Hello Saeed,
What a wonderful winter landscape! A blue sky is scarce here these days! I like your composition with the ice in the foreground and the sky reflected in the open water. Nice depth of focus and well done!
Many thanks, Ulla

This is a very nice photo Saeed. I have the same camera/lens combination. I think it is good. I really like the range of that lens. It's very useful. Your sharpness and exposure both look good. I love the reflection and the inclusion of foreground elements. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the shift in color between the blue of the sky and the blue in the reflection. Did you do something with filters or in pp to cause the shift???

Evelynn ; )

Hi, dear Saeed.
Once amazing landscape picture from you. Superb place, stunning colours and freshness of the air. Details and sharpness are fantastic. Mirror reflection in the water are splendid. Composition is spot on. Bravo. Great art work.

Hi Saeed,
This image seems like a dream one!
I like a lot the well built composition here, with the smooth curves of the snow at down and the beauty of the blue sky reflected.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Saeed , Fantastic landscape , great colours and reflecti in the water ,good compositie ,I like it ,tfs Greetings Teunie .

Hi Saeed,
This landscape very beautiful and is well emphasized. Is the color of the sky curiously blue, natural??? I find the composition of the image beautiful, but the foreground does not appear very interesting to me: I would have cut it.

Hi Saeed!

What a beautifull place! White and blue colours, reflections in water, snowy peaks - everything made perfect, winter landscape. I hope I'll visit your beautifull country some day!

Salam Saeed. Glorious panorama, beautiful colour. I can almost feel the fresh, clean air. Nice PoV from the snow covered bank. Regards. Klaudio.

Hallo Saeed
What a lovely and peaceful atmosphere you have captured in this landscape photo. The bright blue sky, with the fleece clouds in the air, the snow on the mountain tops, the dead quite water of the lake and the cottages in the far distance makes this scenery more special. That is the kind of place where wants to go to unwind from the daily bickering. Thanks for sharing. It was lovely to look at.
Kind regards

Hello Saeed,
This is beautiful!
The composition of the mountainrange and its reflection is nicely balanced by the ice sheet in the FG. The far shore of the lake is made more interesting by the rows of poplar trees and the reed-bed. All this make a great palate of colours with the blue sky dominating.
Well done my friend and thanks for sharing this great landscape image.

Hello Saeed,
What a stunning winter landscape, amazing colours with an excellent dof, perfect POV and a lovely reflection as well, great shot, all the best Cheers Rick...

Intéressant de voir qu'il y a aussi de la neige en Iran, pays, qui vu d'ici, parait plutôt bien chauffé par le soleil.
Bonne journée.

Hi Saeed, splendid view of great lake, wonderful reflections, beautiful colors, fascinating landscape, very well done, have a great Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hello Saeed,
This is a lovely place, where the lake is still free of ice in this snowy landscape!
One can enjoy the wonderful calm water reflecting the blue sky, but I can see the ice is starting to form along the shore...

Hello Saeed

What a beautiful capture of this wonderful scene.
The reflections are super.
Excellent clarity with sharp focus and detail.
Nicely composed.


Hi dear Saeed,
Fantastic landscape, excellent colors and reflections, not to mention sharpness and the whole compo. Simply wonderful. It's good to see snow (for me), because there was very few here in Central Europe in the last two winters.
Congrats and tfs, regards from Hungary, László

Hi Saeed, Each of your shots makes my resolve harder to work towards a vist to your country. You bring out the very best of your country eyt again in this splendid nature's capture witha great DOF and PoV.The eflection is and the dominant blue colour in the shot are marvellous.Very well done.
TFS & Cheers

hello Saeed

What an absolutely beautiful place you have photographed here.
It is not the kind of scene that I would picture in my mind when I think of Iran.
If the politicians could sort out their differences and let ordinary people get on with each other, this is a place I would love to visit.
This photo could sell holidays in Iran to the rest of the World.
