About the Image(s)

The attached image was taken in the Colorado Rockies when I was teaching a Road Scholar program at the Mountain Campus of Colorado State University.

The main adjustments I made were to do some “cloud sculpting” in Nik Software. I also added some contrast to the forest area.

Mary, beautiful and sharp landscape image. I like the complete reflection of the pine trees, and the little amount of grass on the left lower are which gives depth creating the foreground, midground and background. Looks like a peaceful place to sit and enjoy he view.   Posted: 11/03/2023 09:11:38

Nice peaceful and calm view Mary. This proves that what I normally call boring evergreen trees can be in a pleasing situation. The limited colour palette works well.   Posted: 11/18/2023 06:19:19

Hi Mary, you have capture a beautiful landscape image on a sunny day. While the light conditions may not have been the best for creating an atmospheric shot, you managed to capture a nice composition with those reflections in the water and an interesting sky. Your editing complements the image very well.   Posted: 11/19/2023 04:05:52

Hi Mary. This location has such beautiful scenery and looks like a great place to kayak. The PP was done well to bring out the beauty of the scene. When I first looked at this image, I was immediately drawn to the sky and the evergreen tree shapes. I don't think the shoreline is directly in the middle, but with the crop, I see the image as being divided into 2 parts. For me, the trees and sky create a strong connection while the water and small patch of grass don't show a strong enough relation to the top of the image. I wish the ripply reflections were a bit more distinct.
Overall, the image is lovely and gives me a sense of place to this beautiful location.   Posted: 11/19/2023 08:17:23
