Still posting photos of my vacation to Montana. Still on a little site trip to Waterton Lakes NP in Canada, which is adjecent to Glacier NP in Montana. We drove up to Cameron Lake to see its beauty. When I walked around the boating area, I came across a little shed which was completely filled with life jackets.

Tech talk. Shot in RAW. adjusted white balance, crop, converted to JPEG, curves, levels, and saturation. Framed, resized and USM

Hi Niek, prachtige foto met deze heldere kleuren, mooi scherp genomen.


Hoi Niek,
Prachtige heldere, kleurrijke foto. Mooie compositie en weer eens wat anders als 'moedernatuur'. Geweldig vastgelegd complimenten!

Nice detail, Niek. Great colors. Nicely composed, too, but how about cropping a biut more from the top (starting at the life jackets)?

Hello Niek,
Most colourful image!
Well seen and nicely framed...
Superb definition gives an image it is a pleasure to look at!

Hi Niek,
This is an interesting and colorful idea :-) I like it, simple but nice with good composition. I guess that I wouldn't have thought about it... Thanks,

Excellent color saturation! Nice shot!
Points tomorrow!
I'm out!

Nice subject, vivid colors and superb details. Nice work in the workshop. Good use of RAW file.

Hoi Niek, wat een kleuren zeg, WAUW !!!
Ik zat ook al te denken om dat bovenste stuk weg te snijden maar inderdaad veranderd dan het hele beeld...

Mooie suggestieve foto met een geweldig kleurbereik !!! TFS, Frank

Just a sec...I have to take off my sunglasses that I had to put on to look at your photo!! Wow...that is some saturated color! It is a nice, sharp image. Fun! Thanks for sharing it.

That Sigma lens of yours is fantastic with the close shots and portraits. I have become fond of Sigma lenses. I wish they made more stabilized ones. And Sigma isn't so "tight" as Canon. They come with lens hoods and cases. I just paid $50 for a lens hood for my new Canon 70-300IS lens! Yes, I finally got it.

Evelynn : )

Intertesting. Great idea and well composed.

What a lot of colourful details you have here Niek. Quite a brilliant image, and those colours are very necessary if you're lost and floating on the water!
Well done,
