[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I went on a camping trip for the last week and a half, and the Okanagan in B.C. is always a great place to be. First stop on our trip was Vernon, and we only ended up staying for one night, because the campsite that they gave us was smaller than the shoulder of most highways. Don't recommend Dutch's campground. Anyways, I woke up there and it was really early, like 5:00 a.m., but I couldn't sleep so I headed down to Kalamalka lake. It was still a while before the sun was going to peak over the mountains, so I decided to head back and pack up our stuff, hoping to find another campsite there, but it didn't happen.
Hope you like the shot.

Hi Dave:Interesting lighting and exposure on this one,nice sunset colours and the symetry is very interesting , the seagulls add a little humour as well......thanks Dave .Roman:0)

Hello Dave,
I think that the image could be a bit sharper, and the colors could be more vibrant, but a good POV.

  • Great

Dave I found your POV on this most interesting, good use of the wide angle aspect of your lens.

Hi there!
A great shot, well worth the effort of getting up so early!
I like the DOF, and your composition is excellent. Would have been nicer without the birds I think, but nevertheless a good shot!
Well done!

hey dave, awesome shot, love the composition and exposure, did you use a n/g filter? looks like it and it looks amazing, great thinking for a composition which makes the title.,
thanks scott

Hi Dave
What you mean *dont reccommend Dutch Campground? * :-)_
The photo''to be honest I have seen a few like this before .. but you handled well.
Now .. try next time to remember the photograph rule of lead-in lines.
See the Workshop .. maybe you pick up an idea,
My friend.. welldone and compliment of a Dutchman *__*

Hi Dave.Intersting coposition with those seagulls .nice view too.TFS

Hi Dave

Beautiful capture, I like pier!
I like the capture, of the colors and of the horizon, wonderful!
The seagulls in the tip of the pier give a show the part.


Dave this province isn't big enough for the two of us ;-)
I suppose we could come to some understanding...perhaps you be B.C's Canon guy and I'll represent Nikon. All kidding aside, I love this shot. First, good for you for getting up so early (Something I'm incapable of). The composition and the lighting are great here. Great use of the vertical format as well. I love the gulls at the end of the dock and the 'Shallow Water' really leads us into the frame. Nice work.
