I'm glad to be the first to enjoy this, Tom. When opened out it's a beautiful, peaceful shot, carefully composed and rich in detail.
Thanks Marilyn I appreciate the nice comments. Wasn't sure if it was exposed enough but after looking at it, the more I liked the dramatic contrast.
Thanks again, Tom
Such a beautiful view, Tom. There is a special quietness that comes over before the storm. A great detail is that reflection abrupted by the dense, dark cloud.
Good one Tom. I enjoy playing around at the edge of darkness, so to speak, and you don't seem to have lost anything interesting in the darkness. You've caught what was special about the scene, IMHO.
Thank you very much Inessa for your comments and observations. Always appreciated. Tom
I completely agree Hank. The contrast one can get under these conditions can both simplify and complicate your composition decisions. Thanks for the encouragement. Regards, Tom
I agree, the exposure is perfect for this mood. I think it's more interesting to catch only the treeline and its reflection, and have only darkness inbetween. Too much detail here would detract from the colors in the sky and on the lake. Ryan
I'm very glad to see your pictures. Another great shot, Tom. Salut, Fred.
I too am glad to see your pictures Fred. Thank you for the remarks and visit. Salut, Tom
