[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an old photo from my archives. I appreciate the picture is posted small but this is purely because it is an old picture and I wasn't able to post it larger. I hope the beautiful place makes up for the small photo.

Lake Jasna is located just 2km from the town of Kranjska Gora in Slovenia and is the gateway to the Triglav natural park. It is a stunning glacial lake with fine white sand around its shores. The Pivnica river flows nearby. A statute of Zlatorog stands nearby (Zlatorog was a chamois with goldern horns that lived on and guarded Mt Triglav and it's treasures. The borders of Austria and Italy are within walking distance.

Bonjour Karan,
Très beau reflet.
J'aime la composition avec la courbe de la première crête d'où surgit la montagne, et la ligne blanche horizontale de la plage.
C'est beau !!!


Hello Karan,
Very beautiful reflection.
I like the composition with the curve of the first peak from where the mountain emerges, and the horizontal white line of the beach.
Beautiful !!!

Hi Karan
This might be the gateway to the Triglav natural park, but I think it is also the gateway to utter tranquillity and rest. What more does one want than a big blue sky, lovely mountains, tall trees, and the mirrored reflections on a crystal clear alpine lake (although maybe somewhat algae riddled).
The vertical composition worked very well in this composition. The colours are vivid, the details are nice and sharp, and the exposure was spot on.
Very well done and TFS.

Hi Karan,
Very nice landscape picture. The near and far mountains have different characters and give depth to this picture. The reflection on the lake just great. Regards,

Good morning Karan,
Even though it's a small post, you manage to show us a lot in it and all of a good quality too.
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
superb colours, lighting and exposure. The POV is good.
Well composed and good notes.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.

Very good landscape shot Karan, lovely colors and composition. Good work ! Thanks !


Great shot of a great place. I was there a few years ago - and I loved it (I loved the soca river nearby as well). I think Scott (wanting to go skinny dipping) doesn't realise how cold this water is!

Hi Karan!
A lot has already been said, so all I can say is that it looks like paradise to me.
A stunningly beautiful capture of this pristine haven on earth.

I love the clear, crisp colours - giving the whole place a fresh look. You can almost feel the clean air coming out of the picture. I love the effect of the reflection - I`m a fan of reflections!
Great composition too, with different layers of contrast.
Good job!


Hi Karan,
In image properties I saw little pixels are being used. There is a great tool for that in PS CS2: save for web, it is called. There, you can resize and optimize for the web.
Nice landscape. Good compo.

Hi friend another great landscape shot of yours! Nice PoV, great colors! Very artistic image! Take care Ana:)

Hi Karan,
Wonderful photo.

Hola Karan,
Enhorabuena por esta toma, es bellísima. El efecto de espejo da brillantez a la foto. Un lugar muy hermoso y tranquilo.

It's a beautiful scene, and from what I hear, a beautiful country, I'd love to go there.
Lovely blue sky and great contrast and definition in the distant mountains, although I think the trees look a little too dark.

ah yes, small is sometimes good!! lol, great colours and scenery, tfs.

Hi Karan!
A very beautiful Jasna-clear lake under the Triglav-threeheaded peak capture - vivid colors and beautiful pov! Thanks for showing and a happy New year!

Hi Caran real nice POV a great DOF, real good sharpness.

Hello Karan,
Breath-taking landscape, perfect reflection and sharpnes.

Hi a wonderfeul picture
the composition with its reflection is very good
great coloursa nad beatifull landscape
Best regards Toba

Hi Karan!
Well, Slovenia is the only part of former Yugoslavia in which I have not been till now. But watching pictures like this one I absolutely have to visit it! :)
Lovely presentation with great colours and DOF. I like the way you presented the mountain - in "typical way" but also as a water reflection.
By the way, do you know that "Jasna" means "bright" if we are talking about colours?
TFS and have a nice weekend,

Hi Karan,

wonderful natural place, water color is wonderful, nice light

Dear Karan,
This photograph of yours deserves 100 points. I have the honor to do so. Excellent image & reflection with shades of crystal clear water.

Utterly gorgeous. The colors are very pleasant, and, combined with the note, this picture makes me want to get outdoors.
