[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear friends

This is the kind of atmosphere that makes me feel that I'm living... standing out there on a small hill in the eveneing light, just watching and contemplating without thinking, doing nothing else than breathing and taking off for a short flight to nowhere... and finally diving into the blurred and washed out limit between earth and sky where both join to form just one single deep emotion.

Actually I left my home to join this little hill almost beside my house to try out my brandnew lens (f8 reflex lens). I wanted to take pictures of the Red Kite in flight, but as you know I'm such a great wildlife photographer that finally I was more attracted by the evening light...

Taken in RAW, basic corrections in Camera RAW (contrast, vignetting, levels), import to PS and final postprocessing for TN.

Kind regards

Hi Markus
What a strange and lovely atmosphere!
Colors and light are amazing!
Congratulation for this beauty!

Good Mornin Markus, may neighbour:)

Absolutely awesome scene! The composition and colours are based purely on my taste:) The haze's effect so wonderful! I like how defined it looks, especially with the way the light cloud coverage is diffusing it ever so slightly. Simple, effective and powerful. A real winner in my books. Well photographed MF!
TFS and have a nice day!

Ps. i think you did not see the Workshops to attached my last shot:)

Hi Markus,
Congratulations on your new reflex lens. A nice capture of these beautiful evening colors. I have read the reviews of this lens and it is good one for telephotos. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Ciao Markus, all is gold in your fascinating landscape, fantastic light, wonderful atmosphere, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Markus!
Wonderful atmosphere, marvelous, warm colors, great composition!
It is a splendor!

Lieber Markus,
Sehe gerade Dein neues Bild! Welch feine Annäherung an die im Abendlicht leuchtende Tentlinger Landschaft. Subtile Abstufung der Farbtöne und ganz und gar nicht kitschig. Der Markus, der kann's eben!
Herzlich grüsst

Hello Markus
affascinante gioco di luci e sfumature su questo bellissimo paesaggio che sfuma in lontananza. Ottima composizione.

The twilight effect in this landscape is electrifying, to say the least, Markus.
The ponderous, brooding mood evoked by this image leads one to contemplate rather than think. You have dwelt on the emotional aspect of it rather well in your note.
Thanks, friend.

Hallo Markus,

gottseidank hast Du die Vögel zugunsten der Abendstimmungs- Landschaft aufgegeben. Da konnte Deine Kamera und Du Euer grosses Können unter Beweis stellen. Das Detail oben links ist genial, es sieht nach wenig aus, aber es hilft, das Bild zu strukturieren: "It's wonderful, it's wonderful, good luck my baby" (Paolo Conte). Du siehst, ich beziehe meine Poesie von Anderen.
herzlich grüsst Dich Dieter

Dear Markus,
Having experiences that make us aware of living is what we all need, and if one can express it in the form of a such a photo then life is even more worth living!
This is a wonderful photo, full of atmosphere, a fine variation of pastel shades with the layers of the landscape in a fine perspective creating a symphony with the beautiful sky.
I would also experience the feeling of being alive if I saw this!
Nice to share this with you!
Thanks and kind regards,

Thanks for visiting my Pika; your kind words have left me humbled... am PROFOUNDLY grateful.
I may have to delete the Pika image and re-install it. Though all measurements were totally correct for a PANORAMIC VIEW...LARGE VERSION ... the system [administration] failed. So, I will need to re-do it.
However, I'm here to critique your:"Living".
One word: P.E.R.F.E.C.T.I.O.N.
Regards from Calgary, Canada... Mario.

Hello Markus,
Oh what a beauty! The layers in the landscape are fascinating. Also a perfectly matching sky with clouds. Great atmosphere!

Hi Markus,

What a beautiful dreamy atmosphere with this fabulous lighting.
It's absolutely stunning. I like the different colors in the hills and it gives so much depth to this image. I almost feel like I'm standing there right now. Stunning my friend and thanks for sharing.

Hy Markus
Leave the red kite for others! These are the images that characterize you so much! Such images that don't need more comments, suggestions, critiques. Just atmosphere and colors!
All the best,

Hello Markus,
This is a very attractive composition, where all elements come nicely together!
The foggy atmosphere is great and strong dark foreground interest gives a nice sense of depth.Best regards Siggi

Hi Markus,

Exellent pov and a like these time the soft colour tones.


bonjour Markus

d'attirance pour toi, si l'oiseau de proie aura était dans l'image
je crois sa saura était encore plus belle comme photo, une très
belle photo et félicitation pour ta nouvelle lentille, TFS

Salut Marcus,sois la terre,les pierres,le glace ou le ciel,tu as toujours de la classe pour les utiliser en obtenant des resultats magnifiques! Quelle atmosphere magique dans cette photo,tres belle et differente! Mes compliments et bonne fin de semaine,LUCIANO

Hi dear Markus,
Nice scenery with warm colours.
Great composition.
Kind regards

I love your sense of humour, my dear friend Markus!
The layers here give me a sense of the future being unknown and going forward, as they say.
But I also see the first layer which looks black and ominous, which feels like I'm sad, lost perhaps...melancholy perhaps is the word.
But it shows me a brighter future, as the light increases with each layer....Oh!that I could move forward!
A stunning composition, Markus!
Thanks so much!

Hola Markus,
tiene varias lecturas tu trabajo. La primera desprende un nivel alto
de melancolía y porqué no tristeza. La segunda con un punto de ironía
y eso ya me gusta más.
Sean cuales fueren tus sentimientos, es un interesante trabajo
que nos transporta a esas tierras Suizas de una manera espectacular.

Un abrazo y buen Domingo: Josep Ignasi.

hallo Markus
what great scene and shot, with a fantastic looking atmosphere. coloration superb as like framed and notes. orders of hills completed composition. thanks for sharing this beautiful landscape shot. well done.
best regards

Ciao Markus,
spettacolare l'atmosfera di questo paesaggio, molto interessante la successione di piani che avviene per linee orizzontali sia delle valli che delle nuvole, non ne ho mai visti così tanti divisi orizzontalmente, è più facile verdere le valli intersecarsi diagonalmente.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona serata
Ciao Maurizio

Hello Marcus,
What a peaceful mood this awesome shot seem to portray. You managed to capture this fine image when the lighting was just right!! Great work!!

I agree, earth & sky seem to merge and become on here Markus.
The image has a wonderful atmosphere, and I second the singularity of that emotion :)
Well done!

Hi Markus,
exciting piece of landscape you painted with your camera. i like the layers of tones of the mountains.
They are very pleasant and indeed very attractive. Thinking of water colours, and the beauty of this artwork.

Hello Markus,
Scenes from nature have always been my connection with my passion as I think it is with most people on this site. Your captures always have an atmosphere to them that I care for a great deal. Sometimes fun, sometimes serious but always brilliant and heart felt. Thank you Markus.
