Hello Steve and Ioana!

A marvellous picture, full of beauty and calmness! TFS.

Beautiful vista.
Interesting content from Northern Romania.

You have quite the flare for doing this type of c=scenic shot, meaning you do it well. You take a possible mundane scene and give it life and breath thru your work. And this is a fine example as any of how you do so well...


Hello Steve and Ioana,
This is a excellent composition of landscape photo!
Good DOF, pov, vivid colour and details
very well done indeed

This is a nice, pleasant scene that you have captured. I like the well placed foreground grasses and the lovely soft reflections. In many cases such a heavy high contrast frame would overpower the image because the high contrast jumps forward. In this case that works well, because it pushes the image back and the viewer looks deep into the scene. It acts as a sort of window frame. Nice work.

Hi Steve,
once more a great composition...must've been a still day, there's no movement in the reeds in the FG even at 1 second! Great colour and DOF, a great feeling of peace here, a theme that seems to run throughout your photo's.
Nice work.
P.S What part of the South of England are you coming to? i will try to source you a good lab to get those negs sorted...
