bonjour jeanpaul

dans ma vie j'ai eu la chance d'aller au Saguenay
une fois en passant par le Parc des Laurentides

très belle photo de paysages de notre belle province
très belles couleurs superbe composition
j'aime le reflet qui se fait à l'eau de la partie haut de l'image

juste j'espère être critique constructive
au bas du reflet du premier arbre
il y a comme une espèce de roche
j'aurais fait en sorte qu'elle ne soit pas dans la photo

aussi pour le 2e arbre, j'aurais préféré voir à sa droite
la suite du paysage, l'image se coupe au moitié
de cet arbre, j'aurais préféré voir à sa droite aussi
la suite du paysage et du reflet

Hi JeanPaul

Over time you have convinced me that you have probably one of the most beautiful and tranquil locations for your camp and yearly retreats. One cannot help but to fall in love with the place even though I've never set foot there or seen it first hand, but your postings has given me a well exposed and lasting impression. The place seems so far remote from any civilisation that even the silence would be audible. Although I don't think you would ever hear silence there as it's probably filled with the abundant sounds of unadulterated, pristine, and idyllic nature.

Your posting could well be used as a calming and comforting poster on the ceiling in a dentists room, When the patient are filled with anxiety and fear and he/she goes to lie on the hot seat this tranquil scene would surely calm the most tense of potential nervous wrecks. The mid range with the trees and vegetation might be slightly on the darkish side, but maybe that's only my monitor and obviously in PP that is not a major issue. That immaculate mirrored reflection on the water surface is pure magic on the visual senses. The colours and the details are splendid and the composition provides great depth and scaled perspective.

Very well done and TFS.

Hello JP,
The lake has an amazing calmness, making a great reflection of the surroundings!
Deep attractgive colours, fine details... good 3D feeling to this composition!

Hi Jeanpaul

The light here is just beautiful. It really has shown some lovely colours in the trees. Nice reflections in the water too. It is a lovely calm and serene shot



Bonjour Jean-Paul,

Une belle image de ce lac, de la forêt et des différentes réflections dans l'eau, la photo a une bonne composition, profondeur de champs et de jolies couleurs. Bonne journée.

The composition is exquisite, Jeanpaul! Such a view is quite breathtaking!
Colours are perfect, details are fabulous
Wonderful posting -- with a mood that is truly moving

Superbe avec cette eau clame et le reflet de la montagne.

Apparaît qu'un arbre sort de l'eau dans un tour magique. La maison du vôtre est comme si un rêve pour moi. Ceci est mon genre de vie. L'apprécier vous devez certainement. Donc éclaircir et colorer rempli. Très bon.

Hi Jeanpaul, what a beautiful view and a superb composition. The light and relfections are amazing! crystal clear and sharp. Great pov pulling the eye into the scene.

bonjour jeanpaul

un tout grand bravo

Bonjour jeanpaul,
great pov with perfect sharpness, vivid colour and details
good exposure and focus especially the golden sunlight!
well done and well seen

Bonjour Jean-Paul,
What a beautifulo view! You placed Your camp the best way. :) And You were also lucky to get zero wind speed, so the reflection on the water became perfect. Magnificent image, although I should have cropped the branch of the pine from the bottom. But this is a minor thing. Congratulations and thanks for sharing. Merci et au revoir, László from Hongrie

PS: many thanks for Your warm critique on My Red Dream.
