[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fern lake at Rocky Mountain National Park. I will post another shot I like better another time. The silly little cloud above the mountain is distracting to me but I really loved this view. Especially after hiking a couple hours to get here. I was the only person at the lake for about an hour before other people showed up so it was a very tranquil place to be.

Hi Jim,
a well chosen PoV with the rocks and grass in the FG though I may have cropped a little from both sides to remove the OE clouds and the tip of the tree on the right, the exposure is spot on for the lake and trees but perhaps a grad ND filter or polarizing filter would have helped darken the sky and that little cloud, don't get me wrong I really like this photo, I will try a quick WS

Hi Jim

You may not like the silly little cloud but, personally, I think plain blue skies are just that. Plain, blue and boring. So clouds add interest to an otherwise plain area.

The composition is good, but I may have cropped a little off the top of the sky. As Jack said, everything else is good.
