[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
You might not be surprised to find that I took quite a few shots of this lake! Here's another RAW file that has gone undeveloped until now. A bit of a different perspective with more of Divide Mtn itself as well as a few surrounding peaks.
Photo top and left have been slightly cropped and all kinds of cool enhancements made in Adobe Lightroom.
I'll post the original untouched version in WS so you can see the transition.

Hi Tim,
a really superb capture of a fantastic scene.
The picture fit's really well in the series I've seen on your website. I like the way you try to keep natural contrast and colors in your picture. Also the effect of a tripod is visible (something i never really dared to take with me as a result of weight reduction).
Not just for this picture, but for all I've seen, nothing but compliments.
Cheers, JAcob

Maravilloso, un disparo genial y bellos detalles y composición... saludos Tim.

Hello Tim,

This is a stunning reflection. Colors, POV and details are amazing, this looks surreal indeed... Well done with excellent exposure and DOF.

Hi Tim,
I am glad you also posted the pre worked version, since I can now see the power of Lightroom clearly. That is rather impressive and for sure worth to try the program myself.

The final result is just breathtaking. Such a stunning view and topped by this awesome reflection. The mountains in the back look massive. Just looking at it makes me small, really small.

Remarkable shot, Tim. At least, the final version with all your PP work is -- the original would only look to be in a marginal category until you revealed all the wonderful detail in the original. So thanks for showing us all the value of good PP.

A fantastic view! Great reflections and wonderful colours!


I had to Fav. this one.
Without further comment: OUTSTANDING.!!!
Great piece of work. Congratulations.
Best regards,

Hi Tim,

What you did to this image is absolutely amazing, I went to look at the RAW workshop and my bottom jaw just about fell off. Incredible editing all in great taste. :)

To my favorites Tim.

amazing landscape, almost like a painting, TFS Ori

wonderful view with a great reflection!Perfect composition.

Beautiful reflection! I have added this photo to my favorites, something about this photo that is so eye catching! Perfect sharpness exposure and everything else about it! Thank you very much for sharing this work of art! Cheers Josh Lewis.

beautiful location, but one thing has me curious, seems you have better detail/color in the moutain reflection. Still a great image

Speechless! I really have to travel to Banff and check out the Canadian Rockies. Awesome composition, DOF. Can't think of anything to change this picture.

Hi Tim,

The reflections on the water of the lake are assets to the composition. The point of view is sending my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the scenery. It is also showing the details and colors of the mountains and of the lake. The quality of the light is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello Tim.
Impressive landscape and fantastic photo. The composition, the colours and the sharpness are excellent.
My best wishes for a Marry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

magic landscape. Excellent shot!
