[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The day after I made the photo of the bull Elk, we drove up the same road and guess what, he was there again, but this time near the road. We stopped again, but this time I wanted to do something differently. I switched to me 10-22mm lens so that I could create a landscape photo showing the habitat of the Elk. I had a hard time with the light, because the overcast was pretty heavy and using my CP stops me from using the lens hood. The sun played tricks on me.

P.S. I think I am having an off day. Can't explain it, but I can't seem to get the photo correctly enhanced.

Hi Niek,
Seems to be a lot of available wildlife..!
Interesting lighting, I notice the reflection in the water...
Well framed and with good lines, backlight works well here!

HI Niek,
this looks a little mystic with the golden reflections in the water and the single Elk.
Like in a fairy-tail, so idyllic but with a dark sky. It's wonderful, I like it, thanks

Hi Niek
Wonderful landscape and excellent composition.
Shots and places like this make us hope that someday we will be there.
See you TFS

I like it a lot Niek! The thumbnail caught my eye right away. I think it looks fine and the portrait format works really well here. The little bit of OE doesn't distract so much because or the great light on your focal point...the elk. If he weren't lit up then the image wouldn't work; but as it is, I like it.

Nice shot Niek,
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. POV is great.
Well composed and nicely framed.
Thanks for posting, have a great weekend

Hi Niek,
Nice landscape, an interesting composition in the vertical. I would like to see it in a panoramic version as well..
Well done and TFS!

Bonjour Niek
Elle est superbe cette prise de vue de ce superbe paysage et ce bel Elk mâle. Les couleurs,les détails et l'éclairage sont parfaits.
Félicitations et merci pour l'envoie.....JP

Hey Niek,
Gret job with tough conditions. I think you made a nice picture with what you had to work with. I think there are very few things worse than sunlight that you can't seem to get control of. Thanks for sharing!
