'Mrs jackal' always complains that I never take photographs with people in them when we are on holiday - so here it is.

They say this is the most photographed lake in Canada - Lake Louise and judging by the six car parks I am sure they are right. Its a 'must see' when in the Rockies but go early.

Hi Jack,
I like the POV for this mountain scape and your wife enjoying this panorama. She is wisely put there to obtain such a depth into the perspective.
The lovely lake is just marvelous and the mountain is glorious topped by a dramatic sky adorned with good light and enhanced by the HDR treatment you adapted.
Very neat work.
My best regards,

Hi Jack,

What a wonderful shot from a breathtaking landscape with amazing light!
You got a clear day for catching the beauty of this place professionally.
The sharpness and POV are well done, and centered placement of your wife admiring the charm and majesty of this place is well thought.
Great work!

Thanks and regards,

Hello Jack,
Interesting to see a mountain in far front has snow and nearer are still green. Turquoise tone of the lake is depicting clarity of water. Luminosity if beautifully caught into lense that gives the feel of scattered clouds. Excellent shot, well done. Thanks for sharing.
Best Regards,

Nice composition...
Have a nice weekend...

Awesome composition and I'm glad you included Mrs. Jackal in the picture, somehow it made the image more real. Love the colors of the sky and the water. Great dof with sharp details. Very well done, tfs.
