[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My son fishing at Lake Sakakawea, North Dakota. The lake is named for the famous Shoshone/Hidatsa woman who guided the Lewis and Clark expedition up the Missouri River in 1805. It is the third largest man-made lake in the United States.

The original shot was rather unexciting, so I cranked up the noise removal settings in CS2 to give it a softer, more ethereal effect.

Nikon 8008s and AF Nikkor 28mm/2.8 on Kodachrome 64.

The picture is really nice, it attract me to watch it more ..

thanks for sharing...

Hello John,
A wonderful image but I regret having read that it is a picture of your son and about you having cranked-up the noise removal settings etc.....
This is art and when I view a work of art I do not want to know how it came about, I just want to sit back and enjoy it as I am doing right now and enjoy its message or meaning. And marvel at the capabilities of the artist.

Must say, I welcome it when a portrait photographer, for example, provides technical information here but then it is not about art per se.


Hi John - well, you sure got a very ethereal effect here! Very nice, good composition and a lovely warm colour!


Hi John, I like the glow that you have gotten on your sons face, nice warm piece of art. Fiona

Hello John
