[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lacul Rosu (Red Lake) is a natural storage lake at elevation 980 m, 73 km N of the municipality of Miercurea-Ciuc. The lake was formed in XIX century when rocks masses slided down across the Bistrita River. Still one can see old fir trunks emerging from the water. The picture was taken at a sunset at the end of a gloomy, rainy and windy day.

Great picture Michal! Very good mood with mist and warm light. Landscape reflected in lake looks amazing. We were there just two months ago but it was raining and Lacu Rosu didn't look so beautifull like on your photo.

Great lighting, nice colours in the mist.
Well composed.
Refections in the water are great!
The photo makes me want to look around the corner to see what is there.

That's a great shot.. The mist coming up from the water add something special to the composition. Lovely colours and light. Well done!

A great shot Michal,
Dark and moody,very well composed.
A beautiful looking place.
Well captured.


Excellent capture Michal.
Fabulous colours and light.
What a brilliant place to be for a sunset,and a great end to a gloomy day.

Beautiful shot. It's like a painting. I love the contrast of the light and shadow. Well done, Michal. It gives a calm, peaceful feeling.

Breath taking..... this is a surreal shot Michal. Must have been magical to actually be there. Only one word needed P E R F E C T !!!!

You certainly picked the right moment to capture this one, the light is amazing, I might of looked at lightening the shadows on the left a fraction to reveal some hidden details , but not sure that it is realy needed though, would love to see it as a print I suspect a lot of extra details would become evident.

great shot Michal

Way nice Michal! Real interesting lighting. Like Sue (sway), I want to see what's around the corner. This scene looks so peaceful. TFS!

Great landscape picture Michal!

Focus and DOF are excellent. I would say that exposure is also great, but contrast is to high. As an admirer of Ansel Adams, I need to see as much details as possible all over the frame. You have to much dark black shadow in your image that can be corrected. I'm not saying it should reveal plenty of details, it should just show some hints of details to justify keeping those dark area in your picture. You gave me a nice opportunity to do a Workshop and I beleive I kept the mood of you original picture. ;o)

Bardzo ciekawe zdjecie Panie Michale z Lodzi. Czuje sie jak na jakims tajemniczym filmie. Wspaniale oddales nastroj chwili. Gratulacje. pozdrawiam Aga

Magnificent lighting on this beautiful shot Michal. The silhouette on one side and details on the other work great for me. :)


The best!

thanks Ana:)

Hi Michal!
really a outstanding landscape!
beautiful colours and composition , love the contrast created by shadows and light and the mist gives a very intimist ,almost secret mood!
in short , a magnificent Photograph!

Perfect! Preciosa la luz, la niebla, la serenidad, la composiciˇn.

Hello Michal,
A strong atmosphere is created by the bakclight and the fog!
Wonderful colours, and a very pleasant composition...
Mysterious mood in this beautiful place!

Hello Michal.

Excellent capture Michal!!!

Great shot. The serence atmosphere with the still water of the lake, and the reflections along with the mist create a magical picture.

Hi, Michal,

what a beautiful photo!! an excellent photo in all aspects. and I love the way the logs lead the viewer into the heart (the deeper part) of the photo. also, i am really curious to know, what lies beyond that mysterious corner?

thanks for sharing this wonderful photo!!
