Adirondack Scene by Ray Henrikson

September 2020 - Adirondack Scene

About the Image(s)

Taken from a Kayak on Loon Lake of upstate New York. Using an Olympus Tough 8000 waterproof, pocket-size camera. The lily pads with water droplets in the foreground, the mountain, and the clouds all came together and told me to capture the scene. Minimal editing, hardly anything really, using Picasa.

A nice simple image of water lily pads and clouds reflecting in the still lake. The hill and clouds in the background add interest as well, but are slightly distracting. I would perhaps suggest cropping half of the sky out as the interesting subjects are the lily pads and reflection in the water.   Posted: 09/02/2020 16:00:16

I wouldn't touch the clouds!!! They are what originally caught my eye.   Posted: 09/07/2020 10:22:01

This is a fine shot, with sky, water surface, and sky reflection. Am I seeing a bit into the depths of the water, for another layer? Is this like Escher's "Three Worlds"? Can you shoot this again showing yet more into the depths of the water? You would then have four worlds: sky, surface, under-surface, and sky reflection. Oh, and if you inject your shadow onto the surface of the water with the sun behind you (like Vivian Maier often did), they you would have five worlds.   Posted: 09/05/2020 15:15:34

Well done, Ray. Nice foreground, middle area with reflection and background of mountain/sky. Good focus except for trees in top left and the photo is filled. Was there a wind that moved those trees? Photo appears a "little flat." Might try upping the saturation a little. I'm curious. How did the sky get "robin-egg blue on the right and sky-blue on the left??   Posted: 09/10/2020 13:29:15

An excellent shot with a wonderful foreground that leads me right into the scene. Love the reflection of the clouds in the water. You might consider increasing the contrast just a bit to really make it "pop". I have to agree with David that cropping down half of the sky would make it a stronger image, keeping my focus on the rest of the scene.   Posted: 09/12/2020 07:45:39

wow, a fun one, especially pocket this one on water! good work, that's tough to get balance, and steady on water.
reflection of cloud is the winning element here. others just bonus. I like it   Posted: 09/17/2020 21:51:21
