[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My last post showed some of the peaks above Josephine Lake. Steve signal-womb thought the shot might look good with a reflection. That's a nice setup because it was a perfect day for a reflection -- a clear and still morning, and I am sitting on a whole stash of reflection shots. This was taken from a tour boat that crosses the lake.

PP: A noise filter, resize, frame, and unsharp mask.

P.S. Next stop, Grinell Lake.

Hi Mike,

Superb landscape shot, the reflection is beautiful and the colours are perfect.

TFS Hilary :)

Hi Mike.
I like the reflection. No more words, you have done it very very well. Congratulations. TFS.
With my best wishes.

Hello Mike, glad to critique your post before I go although I may be active for a couple of days. VERY beautiful landscape and a good composition to enhance the look of the photo. Did you crop the height of this image? If so my guess is that you cropped the sky to balance the reflection. The calmness of the water allows for the most perfect mirrored image, I love that. I often add a little warmth into LS shots that have a lot of blue which I think enhances the tone. Big smiley from me, well done.

Hi Mike,
Wonderful reflection, composition and POV. Very nice color, contrast, exposure, and great dimensional light on this morning...Sitting on a whole stash of reflection shots hey..Gee wiz, I'm jealous ;)
Very well done.

Hi Mike,
You just keep on producing! The reflection is just awesome. Great composition and excellent colors. Maybe the rock is a tad too bright, but thats the bright light at Glacier.

Hi Mike

This is one of the best photographs with reflections i've ever seen!
The simetry is impecable, the sharpness fantastic and the colors simply lovely. I also like the POV, the exposure and the framing.
Very well done!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Mike,

A good POV of Josephine lake and of the reflections in the water, the photo has a very good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.
