Hello Elena,
Wonderful HDR image. I really like the color tones in this before the storm and the crisp green foreground grass contrasts nicely. The lighting is excellent. TFS Julie

Beautiful composition. I have seen many water reflections of the sky and clouds, but somewhat this one is different. It has a special atmosphere; nostalgic and pretty. TFS

Hi Elena,
Very nice treatment of HDR to this lake scene.
Very dramatic clouds and a fabulous reflection in the water. Beautiful greens and yellow of the grass.
Good shot!
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Hello Elena,
That's simply a BIG WOW on the Turin sky. Beautifully caught that moment from nature. Excellent luminosity and skillfully taken shot. Well done. Thanks for sharing.

Here the HDR brings out the appeal of the scene, Elena!

Great color tones and perfect sharpness with nice details.
Inclusion of the green ground adds to the overall charm of the picture.
The cloud formation brings great drama into the scene.
Well caught!

Have a nice weekend.


Very nice capture of this calm waters with dark stormy clouds in the background. Great pov and good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Fantastic! Elena.
Looks like a painting.
The color of the cloud is beautiful. The sharpness is so fine that I could see the bird flying.

An excellent image with dark and dramtatic elements ehnaced by your PP HDR work. In this case I like the near mid-framing of the horizon line capturing the sky and its reflections. The bird flying in the distance and the grassy shore angled in the lower left add strong compostional elements to your image.
Well Done

Hello Elena,
Great tones for an HDR,looking at that stormy sky,which looks normal & not touched by HDR PP work,fooled me,I had no idea until reading your note this was HDR, terrific work.
I like how the foreground grasses appear to be blowing in the wind, as do the ripples in the lake,another indication that a storm was brewing. The house with the cluster of trees is positioned strongly in your composition.Well done.



Hi Elena, in the thumbnail it looks like a hdr image but when you look at this it looks very natural. Well done. Fiona
