[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These reflections caught my attention while I photo hunting in Anawangin. Sky was overcast so I adjusted my white balance accordingly.

- Tripod
- White balance set to cloudy
- Levels
- Resized + USM (have to save using Medium quality to make the size limit)


This is one of my 6 photos published in Manila Bulletin's Picture Perfect section last February 5. Manila Bulletin is one of Philippines leading broad sheets

Hi Allan,
With the nice horizontal plan, the light is the strong point of this composition! Very graphical repetitive patterns with these trees and their reflections. The Manilla Bulletin's publishes a great photographer!
Congratulations! Annie

Absolutely stunning. Well composed with perfect DOF. Beautiful colors.

OK...i won't say more but I think you can reduce the green saturation alittle Allan.

Hi Allan,

Very nice reflections in that shallow lake! Very nice to see how the reflections seem to dissolve at some point. Nice work!

Greetings, Dennis

Hi Allan: Beautiful work here in this landscape,lovely green shades of the forest and the reflections.I really like the idea of the WB set to cloudy,I will learn from this as well.... thanks for sharing Allan......Roman:0)
