have to include more... It is still a stunning sky!

A really stunning view Jean Yves.
A wonderful capture, specially the light and colors are amazing.

Mood captured well. The diagonals and reflections lead the eye well. Would you please share your Post processing steps. Thank you in advance. Karin

Bonjour Jean-Yves,
Quelle atmosphère!
Les couleurs du ciel sont absolument exquises! Et leurs réflections sur le lac nous les font apprécier doublement.
Superbe composition! Bravo! Annie

Hi Jean Yves,
Great capture of this landscape. Superb clouds above it, indeed, loaded with rain. Very quiet at this moment, I guess.
Splendid capture of the atmosphere. Good colors and sharpness. TFS.

Hi Jean Yves,
Wonderful colors, POV and texture. I just love the green trees standing in between the clouds and the water!
