Wow - this is an absolute Favorite and I Like not only this gorgeous picture, I like this landscape too. I have been there several times but never seen such a fantastic, dramatic light. Very good capture - congratulationes!!! Greetings from Austria, Ingrid

Thank you Ingrid for the YS* & **L and also for the kind comment. Cheers from Portland --- Ken

I really like how the foreground interacts with the background. The rocks almost make an echo of Hood, and their reflections merge. And something is also very nice about that bit of shore on the right. Maybe it has to do with the spatial relationships between the many triangle shapes in this composition, but really I'm just guessing. Whatever it is, it works for me! Greeting from down south!

A beautiful photo to give many interpretations, ™Ken. I liked Ken's (south:) echo idea and here's another: the great sculptor of the mountain did start his work with a line of sketches on the shore before the final masterpiece.

Good luck with the contest! It's interesting to see what/if anything happens with the new categories.

Thanks Ken and sixten for the comments. I processed this one shortly after capture and then forgot about it. My recent foray into Lightroom has prompted me to look through my images again.

A stunning version of one of my favorite locations Ken.

It looks a tad HDR with the reflection so alive like that. The pale blue cast on the rocks is reminiscent too......

Nevertheless I love it - Jethro

Kenneth Kruse on January 10, 2012

You are correct Jethro HDR indeed! I actually splashed the rocks with water causing them to pick up the reflection of the blue sky. I think I will redo this with exposure stacking and see what I come up with. Been playing around with Adobe Lightroom and love the tonal control available.

Its alright for you rich kids!

Actually I'm using a 30 day free trial version which was a really bad idea, now that I've used it I don't know how I can resist buying it! Fortunately the wife qualifies for the academic version for only $90 :). signed not poor but far from rich!

Fantastic photo... and thank you for all the conversations about it. I work with Photoshop CS5 and can´t imagine life without it. Is the Adobe Lightroom so much better?

Kenneth Kruse on January 14, 2012

Thanks for the comments Eva, Photoshop is not replaced by Lightroom but rather supplemented by it. Although it's adjustments work on all image formats it really shines with the RAW formats. All adjustments are non destructive and it has excellent export functions. The biggest positive in my opinion is how quickly you can breeze through basic adjustments.

Eva Lewitus on January 15, 2012

Thank you Ken for your explanation. Haven´t tried to change my jpg into Raw yet. There is so much to learn!

Kenneth Kruse on January 15, 2012

Thanks again Eva, RAW is a format supported by higher end point and shoot as well as virtually all DSLR cameras. Changing a jpeg to RAW unfortunately will not get you the range of values that a native RAW image would achieve so would be pointless. I was looking at your gallery which is *VERY Beautiful *

David Brown Photogra… on January 15, 2012

My apologies for the interjection Ken but.....

Eva.... you can modify the Canon A710 to give RAW. I have done it with both the Canon A720 and the Canon S3-IS. It is easy with a little patience and reading this link

If nothing else you can get both RAW images (as well as JPGs) and a good battery meter display in your Canon.

Good luck - Jethro

Eva Lewitus on January 17, 2012

Thanks. I will have to look into that. I have a Panasonic Lumix, and am quite happy with it. But I don´t know yet all the "tricks" it can do. I think it was much easier before we had all those different digital cameras! I could work with my lens, f stop, and all the rest. Ah,the good old times. (?)

Thiago Haussig on January 26, 2012

Nice shot. Like!

Kenneth Kruse on January 26, 2012

Thanks gregovich and Thiago for the comments.

Did you ever get the chance to make a Lightroom version? How did it come out? - Kurious Ken

Kenneth Kruse on February 3, 2012

I have not yet Kurious Ken but thanks for the reminder!
