[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After a couple hours of hiking north along the ridge, we leave the rocky wind-swept peaks and drop a bit of elevation into more lush and forested hills. This reedy lake and whispy clouds above were definitely screaming for a polarizer.
One thing about the high country ion this area is that topography and ecosystems can change very quickly; making for a wide variety of fabulous scenery all within a day's hike.

That's a wonderful motive, Tim, I like the colours and the silence here, a fantastic place to sit down and relax, thanks

Hi Tim,

This is a great shot with lots of movement, lead lines and perspective leading the viewer deep into the scene. It is excellent in every way. f/8 must be the sweet spot on that lens.

Hello Tim, it is realy an artistic shot, I like it, congratulations, and many thanks for shared

As a well learned clarinetist I would have appreciated the title. Tho I never used a polarizer in performance however I did use a reed or two ...oh...wait..yes...

The picture is a wonderful pattern. Something like an arpeggio. A pattern of arpeggios yes..that describes this best in a Taoist frame of mind. It is a mixed meta-confluence of great energy, more than likely kinetic and appearing so in disguise...Yes that's it! No chuckling now Tim. I'm serious here..Look up your words..It is more of an enigmatic critique, but so is the chore of critiquing.

Hi Tim,
Interesting view especially the water weed and you have used it well as a form of leading line. The weeds in conjunction with the waters edge and the top of the trees lead the eye from 1 side to the other side of the photo well. That sky is also amazing.

Beautiful patterns in the water. Wonderful colors all around.

  • Great

Hi Tim. This is an excellent picture. The colours and detail is spot on. the tall fir trees reaching up to the blue sky. with fine white clouds. you are a lucky man to have been to this lovely place. TFS. Nick..

Hi Tim,
The pattern of the grasses in this lake are really wonderful. It is really amazing how the eyes are drawn into the photo by the grass. I am not totally sure about the composition. The twigs on the left are bothering me and so is the strange 'flying' log on the right. A bit of masking on the other logs might be a good idea as well. Looks like you had to do some work on the sky as well. Still the view is another beauty of nature.
