[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken from the same boat as yesterday's upload, this time I concentrated my composition on the town.

Some information about the place from Wikipedia:

Évian-les-Bains or Évian is a commune of France, in the northern part of the Haute-Savoie département, on the shores of Lake Geneva (aka Lac Léman), opposite Lausanne, Switzerland.
In July 1938, the Évian Conference was convened there to discuss the problem of Jewish refugees. On March 18, 1962, the Évian Accords were signed there. On June 1, 2003 the G8 began its 29th summit meeting in Évian.
The town is home of Evian mineral water, which makes up the foundation of the economy together with the Casino d'Evian, largest themed casino in Europe, and the Evian Royal Resort, favorite holiday destination of former French President François Mitterrand.
The two largest hotels in Évian are the Hotel Royal where the G8 summit was held and the Hilton.

Hi Kristof

Good sharpness, & smart choice of a wide angled, panoramic format. Excellent contrast & layering, with good colour. The distant group of yachts add a good focal point. Tfs!

Hello Kristof,
Very well made picture with very good sharpens. It is a wonderful effect in picture. A wonderful composition in the picture. wonderful landscape. The composition is excellent one and effect of the picture. Really special, largely is your imagination.
Best regards.

What a lovely place Kristof! A place where you can see forever! I love the mist/fog/clouds on the hillside! Nice control of light here, I'm surprised your ISO is set to 64. I didn't know it could go below 100! Nice long crop!
