Hi all!

I'm so glad to be back! Oh, not from my holidays, but on TN...


I missed you all very much and I'm looking forward to meeting, reading and seeing you. I won't be able - after more than 4 weeks of absence - to visit all of your pictures or to comment them. Let me just start again this evening.

As you can see, we have arrived in Slovenia under quite difficult conditions. When I woke up early in the morning - it was at about 6 o'clock - I could take benefit of the only sunray of that day.

I nevertheless was impressed by the beauty of the Lake near Bohinj in the Triglav National Park. I also was impressed by the respect of nature the Slovenian people have. Although it rained a lot, we could appreciate the lovely landscape and the richness of the flora.

Kind regards

Hi Markus

This is just stunning, wonderful control of the light and great balanced symmetrical composition. The atmosphere is wonderful. I think Slovenia is just stunning



Bonsoir Markus
Magnifique sombre-obscure, la limpidité est extra.

Gut, dass Du zurück bist, Markus,

die Stimmung auf dem Bild ist ja toll, ein photographischer Ansel-Adams-Leckerbissen sozusagen. Am Bohinjsko jezero war ich leider nicht, wie ich jetzt mit Bedauern feststelle, wohl aber in Bohiniska Bistrica (per Velo natürich). Ich freue mich schon auf mehr!
Bis demnächst

Hi Markus,
beautifull landscape, sharp, clear and very dark... perfect water reflection, nice clouds and great light. Wonderfull

Hello Markus,

Welcome back!
And, what a shot you have brought us!
The 'mood' just oozes from this!
I love how the refections are so good, even with so little natural light!
A very pleasing composition!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Actually you have made the lousy conditions to look much more "Heaven"-ly Markus...and that is the way you see the world, which is mostly why at least I....missed your emotional posts....and now you are back on TN and I am ever so happy...

Hello Markus,

wonderful photo of a wonderful country from one of the maestros of modern world. It's useless to go into the technicalities like the thirds, golden triangles, leading lines, reflection & the catchlight. Better if we enjoy the serenity.


Hello Markus,
Nice to see you back with a wonderful landscape!
this is nature in it's best with great beauty of light and shadows displayed!
the image is sharp with good details here
well done and many thanks for the sharing

Magnifique et ténébreuse ambiance à l'image de ce que l'on a ces jours-ci.
Bonne journée.

Hi Markus!

Good to see you post again, I think we were off TN for about the same time.

Wonderful Slovenian view with lot of layers and lights, it reminds me of a place in Bosnia I saw some years ago. Very very peaceful place a wish I could visit and have some rest at. TFS!

Best regards,

Hi Markus,
you really did make the most of this moment1 Expertly handled exposure to get the best of this scene my friend, very well done. It's great to have you back here on TN.

Hi Markus,
Mystique in the landscape. And of course misty too.
Thanks for sharing.

Hallo Markus,
Freude wieder ein Bild von Dir auf TN zu sehen. Ein Bild voller Stimmung und noch so ruhig, wie etwas geschehen würde. Ich habe eine Schwäche für fast monochrome Bilder, die uns erlauben alle Nuancen einer Farbe zu entdecken. Auch schönes Licht hast Du aufgefangen. Ein sehr gekonntes Bild.
Einen schönen Abend, es gibt ja heute noch ein Fussballspiel..

Hello Markus,
Lovely to see a post from Bohinj where we spent a holiday a few years ago when there was a direct flight from here to Slovenia. We hired a car and toured around this lovely country. While we had lovely weather I'm sorry to hear that it was not so good for you! You managed to get a superb capture though of this beautiful lake in early morning light with the threatening clouds above. Well done! I think we've been standing on this very spot too!!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Markus,
great to see you back!
How was your holiday in Slovenia?
Very impressive image!
It is so atmospheric and the lighting is incredible!
I love the moody sky and mirror-like reflection.
Pin-sharp and very clear.

Well done,

Bonjour Markus, quelle joie de te retrouver parmi nous! Et quelle photo, majestueux et si sombre, c'est effrayant et magnifique. Encore une fois, de la grande photo. La composition est puissante, la rencontre de la montagne et de la forêt de l'autre côté, la réflexion de deux dans l'eau très calme, les nuages et la faible lumière. J'aurais le souffle coupé en cet endroit.



pts demain

Hi Markus,
Great to see you back and great to see you share such a beautiful srene view. Your experience of the country and its people is fully shared by me. I also was impressed with its beauty. Although the coastal area was less impressive.
I enjoy looking at your photo. Each time I see more details and more colors. The only struggle I have, and I am sure its not, is that it feels tilted. Anyway, good to have you back.

Hi markus,
Wow........simply majestic. Great handling of light and exposure and you have portrayed this beautiful place so nicely. A dream setting and such skillful work. Excellent DOF and POV and the composition is marvellous. Kudos.

Hi Markus

Great to see you are back on TN again, my friend and also great to hear you are having a terrific time in Slovenia! That is definitely a country i would love to visit, too, but it will have to wait :) This year i went to England and i'm probably going to go to Croatia in august...and that's about enough for a student's budget :))

This is a gorgeous and very moody shot of this splendid lake. Even if the light here is very dim, one can definitely appreciate the magnitude of the place and the tranquility of the surroundings. It's also great to hear that people there have a lot of respect for nature...i wish they were the same here, too...
The composition you managed to get here is lovely and i love the "crack" in the heavy clouds that allow those rays of sun thought. The mountains on one side and the nice forest on the other create a splendid border for the view, enhancing the aesthetics of the photo.
Very well exposed in my opinion and well taken!

Bravo and TFS

Hello MArkus

Wonderful lighting and contrast.
The atmosphere you have created is super.
The clouds are letting glorious rays of light pass through and illuminate a beautiful scene.
Masterfully done.

Hi Markus,
A moody photo. Light, POV, color tones, composition and reflections look so nice. TFS

Hello Markus!
Ow yes, this is very enigmatic picture with lovely scenery and "climat" :) Wonderful, almost dramatic picture. I like dark colours and shadows/reflections on the water :)
Best regards,

Hello Markus! Wonderful landscape. Fantastic lightness. Marvelous picture. Well done!

Excellent image! I'm afraid that is a little bit dark, but the influence is STUNNING!
I post workshop, hope you will like it :)

Hallo Markus,
freue mich so, diese wunderbare Wolkenstimmung aus dem Triglav-Nationalpark hier in Deiner Galerie eindrucksvoller Naturfotografien zu finden.
Genau an diesem See wollen auch wir heuer im Spätsommer noch einige Tage verbringen, nachdem wir Anfang Juli ein paar Tage die Soca bis zur Quelle entlang gewandert und von der unberührten, sorglich geschützten Natur der Julischen Alpen in Slowenien tief beeindruckt wieder heimgekehrt sind.
Deine Aufnahme berührt mich in ihrer Spontanität und trefflichen Widergabe der meditativen Stille im Land des Zlatorog.
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,

Hi Markus,

great landscape shotI like you frame by trees on the right and cloud on the left.Contrast with colour but balance by the form and reflection

HI, Markus,

this is wonderful, looks like a painting to me, too : )

Hello Markus,
this is a real misty environment. Lovely tones and reflection. I really love looking at the sky and its soft light coming through it.
Excellent composition.


Great moody shot with wonderful light and colours.
