very Ansell Adams but I think I prefer yours - Adams always makes his quite symetrical in composition which I find less satisfying than this. Might even have decentralised this a little more for my taste - technically fantastic. I sure couldn't get close to this

Andrew O'Rourke   {K:1602} 6/30/2003
Great photo overall, you could try cropping a little off the top, that might enhance the overall reflection aspect of the composition, unless you are intentionaly placing slightly more emphasis on the image vs. reflection.

Kenneth

As everyone has pointed out, this shot is damned near perfect. I too would die happy if I'd taken it. However, ..... you didn't put this shot here just for praise (did you?) and if you want me to desperately try and find ways of improvement, then there is only one thing I can possible find. Is the shoreline just a hint too bright? Is that the edge of the grad filter?

Three things I would LOVE to know, is how long you spent a. selecting the site, and b. setting everything up, and c.how many shots did you take of this scene in total. If you have a momnent to reply, that would be great.

I wanted to pick a special photograph to critique for my 1000th Karma point. This is special, and I really think this it is a PERFECT photograph in every aspect. The lighting and exposure are right on. The composition is balanced, interesting, and just right for this scene. The sharpness of the detail is outstanding. The mirror image in the lake is perfect. It's a beautiful scene and the only thing missing is me! I want to go there. Really great work Kenneth.

It would be nice to see this in a larger format. I would rather you not use the gold trim around the frame. Just a personal preference towards keeping things simple. The water looks as if you could skate across it.

Oliver Whitley   {K:31} 4/24/2003
This is indeed a classic photo with all of the elements of good photography present: composition, clarity, color, visual impact, and beauty. I did not rate the originality as high as some of the other attributes because the use of reflections is very common. All in all, the photo rates very highly with me, especially the aesthetic appeal.

Incredible. I try for shots like this at a local lake several times a year, and I can never get the lighting, the colors and saturation, the reflection, or even the time of day right. You inspire me. Not to ape you or anything but I'm taking a copy of this with me next time I go to my lake. Stunning!

Add my voice to the chanting for an EC, this is spectacular. The little bit of mist on the lake is like the sprinkles on top of the icing on top of a REALLY BIG cake. The reflection is insane. Can I assume this was shot back here in Beautiful B.C.? The trees look like either somewhere in the middle interior, or perhaps even off towards Jasper...
