Hi Daniel,

You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and rich/bright tone, so it's impressive to see trees dyed to autumnal tints and beautiful mountain range with snow. It's impressive in the belt cloud on horizon, too. And, the reflection projected to the lake draws out a good mood.
A beautiful photograph as painting!


Beautiful landscape and warm autumn colours with the snow covered mountains behind. The golds and blues go really well. I wonder if you could maybe have moved over just a little to the left to get the whole mountain reflection just a little clear from the river bank vegetation to bring it out more? Otherwise pure picture perfect postcard.

Hi Daniel,
Lovely view of the river and the reflection of the mountain, though I do feel it could be a bit sharper,

Hello Dan

They don't get much better than this. Your POV of the winding river moving it's from the mountains. The fall colors are great as well as the awesome sharpness. Very well done on your composition. A gallery piece for sure.


Hi Daniel, I love the timing of this with the low lying clouds inthe middle and the mountain looks like it has just given a little burp of smoke.Great Autumn colours also. Fiona

Hello Daniel,
The autumn scene is impeccably caught in this frame. Browning vegitation in the presence of water reservior is looking fabulous. Background hills with snow is charming and beautifully placed. Such a fantastic snapshot, well done. Thanks for sharing.
Best Wishes,

Daniel, This is an awesome shot! I commend you on a job well done.


Hi Daniel, a beautiful day for a beautiful vista. The autumn colours enhance the view. I might have been tempted to crop the mountain on the right as the reflection leads the eye natural to the central mountain which I feel is a little too central when the mountain on the right is included. This is my stuff however and you have captured a lovely shot. Good job

Hi Daniel,
A classic photo from a well known position. The warm fall colors and the fog makes this stand out from many (incl mine) photos taken from this location. I agree with Miles on the position and would have liked to see a little more details in the foilage. I don't think the extreem small aperture did the photo any good.

Hi Daniel,

Another cracking shot, what a beautiful place,it just looks a little soft probably due to diffraction with to small an aperture. I find even with full frame if you go below f16 it starts to soften the image.
