Awesome mountain landscape, the calm waters provides an excellent mirror for the rounded shapes...
Wise to include the shore in front, I agree on the sky but 14 years ago is impressive anyway!
Very BAD, Emma!
Why didn't you show us this picture ealier? It is so beautiful!
Sky or no sky, this picture grabs me for its foreground and mid-ground -- the slightly wind ruffled reflection of those hillocks on water and the dapples of sunshine on those hillocks.
The depth of view is also very good; gives you a clear impression of those shallow vales in the background.
This is a neat scan of a print. There is no loss in quality anywhere.

Hello Emma, I think we all over exposed our skies when we started out which is why my exposure setting is nearly always set to half or one full stop - for LS anyhow. I would burn some details on the water but then again it would only emphasize the lack of detail in the sky. Never the less its a nice tranquil image and one worth posting. Regards Steve.
P.S. Thanks for software link, must try that out.

I like the composition and the landscape a lot. You have a good scanner, didn't notice anything. AS for the sky, it is white but not overexposed, the whole is a very good balanced photograph.

Great mirror image on your pic. I tried one recently and posted it. (Have a look and let me know what you think but it is nowhere as good as yours!). The composition, POV, colours and detail, especially of the reflection are all great and it makes it a good posting. TFS,
I like this landscape a lot and I remember the other shot as an impressive one too. A perfect shot where I do not notice the scan process. Serenity and peace is all over this landscape. Still I remember the sentence you used (one point in time this was a forest). When your collegue come back, try to put a date and a cause to this devastation, if it's easy for you.
TFS, José M.

Beautiful landscape! Excellent composition and framing. I love the great reflection you have captured in the water. Beautiful subtle colors and nice sharp detail. A great feeling of depth in this shot.

Thanks for posting, enjoy the rest of the week.

A fantastic view emma!
lovely mood and great reflections in the water. nice scenery. Good job!
Hi Emma, good shot. I like the composition and the reflections are great. It's a shame that detail in the sky has been lost (I can see it in the reflection). Well done.

A beautiful scene, wonderful reflection. Shame about the sky, though. The patch of blue sky in the reflection shows us that it was there and could have been improved with a wider lens. Never mind!

What a beautiful landscape with such a serene look. Lets just leave out the sky part and concentrate on the beauty of the rest. The light on the mountains has a great playfullness and the reflection in the lake is as sharp as my razor. I am really impressed with the quality of the scan. Great photo which must have great memories for you.
Superb shot of this scenic landscape. Very sharp and clear, with superb details. Nicely composed and great reflection captured. It is tilted to right a bit [about 5 degrees, I guess]
Have a nice weekend and don't work too hard...
