[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo in the evening, as the sun was getting low to the horizon. The picture is actually showing the view to the west -- I think the sun was just about the picture in that shot. I love the stillness of the lake and some of the reflections that you can see. I also tried making the picture B&W, but it lost something... but at the same time, I didn't like the photo in color because there weren't very many colors. So I went for a sepia sort of effect, which I think worked out well. Do you like it?

Hi Brian,

I agree that sepia seems to work well for this image. I might be tempted to crop out a little of the sky because it is so bright it takes away from the lovely reflection. TFS

Hi Brian,
Great photo with excellent use of the sephia color. I realy like the reflection in this photo. I do agree with Evelynn about the sky. But, still a excellent POV and DOF.

Hi Brian, this is a very nice shot and B & W is the better choice. Are ou able with photoshop to make the sky a little dark?
Tray and let me know.

Great mood and nice reflection and color.
