Hi Chris,
I love the silver colour lake. Branches are well established in the compo. Well done.

the framing looks good, the silhouette of the tree making up the frame...i like the empty look :)

Yeah i like the effect on film that almost monochrome here. But most catch my attention is the composition & mood that have in the POV. Bagus sekali!

Hi Chris,
Yes there is other people that like it and I'm one of them I like the lines of the tree that are framing and leading us to the floating thing on the water and also these beautiful light reflections on the water. very well done.

Well i also think that the almost black and white result to this capture is just perfect and goes well with such moment and mood created. Superb angle of capture. Well done.

Hi Chris..Wow.. a pleasure to see this lake, yes almost B/w Perect POV ! Thanks and bye

Hello Chris,
indeed this is a lovely composition, I like the strong silouette of the trees against the pastel glittering BG. Lovely tones and great textures.
Very well done.

I like that, here in French we say a "Nature morte" Probably death nature is not the exact expression in English... Mean we see nobody or no animals. But we have nice shapes... It's good! And light on water reflection is good too! I enjoy the deep presence :)
